The stock market lost ground on Monday, sending major market benchmarks lower by more than half a percentage point. The Dow lost its grip on the 20,000 mark in the wake of concerns about economic growth and new U.S. immigration policy, and some believe that the broader geopolitical climate could have a negative impact on global commerce that in turn could start affecting multinational corporations’ business prospects. In addition, bad news from some individual companies weighed on the markets, and Transocean (NYSE:RIG), Rite Aid (NYSE:RAD), and New Gold (NYSEMKT:NGD) were among the worst performers on the day.

Sure, I will invest more in certain high-confidence picks than others, but without going overboard. This might limit the impact from a triple-digit winner in my High-Yield Investing portfolio, such as CME Group (Nasdaq: CME), where we are showing a 156% gain at last count, but it will also soften the blow from a laggard.

My pick this week has created a faster, more centralized marketplace for bond traders… and it’s led by a guy who once worked the trading floors of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME). Better yet, recently passed regulations could force traders’ hands in joining this new system.
