'Fast Money' Recap: No 'All Clear' for the Markets Yet

On gold, Kelly reiterated that he's surprised by its price reaction to all of the issues in Washington. With negative real-interest rates and ongoing quantitative easing, he concluded that the market is incorrectly pricing gold.

Merck (MRK) was the first stock on the show's "Pops & Drops" segment. Nathan said the job slashing is good for the company and bad for the labor market.

McKesson (MCK) jumped 2.5% and Khouw said the stock is near the upper end of its historical valuation range. He advised using this pop to take some profits.

Chicago Bridge & Iron (CBI) popped 3%. Adami said the stock is not overly valued and thinks investors can stay long.

Walgreen (WAG) moved up 4% on Tuesday and Lebenthal said its earnings report shows consumers are starting open their wallets and spend some money.

H&R Block (HRB) popped 4.5%. Kelly said the company should benefit from the Affordable Care Act. He advised traders on the long side to use $26 as their stop-loss.

Ford (F) was the featured stock on the show's "Street Fight" segment. Lebenthal defended the stock, saying the global economic recovery is helping to drive demand. He added Ford is undervalued, has a solid dividend yield and builds high-demand vehicles.

Kelly disagreed, arguing the company's inventories continue to increase and so do the incentives, and incentives should not be increasing if demand remained strong. He added that industry sales growth is starting to slow and it's time to take profits after the big run.

Yaron Werber, director and senior analyst at Citigroup, was a guest on the show and said the Food and Drug Administration will remain open because of surplus funding, which will allow late-stage drug testing to continue. However, early-stage applications will not be accepted by the FDA if the government shutdown lasts for too long. Ultimately, the longer the shutdown lasts, the bigger effect it will eventually have on the biotech sector.

Lions Gate Entertainment's (LGF) CEO Michael Burns was a guest on the show and said it's a good sign that roughly three-quarters of its online tickets sold out for its upcoming film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. He added that he expects this film, the second of the trilogy, to do much better internationally than the first film, which brought in about $280 million from overseas.

Nathan said sales aren't growing as much as they should and investors should not buy into the stock at current levels.

For their final trades, Kelly said to buy the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (EEM) with a stop-loss at $40. Nathan said he was a buyer of Exxon Mobil (XOM) with a stop-loss at $86. Khouw said to sell upside calls against a long Lions Gate Entertainment position, Lebenthal was buying Corning (GLW) and Adami was a buyer of Mylan (MYL).
