Melissa Lee, the moderator of the show, said the impact of today's selloff was most apparent in the commodities as gold and copper fell. Adami said the raising of margins by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange exposed speculators in the soft commodities market.

Patty Edwards said she was staying in the industrial metals trade because she still believes in the global auto industry story. Seymour also said he liked the platinum and palladium trade, adding he would short

Stillwater Mining



SPDR S&P Metals and Mining


On a selloff like today's, Adami said it's good for investors to get out their buy list and look for opportunities to get into stocks. He said he would short

Rio Tinto



Freeport McMoRan

, which fell 18% this week off a discouraging outlook, Seymour said the stock got punished because its CEO John Chambers talked about getting into new businesses and the company's overly optimistic growth projections.

Grasso advised against buying

Abercrombie & Fitch

In the "ear to wall" segment Lee asked Peter Boockvar, equity strategist at Miller Tabak, if Ireland is close to a default. He said the probability of a bailout has been lowered because there aren't any major maturities until June, 2011. However, he said the country is under a lot of market pressure to deal with its budget deficit problem earlier.

Boockvar said restructuring is needed in debt-ridden countries like Ireland, Greece and Portugal because they are not making much headway in increasing their GDPs to pay back the debts.

As for the first of QE2 this week, he said the Fed's quantitative easing efforts failed before it got off the ground because it set off an inflationary scare that rattled the markets.

In the final trades, Seymour said to short Rio Tinto, while Adami said he would short Freeport McMoRan. Finerman said she expected her puts in the
