Joe Terranova said that one reason why the market is moving higher is that despite a bearish sentiment, money managers have to put their money to work.
Pete Najarian said the financials were particularly strong, with
trading at $167.
Adami noted that
, which closed at $45.58, was trading at its highest levels since last September.
Melissa Lee, the moderator of the show, shifted to oil, which gained 4% for the day. Terranova said most money managers want to be in the energy space after a significant drawdown in inventory in August.
With gold hitting $1,000 an ounce today, Terranova said everything lines up for gold to move higher for the next four months before it tops out in January or February.
Terranova said there also will be continuing underlying support for copper, aluminum and oil so long as the dollar remains weak. Adami had high praise for
, which he says will continue to move higher. In the past six months, it is up more than 260%.
Najarian said coal names, including Walter and
, have also been "on fire." He advised investors in
to buy some puts because they are at the cheapest levels in two years.
Taking a look at commodities from a larger perspective, Terranova said commodities are entering into a "perfect storm." He expects them to do well in the fourth quarter, and he said central banks around the globe are seeking diversification and want to own something other than U.S. assets.
Adami had mixed opinions about some breaking news on

reporter Rick Santani said it doesn't make sense to buy gold at these levels.
was knocked down 11% today after Credit Suisse analyst Thomas Gallagher said he believed there was no common equity value in the stock.
Gallagher said that shareholders are caught in a squeeze with the $87 billion the company owes to the federal government and what assets it can sell. He said the company's most valuable properties are its foreign life insurance businesses and its global property casualty insurance business.
Where will oil be at the close of the year? Bradley Samples, Summit Energy commodity analyst, sees oil at between $80 to $90 by year's end, but not above $100. He based his forecast on a V or U shape recovery. He said crude could plunge to $50 if it's a double-dipped recession.

Mike Abramsky, RBC Capital Markets analyst, said he expects to see a launch and revitalization of Apple's iPods and a new version of iTunes. He does not expect to see a tablet or notebook at the event. He said the show is all about Apple's efforts to maintain its leadership of MP3's and the iPhone.
On the prop desk, Karen Finerman zeroed in on
which chose the worst time to transform itself to one heavily tied to commercial and residential construction with very expensive financing. She said the company has managed to survive by squeezing something out of the business and refinancing some of its debt.
Daniel Clifton, head of policy research for Strategas, doesn't think much of Obama's chances of getting its public option plank of its health care reform package through Congress. "The votes aren't there," he said.
He said Obama will give it one last push in a major address this week, as he tries to rally his party in the face of internal discord. He said the final version of the bill will deal more with coverage, individual mandates and increased subsidies. He said he would be buying managed care names on dips.
