Trying to time the stock market's swings amid the congressional budget impasse isn't such a great idea, Josh Brown of Ritholtz Wealth Management said Monday.
"I don't think one should be playing because this is a headline-by-headline market," he said, noting that stocks moved on incremental news about a possible deal in Congress to end the partial government shutdown and avert a default on U.S. debt. "This is going to go on until there is a resolution."
On CNBC's "Fast Money," Brown suggested that being ready to trade on a debt deal was crucial.

"What I will say is the market has been extraordinarily resilient, and the only takeaway from that that should be important to you is that if and when there is a resolution, even if it's a can-kick, like what they did in October 2011, the market's going to want to buy that news," he said.

"I think a resolution in D.C. does have to be bought because right now that's putting a cap on the rally," he said.
TheStreet CIO Stephanie Link said that she continued to watch for values in the auto industry, aerospace and selected energy names, such as National Oilwell Varco, Occidental and Chicago Bridge & Iron.

"That's ludicrous for anyone to try to bet on that," he said. "So, I'm continuing with my philosophy of sticking with my core positions, adding when it's attractive and weathering the storm. If there are some tremendous buying opportunities, like we saw with Facebook last week, then I'll add to that trading position.
"My trading positions are at the lowest level they've been in a long time."
