Traders weigh cashing out of retail stocks on Cyber Monday

Is it time to ring the register on the retail trade?

The CNBC "Fast Money" traders debated whether to buy into retail stocks on Cyber Monday or look outside the sector.

A key retail ETF is up more than 9 percent in the past month as people hit the stores for holiday shopping.

Trader Dan Nathan said stocks like Home Depot and Lowe's may have bounced off of recent lows but are still in downtrends. He said investors can sell those stocks here as well as Wal-Mart.

Trader Pete Najarian said he's gravitating toward metal stocks like U.S. Steel and Freeport-McMoRan and believes there's plenty of upside opportunity in them.

Trader Brian Kelly said he pared a lot of his positions on Monday and sold out of the Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund, taking his profits off the table. He also took positions in gold miners and silver funds, which he said are promising investments with higher inflation on the horizon.
