I am reading Safe Strategies for Financial Freedom by Van Tharp, D.R. Barton, and Steve Sjuggerud. I own an earlier edition of the book, but got the latest edition from the library. Two of the models that the authors use are 1-2-3 model and the Four-Star Inflation-Deflation Tracker. (The latter was updated on his website to make it less subject to government manipulation; you can read about it at http://www.iitm.com/123-model-update.htm.)

The 1-2-3 model uses three criteria: the P/E of the market (I use the S&P 500), whether the Fed rasied rates in the past 6 months, and whether the market (again, I use the S&P) is above or below its 45 week average). Based on these three, they will flash a Red Light (Sell), Yellow Light (Buy and Hold), and Green Light (Strong Buy). We are currently in Red Light mode.

The Four-Star model uses Four criteria: The CRB index, the Basic Materials Sector (XLB), the London Gold fix, and the Financial Sector (XLF). It compares the 2-month and 6-month differences from today, and scores from -1 (deflationary) to plus 4 (increasing inflation). We are currently at plus 3.5 (inflation danger).

I'll publish these each week, but it's time to be looking for the exits.
