The Market remains in Red Light mode according to the 1-2-3 model. The Inflation Model has remains at a negative two-and-a-half an inflation stars ("deflation").

Mr. Market seems to have been rising in anticipation of a bailout, but traded down in its largest one-day (point) loss on Monday. Surprisingly, the American public is not going gently into that good night of $700M and the government legislatation of blue skies and sunny days. If you're not already out of stocks, might I suggest lowering your position? And maybe buying a short or two?

I am considering borrowing against my 401(k) and using the proceeds to buy some shorts (other than financial; see my rant from last week). I could go all to money market, but I am down on stocks enough to buy puts or go short, something I cannot do from within the 401(k).

Enjoy your trading this week. We're certainly living in interesting times.
