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

John Hussman, a mutual fund manager for whom I have a great deal of respect, says that stocks are no longer overvalued. Not urging us to run out and buy, he is saying that the long-term outlook is the best that it's been for some time, precisely because stocks have been hammered so badly.

I'm conflicted on the idea. I will keep my long/short balance and try to move in or out of long positions slowly.
