The Market has turned to Yellow Light mode according to the 1-2-3 model. This is because the S&P P/E ratio has dropped below 17.0. (I read a good article from about the changing duration of stocks and bonds. John Hussman thinks the market has moved from ridiculously overpriced to about right.) The Inflation Model is close to toward neutral, remaining at negative one inflation star ("deflation").

What am I looking at as far as stocks go? I'm not ready to jump in with both feet, and won't become a raging bull until the 1-2-3 model turns back to green. But I am taking a peek at some high-dividend-yielding stocks. There are some mining stocks and some energy stocks that are yielding safely in the double digits. Gold may be at a short-term high, but it seems to be in an uptrend. So that's where I'm doing my research: for stocks with a fat dividend and waiting for gold to put in a bullish divergence.

House work continues. John came by to help get some of the solar panels rewired to pass code. And I climbed up on the roof to change the terminus from PVC pipe to a steel "weatherhead," which is what the electrical inspector asked for.

Have fun trading this week.
