The Market has moved back to Red Light mode according to the 1-2-3 model. The S&P P/E ratio jumped back to 19.4. The Inflation Model has moved back to a slightly inflationary stance, and is now at modestly inflationary at a positive one half inflation star ("decreasing inflation").

I'm one of the 35,000 souls who have been let go by the Bank of America. I wish the Bank well as they try to sell off troubled assets and recover from the excesses of Merril Lynch and their CEO.

I was looking for a job within the Bank writing trading tools for the Front Office. That would be right up my alley! But it looks like that job is indefinitely on hold.

I spoke to a friend, Britt, who is writing condors. Sounds like an excellent strategy when the market is in a trading range even though volatility is high.

Have fun trading this week.
