The S&P 500 is again in a cautious Yellow Light mode according to the 1-2-3 model. The Inflation Model is again neutral at zero stars.

The NC Sustainable Energy Association is having a conference this week in Raleigh. I might be able to stick around for the networking mixer on Tuesday night. If nothing else, maybe I can figure out what other people are doing with solar.

I finally threw in my lot and sold some bearish June call spreads. Several indices are at the top of their Bollinger Bands, so it just seems reasonable. I suppose the market might continue to go up, but that seems less likely than a gentle or steep fall. If I get the latter, I will sell some bullish put spreads to turn this into an iron condor.

Have fun trading this week.
