The S&P 500 is again in a cautious Yellow Light mode according to the 1-2-3 model. The Inflation Model remains at a dangerous-sounding three stars ("inflation danger"). It is starting to sound ominous.
I am looking at the VIX, as it drops to a high-but-somewhat-normal 33. The VIX, you will recall, is a measure of the anxiety that the markets are exhibiting. It is calculated by using the option premiums of a stock index. Its drop may indicate that the markets are sanguine with the rise and do not anticipate a fall. Of course, for a perpetual bear such as me, it makes sense to buy puts now. Hey, don't listen to me. But you'd better take those newscasters with a grain of salt when they're calling out the end of the bear market.
Have a good week trading.
