NOTE: I have redesigned the 401k plan manager to accurately reflect the changes in the allocation model over time. I have overlaid the actual model changes on top of the indicators to reflect the timing of the changes relative to the signals.
There are 4-steps to allocation changes based on 25% reduction increments. As noted in the chart above a 100% allocation level is equal to 60% stocks.

US markets closed higher for the second day, but traded all morning and afternoon in a narrow band that was mostly sideways. The DOW closed up 145 points and the Spooze closed up at 2091, just short of the 2100 resistance.
