tpoto's signal is now also bearish

In my toolbox, I keep tpoto's "2 ratio" signal from post #241906, which includes:

This was done using the SPY ETF, monthly
adjusted returns from Yahoo.

Calculations:
A= EOM close
B= EOM close six months ago
C= EOM close 13 months ago

Rule: Buy (or stay in) if either A/B OR B/C is >.965
Sell (stay out) if BOTH are <.965


As far as I can tell, these ratios are still above .965, unless I'm doing something wrong (which is a real possibility). Could someone confirm?

Thanks!
