Q: What kind of signal do I need for yielding?

Typically you are simply turning right (this is a right turn, isn’t it?), so simply use your right-turn signal just like you would for any other right turn.

intersection_Yield

 

The only time I would use a left signal would be after the right signal and only if I’m planning to go directly into the left lane.

 

intersection_Yield2

Usually if you’re yielding while facing a green traffic light (if you know what I mean), you need to watch for  left-turning vehicles:

 

intersection_YieldLeft

 

If you are yielding while facing a red light, you need to watch for regular “through” traffic from your left:
