Thank you for the replies and confirmation.
1) Unfortunately, you can't install that wire on a 120 volt circuit since it does not meet the National Electrical Code. Two reasons. Number one it is only rated for a maximum of 30 volts. Reason number two is that the National Electrical Code (NEC) requires specific wire colors for the 120 volt branch circuits. A yellow tracer conductor is not compliant with the NEC color code.
2) For a 120 volt circuit, the wiring must be rated at 600 volts and the exterior insulation must be rated as type "THHN" or "THWN" or a combination rating of "THHN/THWN".
3) If the circuit is protected by a 15 amp circuit breaker
, you will require 14 AWG Copper, type "THHN" or "THWN" or a combination rating of each. If the circuit is protected by a 20 amp circuit breaker, you will require 12 AWG Copper, type "THHN" or "THWN" or a combination rating of each.
Shown in the link below is typical 14 AWG Copper wire that is used for 120 volt circuits protected by a 15 amp circuit breaker:

4) If the wire will be installed in a conduit
system, either the solid or stranded versions are code compliant.
5) If not installing the wire in a conduit system, then similar wire sizes and insulation types can be found in NM Romex and MC Metal Clad cable assemblies.
