Viewed from the trading pits, last week's death dive looked like the end of the world to some denizens. Click here for the perspective of floor traders who had a ringside seat […] Read More
If Goldman drifts lower over the next 5-7 days, we'll look to bottom-fish down at 136.11, the lowest Hidden Pivot target that can be derived from the intraday charts. If I can come up with a way to initiate the trade using a limit bid for some near-the-money call options, I'll feature the trade as a Pick of the […] Read More
With this morning's lunatic price action, I have updated the Mini-Dow forecast to reflect a new rally targt at 10937 […] Read More
As of around 10 p.m. EDT Sunday, the futures looked bound for 10670, a shortable Hidden Pivot (albeit a relatively risky one; a more conservative short can be initiated at 10712). That would represent a 335-point gain over Friday's close, and although it would not recoup last Thursday's loss completely, it would handily exceed the day's […] Read More
A print exceeding 18.910 today or tomorrow would kick the buying into high gear, creating a bullish impulse leg of daily-chart degree that would turn December's watershed high at 19.420 into a sitting duck. Anything less, however, could strand Friday's spike, leaving buyers to cool their heels in the wake of Friday's spirited charge. More immediately, […] Read More
Friday's robust thrust fell ten dollars shy of a 1224.70 target, subjecting Gold to a little more bullying than usual Sunday evening. We can ignore it as long as the futures hold above 1189.20, but anything below that number will create a mildly bearish impulse leg on the hourly chart. If there's opportunity brewing for […] Read More
Early Sunday evening, index futures were caught in a vicious short-squeeze that bids fair to recapture all of last Thursday's losses. It would seem to be drawing its energy from the latest -- and rather large, even by American standards -- European bailout package. The loan guarantees just announced amount to some $560 billion, offered to the […] Read More
So, was it thinking machines that put stocks into a death dive last week, or was it primal human fear? Either way, there’s a neurological disease at work and therefore little likelihood of a cure. Even worse, since these diseases tend to be degenerative, we should expect something still more disruptive in the future. Ham-handed […] Read More

The consistent accuracy of Rick Ackerman’s forecasts is well known in the trading world, where his Hidden Pivot Method has achieved cult status. Rick’s proprietary trading/forecasting system is easy to learn, probably because he majored in English, not rocket science. Just one simple but powerful trick -- managing the risk of an ongoing trade with stop-losses based on ‘impulse legs’ – can be grasped in three minutes and put to profitable use immediately. Quite a few of his students will tell you that using ‘impulsive stops’ has paid for the course many times over.
Another secret Rick will share with you, “camouflage trading,” takes more time to master, but once you get the hang of it trading will never be the same. The technique entails identifying ultra-low-risk trade set-ups on, say, the one-minute bar chart, and then initiating trades in places where competition tends to be thin.
Most important of all, Rick will teach you how to develop market instincts (aka “horse sense”) by observing the markets each day from the fixed vantage point that only a rigorously disciplined trading system can provide.
The three-hour Hidden Pivot Course is offered live each month. If it’s more convenient, you can take it in recorded form at your leisure, as many times as you like. The course fee includes “live” trading sessions (as opposed to hypothetical ‘chalk-talk’) every Wednesday morning, access to hundreds of recorded hours of tutorial sessions, and access to an online library that will help you achieve black-belt mastery of Hidden Pivot trading techniques.
The next webinar will be held on Tuesday, June 28. Click below to register or get more information.
This 9-minute video explains Rick's trading and forcasting method.
