Do-It-Yourself Specials in Gold and Silver Futures

– Posted in: Free, Rick's Picks, Thought for Today

Gold and Silver futures are in uptrends Tuesday night that could generate opportune 'buy' signals. To assist you in getting aboard with as little risk as possible, I've sketched out detailed scenarios that show how these trends might be traded […] Read More

SIH12 – March Silver (Last:29.470)

– Posted in: Current Touts, Rick's Picks

The rally broke through a minor midpoint resistance at 29.410 around mid-morning, shortening the odds of a follow-through burst to its 'D' sibling at 30.135. The best low-risk buying opportunity night owls are likely to see would come following a b-c pullback from between peaks #1 and #2, or #2 and #3. Take the trade […] Read More

GCG12 – February Gold (Last:1615.20)

– Posted in: Current Touts, Rick's Picks

Buyers could have an excellent opportunity to get long via camouflage using the price points shown and the subtle ABC pattern thereof. Buy one contract using a buy-stop at the still-undetermined 'x', but step it up to four contracts if you're able to use 'camo' in a pattern of lesser degree with theoretical entry risk […] Read More

ESH12 – March E-Mini S&P (Last:1229.00)

– Posted in: Current Touts, Rick's Picks

Yesterday's monster rally fell just shy of the 1240.00 target I disseminated in a morning update, but if the futures break loose today and close above it, that would augur more upside to as high as 1284.25 (aka 'D') over the near term. Our trading bias would be aggressively bullish above 1240.00, but camouflage opportunities […] Read More

DJIA – Dow Industrial Average (Last:12104)

– Posted in: Current Touts, Free, Rick's Picks

Should I mention that yesterday's 337-point rally was not impulsive on the larger intraday charts? Check out the 240-minute bars if you don't believe me. Another measly 31 points would have done the job, but it looks like the panic-stricken shorts who powered yesterday's wilding spree just didn't have it in them.  My hunch is […] Read More

Prospect of World Peace Sends Stocks Soaring

– Posted in: Commentary for the Week of March 8, Free

U.S. stocks showed unbridled enthusiasm yesterday for the changing of the guard in North Korea, tacking 337 points onto the Dow Industrial Average. Could heir apparent Kim Jong Eun be the Man of Peace the world has been waiting for?  It sure looked that way on Wall Street, where a wave of optimism about something […] Read More

Master the Secrets
of Hidden Pivot Analysis

The laser-like accuracy of Rick Ackerman’s forecasts are 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, April 21. Click below to register or get more information.
