If you need convincing that our proprietary "camouflage" tactics can very nearly eliminate the stress and dollar risk of trading such vehicles as Comex gold and silver contracts, this lesson is a must. Because bullion futures had triggered bull trades the previous night, we dissected the opportunities this had presented with great care. The effort […] Read More
Shorting gold and silver via camouflage will take some getting used to, but we may as well try to make hay as long as weakness is the prevailing mood. A subtle opportunity in Silver was developing late Wednesday night, and so I've sketched it out hypothetically. If it doesn't pan out you could also try […] Read More
A bottom-fishing setup similar to the one I've featured in today's gold tout is where night owls should look for action. The 'p' midpoint where you can attempt it lies at 29.045, and you may use either camouflage, or more dangerously a three-tick stop-loss. The futures would be signaling further distress over the near-term down […] Read More
Night owls should train their attention on the Hidden Pivot midpoint at 1604.00 shown in the chart, since it might be the best opportunity you'll have to try bottom-fishing. Risk no more than $60 per contract initially, implying you'll need to get long via camouflage. You can bid 1604.10 straightaway, stop 1603.80, but that is […] Read More
Yesterday's tout turned out to have been unnecessarily wary of a short-squeeze. Why no ambush? As I've suggested in today's commentary, perhaps the bears who played patsy for Tuesday's big rally had misgivings about the supposed significance of the news concerning Spain's last bond auction. For Wednesday night, the only intresting opportunity that beckons right […] 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, August 16. Click below to register or get more information.
This 9-minute video explains Rick's trading and forcasting method.
