CLH12 – March Crude (Last:97.37)

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

The news media have gotten revved up about a possible pre-emptive strike by Israel on Iran's A-bomb facilities, but if it were imminent crude would be warning us by moving higher rather than lower (just as it did, mysteriously, two months before the U.S. invasion of Iraq). So that we can tune out the hysterical […] Read More

SLW – Silver Wheaton (Last:35.98)

– Posted in: Current Touts, Rick's Picks

Look for the correction to bring SLW down to at least 35.59. the Hidden Pivot midpoint of the pattern shown.   You can try bottom-fishing there with caution, but bear in mind that if the support is breached by more than about 4-5 cents, the futures would be signaling further vulnerability down to at least 34.83, […] Read More

SIH12 – March Silver (Last:33.680)

– Posted in: Current Touts, Rick's Picks

Friday's downdraft was impulsively bearish, but the good news is that sellers needed a rally and a running start to breach the required two prior lows. Also, their follow-up push failed by two ticks to reach the 33.455 midpoint support. This is sketchy evidence on wish to base a bullish outlook for the near term, […] Read More

GCJ12 – April Gold (Last:1725.30)

– Posted in: Current Touts, Rick's Picks

Friday's upthrust cleared an important peak at 1763.00 from December 8, refreshing the bullish impulsiveness of the daily chart.  My hunch is that it will take another day or two of consolidation before the futures are ready to roll again. However, because all three price points of the rally pattern we'd use to get long […] Read More

ESH12 – March E-Mini S&P (Last:1335.00)

– Posted in: Current Touts, Rick's Picks

Friday's buying spree was robustly impulsive on the daily chart, surpassing no fewer than one internal and two external peaks.  This all but guarantees that the S&Ps will eventually push above the highs of last spring and early summer. Notice that the rally did not take out the topmost of them at 1344.50. This could […] Read More

Dubious Payroll Numbers Ignite Wall Street

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

As last week ended, one might have believed Wall Street investors had just about everything wrong.  Stocks were up sharply on bullish payroll news that flatly contradicted something every American knows – i.e., that the Great Recession is still very much with us; T-bonds were getting whacked on the flimsy assumption that the economy is […] 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.
