Although price action in the last week or so has been impacted and rangebound, most of it has occurred as corrective relative to a 33.740 peak from December 2 that was impulsively exceeded last Thursday. The bad guys should take this purposeful stall as a warning that they will not be able to hold Silver […] Read More
April Gold did not adequately correct the hourly chart to set up an instant push above last Friday's 1765.90 peak, but the 30-minute bars will at least get the futures to the 1760.20 'D' target of the lesser pattern shown (see inset). If it gives way easily, bulls should have little trouble taking out the […] Read More
We'll use the 119.91 target to get short, whack-a-mole style, if Goldman should poke its ugly little head up. This is slightly lower than the Hidden pivot target given here earlier, but the pattern shown amply supports the new number. I'll specifically recommend that you buy two March 110 puts (or multiple thereof) with GS […] Read More
The 8.08 rally target shown look sufficiently compelling to warrant the purchase of puts when the stock gets there. Camouflageurs can short the shares naked, risking no more than 6 cents per round lot, but for those who prefer the ease and leverage of options, I'll recommend buying two March 9 puts (or multiple thereof) […] Read More
I've asked veteran camouflageurs who frequent the chat room to guide less-experienced traders if an exceptional opportunity to short the E-Mini S&P should occur when I'm not around. If our entry trigger gets hit while I'm conducting the weekly tutorial session online between 11 a.m. and noon EST, I'll make sure the information is disseminated […] Read More
I've alluded to a key target in today's commentary, and although merely talking about it has made it one of those high-profile numbers that are probably jinxed from the start, the Hidden Pivot itself is real enough and should provide sufficient stopping power to allow us to get short without risking too much. Putting aside […] 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, January 23. Click below to register or get more information.
