Gold was getting whacked on this particular morning after head-faking early in the session. We placed our bets on a projected bottom at 1729.00, and, lo, the futures rallied nicely from 1729.10. Although we had to drill down to the tick chart to find a ‘camo’ opportunity to get long at the bullish turning point […] Read More
Friday's shakedown was sufficiently vicious to imply that Silver Wheaton's handlers were keen on buying the stock. If the trampoline bounce they engineered from the low goes just a tad farther this morning, surpassing a minor external peak at 35.67 (see inset), bulls will be on their way to rejuvenating a larger, bullish pattern with […] Read More
The euro's daily chart looks more bullish than the dollar's at the moment, implying that Greece's latest resuscitation will pass muster where it matters most -- i.e., in the make-believe world of global finance. Even so, the futures can't afford to stall for more than a few days lest they lose the considerable momentum that […] Read More
April gold was through the midpoint resistance shown, strongly favoring more upside over the very near term to its 'D' sibling at 1737.10, at least. Notice that a precise hit would fall two ticks shy of exceeding the peak recorded on Thursday just before the futures began to fall. That peak will need to be […] Read More
The 1353.00 target precisely contained the most recent short squeeze, but if it gives way today or tomorrow, that would suggest that there is plenty of buying power remaining to be spent. The next logical stop would be a Hidden Pivot at 1362.50 noted here earlier, and although it will offer a promising spot to […] Read More
The euro's chart looks more bullish than the U.S. dollar's at the moment, suggesting that the latest deal to keep Greece afloat has passed muster with the global banking establishment. Index futures are up as well, but only by enough -- six points -- to imply DaBoyz are more interested in distributing stocks than buying […] Read More
This impromptu session from Thursday morning runs a little more than an hour, touching on B of A, the E-mini S&Ps and Comex gold. But of greatest interest, perhaps, in the final 15 minutes, is a detailed (and bullish) look at the HUI Gold Bugs Index. My suggestion is to fast-forward to this segment (unless […] Read More
The laser-like 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 25. Click below to register or get more information.
