Yesterday's apparently gratuitous swoon recouped a nasty intraday loss and then some, but the rebound would need to go a further 50 cents, exceeding a 34.060 'external' peak recorded on February 9, before we infer that anything interesting is happening. In the meantime, the p midpoint support of the pattern shown (assuming the so-far point […] Read More
The crude oil market has a well-defined resistance area between 103.90 and 105.80, with a pair of hidden pivots just above there at 106.39 and 106.60. The late-2011 decline to 74.95 was the biggest pullback in the oil price since its historic post-bubble low. A very fast rebound from 74.95 to 103.37 has been followed […] Read More
Yesterday's action in the gold market was dramatic but inconclusive with respect to which way the next big move will go. The low of 1706.70 is visually outstanding but has not (yet) become part of any useful patterns. Gold traders should now be watching a series of prior highs ranging from 1739.20 to 1818.80, as […] Read More
Wednesday night's bullish tout anticipated the miserable stupidity of yesterday's rebound, which effectively transformed the previous day's equally stupid decline into a v-shaped swoon. Where to next? Probably higher, but does anyone really care? In any event, the rally created a bullish impulse leg on the hourly chart -- one with a short k-A segment […] 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, May 24. Click below to register or get more information.
This 9-minute video explains Rick's trading and forcasting method.
