ESM13 – June E-Mini S&P (Last:1555.500)


The 1617.84 S&P 500 rally target flagged in today’s commentary implies that trading should be done from the long side right now, preferably via camouflage. To assist you in this task, I’ve reproduced a 10-minute chart of the E-Mini S&Ps that contains the kind of subtleties we require when attempting to board such a well-advanced trend. Indeed, an entry signal that I’ve labeled with an ‘x’ has been tripped in the last hour. I am recommending that you use the 10-minute bars, as I have, to identify similarly promising opportunities. _______ UPDATE (11:49 a.m. EDT):  In the chat room this morning, an alert ‘Kibitzer’ signaled a bull trade that is working out nicely at this point.  Here’s the recaptitulation: 1) (11:07 a.m.) K: We have a tentative C at 1551 (x= +1.75 points); 11:13 x triggered; 2) RA:  (11:13 a.m.) Thank you, Kibitzer. Off an actual low of 1550.75, entry was signaled at 1552.50. P=1554.00, where half is to be exited. D=1557.00; K (11:19): Midpoint success; RA (11:30): Yes, success indeed. U are out of half, with a 1551.00 cost basis for what remains. Use a fixed stop-loss at 1550.50, o-c-o with an order to close out an additional 25% of the original position at 1557.00.

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, December 1. Click below to register or get more information.
