A Tone Change in 2017?


Index futures have begun 2017 with a gutless rally Monday evening that smells suspiciously like distribution. We’ll likely know soon. In any event, I’m going to hold off until the regular session begins and the chat-room discussion warms,  before I start to update touts with tradable targets.  If the big trends that have been in place since July — i.e., stocks and the dollar up, bullion and bonds down — are about to reverse, it might take a day or two before DaBoyz tip their hand. In the meantime, I’m as clueless as you are about what the new year may hold in store for investors.  When 2016 ended, the S&Ps had been stalled for two weeks at a rally target that was ten months in coming. The burden of proof will therefore be on bulls, but they might need a running start, in the form of an engineered swoon, to take out December’s ceiling. _______ UPDATE (12:11 a.m. Tuesday): Buyers are not backing off. See my ESH17 tout update for details, including a short-term rally target.

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.
