in the following places:
Rick Ackerman’s daily forecasts are superior to that of any other technical data I have seen. In particular, I have found the bond and S&P analysis to be extremely reliable, in addition to the individual securities.
Rick, you are a genius. Gold had one of its biggest swings today in 20 years, and you nailed both the exact high and low by within a total of less than one point.

Rick Ackerman – Outspoken but Never Outmatched
So, who exactly is Rick Ackerman, and why should you trust his judgment?
Barron’s once labeled him an “intrepid trader” in a headline heralding his key role in solving a notorious pill-tampering & options trading case. The subsequent conviction netted him a $200,000 reward, and the story was retold on TV’s “FBI: The Untold Story.”
His professional background includes:
- Twelve years as a market maker on the floor of the Pacific Coast Exchange,
- Three years as an financial investigator with renowned San Francisco private eye Hal Lipset,
- Seven years as a market options reporter and newspaper editor,
- Three years as a financial columnist for the Sunday San Francisco Examiner
- Over two decades as a contributor to publications ranging from Barron’s to The Antiquarian Bookman to Fleet Street Letter and Utne Reader.
His detailed strategies for stocks, options, and indexes have appeared since the early 1990s in Black Box Forecasts, a newsletter geared specifically to professional option traders.
Rick Ackerman is the editor of Rick’s Picks and a partner in Blue Fin Financial LLC, a commodity trading advisor.
What Our Subscribers Are Saying…
“I have made over $5,000 on the yen based on your advice.”
“I hope you keep yen futures on your list. Year-to-date, I have made over $5,000 on the yen based on your advice. While I have improvised and stayed with some positions longer than you have recommended, your coverage has been quite accurate.”
“The four calls that I recently bought on your say-so for $200 produced an $1,825 profit in just a couple of weeks.”
“I’ve been trading very sporadically off and on since around 1990 but never made any money until I started using your recommendations. The four calls that I recently bought on your say-so for $200 produced an $1,825 profit in just a couple of weeks. Thanks for helping me do it without losing any sleep!”
“Rick’s hit more bulls eyes than any other forecasting service that I’ve ever seen.
“I used the newsletter to get an edge as an options market maker. I wish I had been trading his futures recommendations at the same time, because their accuracy in bonds, the S&Ps and the yen was even more amazing than the stock forecasts.
“He almost never missed a call, and very often predicted intraday tops and bottoms on the S&Ps correctly to within a tick or two. Even major turning points have been called to within just a few ticks of where they actually occurred.”
“Just closed a gold trade for a $50,000 profit!
“That is huge for me -- I made half my annual salary in six weeks.”
