US Dollar

Rick was recently a guest on The Financial Survival Network radio program. In this wide-ranging interview, he discusses gold, silver, the dollar’s undeserved safe-haven status, Europe’s crisis, the bogus dollar-swap arrangement and the frightening global geopolitical scene […] Read More

The US dollar index blasted higher on Sunday night, and the action since then gives us an upside target of 77.340.  As the attached chart shows, the dollar's quick gains surpassed numerous external prior highs, but follow-through to the "D" target will be needed to take the index past the prominent 76.870 high of last […] Read More

[Addendum: I misread the date on Lira's piece -- his blog is not one of my regular stops on the Web --  and it turns out that it was written a year ago in August, not last month as erroneously noted. As readers may have surmised, however, that does not weaken or change my argument.  Nor would I […] Read More

From our globetrotting friend Jonathan Auerbach, here's an excerpt from Auerbach & Grayson's latest report: "The resounding reversal in the primary trend of the US Dollar is the cornerstone of a bearish litany of technical evidence which resonates with the ominous plangency of 2008, and strongly reinforces our longstanding belief that significant downside remains for […] Read More

Our elected leaders need only look at the chart below to see how the budget stalemate will turn out.  Gold has been rising at an exceedingly steep pitch since early July, implying that whatever deal emerges from the sausage factory on Capitol Hill, it will not much affect the ongoing destruction of the dollar that […] Read More

During the Oscar telecast one year, Johnny Carson wisecracked that if a terrorist were to blow up the auditorium and kill everyone in the audience, it would be the worst thing ever to happen to showbiz but the best thing to happen to Pia Zadora's never-quite-airborne career as a singer and actress.  And so it […] Read More

Gold and Silver are down sharply Sunday night on word of bin Laden's death, and so I've furnished benchmarks for each that can help us judge the severity of the selloff.  I've also identified the conditions necessary to signal a possible bullish reversal in the US dollar, but so far tonight there is not sufficient […] Read More

Take a gander at the chart accompanying today's DXY tout if you want to see how nasty it could get for the US dollar before it finds a support capable of arresting the long-term bear, at least for a while […] Read More

Using information disseminated in the chat room, we took a casual swing at Hecla yesterday that was based on a minor impulse leg and a strong tout from our friend Phil Calderone. I will formalize the effort to get long in this stock if an exceptional opportunity arises, but at this moment I do not share Phil's […] Read More

Check out today's tout and chart for the Dollar Index, since it's possible to infer the greenback is developing thrust for a mini-moon shot into the low 90s […] 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, July 7. Click below to register or get more information.
