Just a Case of Nerves

EST

Major stock indexes flounced around in a very tight range Monday for the third consecutive day. Surprisingly, the VIX/VXX seems to have judged the tedium of it all correctly, rising steadily intraday to close at the session high (see inset). Even though stocks haven’t been going anywhere lately, the apparent sense of things among traders is that this won’t last. If and when shares go loco, which they inevitably will, my hunch is that it the move will be down. Since no such move is likely to occur with traders loaded up on puts, we should look for a head-fake to shake them out just before the avalanche.  That’s why we’ve been trying to buy put options on moderate strength. For the exact strategy, check out my latest DIA tout below.

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.

The next webinar will be held on Tuesday, April 25. Click below to register or get more information.
