FAANG-Stock Rampage Dragging a Tired Stock Market Higher


Although headlines over the weekend suggested that the ransom malware that wreaked havoc around the world on Friday could get second wind on Monday when workers return to their desks, there was no sign Sunday night that Wall Street was even remotely concerned.  Index futures were trading moderately higher, but not by enough to suggest DaBoyz were trying to distribute stock ahead of a possible Monday selloff. Although the broad averages look like they could use a rest, a FAANG-stock rampage has been making it very difficult for this to occur. I have higher targets outstanding for FB, AMZN, AAPL, NFLX and GOOG, and although subscribers hold a small put position in QQQ, we should resist the temptation to get in their way.

The FAANG stocks actually have a $2.5TR capitalization, Seneca. Add in MSFT, and you’re up to $3TR. Two of those companies are just glorified ad agencies, and one — AAPL, a vendor of overpriced hardware — will come unglued in a recession.

FB, AMZN, AAPL, NFLX and GOOG, 1 trillion market value have completed a 2nd ‘dot com’ bubble.


The ‘lower interest rate yield’ today towards the March 1st equity high, puts the new trend in place.

The breaking of last weeks equity low will generate a lower high and VIX, which may create a longer term low in the equity market to signal that the ‘beware’ has pass.

The Rut non confirming the NAS is in place.

1 Trillion market value is market history for nothing more than ‘texting in a moving car’ to one another.

Have a great day today Rick and keep up the good work.

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 17. Click below to register or get more information.
