Reason for Investors to Be Hopeful — But Also Terrified


Last week, I published a copper chart here that could be used to justify a very bullish outlook for the stock market — for a move to as high, even, as Dow 30,000. However, my latest E-Mini S&P tout raises the possibility that stocks have already begun what could turn out to be the worst bear market in history. Lest I be accused of schizophrenia and find myself reviled by lurkers who judge the quality of my work by the headlines atop the free forecasts they receive from me, let me say that I have never pretended to own a crystal ball. In fact, and as we all know, no one, not even the wisest guru on the planet, knows for sure whether the bull market will continue for another five years, or ten years, or in fact ended with the August 7 high.

My gut feeling is that if stocks have not already topped, they are about to — in a big way. Even so, I will continue to pay close attention to technical signs, especially on the lesser charts; for it is there that a bear market would first become apparent. Indeed, every bear market in history has begun with a downtrending abcd pattern on the one-minute bar chart. I am watching for this now, since August’s weakness has proceeded from a high that precisely matched an important rally target I’d flagged for subscribers. But I am also watching AAPL closely, since it is a key market bellwether that appears to have $8 of upside before it reaches a major Hidden Pivot target at 168.46. That target will have been more than four years in coming if it is achieved, and it looks to me like a great place to get short. I am encouraged to think my forecast could be a bullseye, since a similar forecast for AMZN published in June nailed the stock’s all-time high at 1083.31 to the exact penny seen weeks later. AMZN has since fallen as low as $941, a 13% plunge, raising the possibility that its bull market top is in, even if AAPL’s is not.  If you want to stay closely apprised, consider subscribing to Rick’s Picks.

With all the interventions in the world economies in general, and the stock and bond markets in particular, anything is possible.

We have already seen:
Hedge Fund bailouts: LTCM
Real Estate bailouts: TARP
Big Bank bailouts: ZIRP
Auto Maker bailouts: Cash for Clunkers
Bond Market bailouts: QE
MIC bailouts: Every war starting with Vietnam

If you are even somewhat connected to DC, you are immune to failure!

I have been pondering the future of the US Dollar.
I wish to expand my prediction for it beyond my “Port Royal” scenario.
It seems Russia and China are going to crowd us out of the MENA, and probably Europe too.
Now what options do we have to prop up the US Dollar?

Perhaps as Central and South American Nations descend into failed states with wheelbarrow currencies, the door will open for all of them to “Dollarization”.
Ecuador is already on board with this.
A great opportunity for the Deep State to increase their control over the entire Western Hemisphere. With shorter supply lines for our Nation Building Warrior Heroes!

Oh well, that is my prognostication, for what it is worth!

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.
