Which story reflects the REAL economy? Take your pick…


The feature pages  of Tuesday’s Wall Street Journal offered the usual jumble of economic contradictions. We read on Page One that losses for credit-card issuers are increasing, reversing a six-year trend.  This, the Journal notes dryly, could be “a warning sign for markets and the broader economy.”  Elsewhere in the newspaper, however, we read that business at Boeing has been gangbusters, including deals that will eventually total $290 billion with Indian airlines over the next 20 years. On the same page, another story purports to explain why oil prices recently settled, albeit briefly, above $50 a barrel. But wait: A glut of retail space in the grocery sector threatens to trigger a massive wave of store closures across the country. Which story best reflects the true state of the economy? Take your pick.

All media is own by a handful of persons in the recent 2 decades (about 400 outlets), its not the reported news to question but the ‘timing’ of it.

It is suggested that recently Trumps many stock market tweets are putting him into a strange position as accepting the current levels in pricing. Many see this as a negative towards him if something was to take place to the downside.

Just maybe ‘its a cover’ towards the ‘timing’ of such an event, in that all is working towards market pricing with him leading the game. Suggesting further that anything that runs this off course will be the blame and not he.

The DXY suggest ‘investment flow has exit the U.S.A.’ that its pricing is not leading to what is suggested below.

Again notice the timing:



Have you seen the markets lately? Company after company is announcing record investments in America by the billions of dollars and thousands of American jobs. Foxconn––a world leader in manufacturing for computers, communications, and consumer electronics – announced this week plans to build a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility for the production of LCD panel products in Wisconsin. This week’s announcement is just the latest vote of confidence in President Trump and his economic agenda. Under President Trump, America is back!

BA (Boeing) single stock has accounted for 206 of the Dow’s 291 point gain over the past week.

Hindenburg Omen has created a record having an 8th signal in the past 30 days.

DXY count now lies under its 90 year low point of 70.800 level in the 2008 year, that number is 57.100 as a major low point.

Along with a .76% prime rate count low point as we have CRB/10-Year Price = 176.28/100.34 = 1.76 a (very old indicator).

Over 4.40 = Hyperinflation
Between 3.60 and 4.40 = Inflation
Between 3.00 and 3.60 = Neutral;
Between 2.9 and 3.00 = Disinflation
Under 2.90 = Deflation

Great American Eclipse, as it will be visible in certain states, starting in Oregon and moving slightly diagonally east, ending in South Carolina. The last time we had an eclipse that was visible only in the United Sates was June 8, 1918.

Have a great day Rick.

As the United States continues to drift towards a bizarre combination of Feudalism, Fascism, and Stalinism Lite, it is no wonder we are all confused!

On the one hand we have our economy increasingly being controlled and looted by the SSMs.
State Sanctioned Monopolies!
Amazon, Walmart, Microsoft, you know the names and the players.

On the other hand we have 22 million Government workers, and tens of millions of citizens and corporations on some level of The Dole.

That leaves anyone on their own in the Private Sector slowly being Purged by Stalinism Lite!

The markets are just reflecting the increasing concentration of wealth in the SSMs.

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.
