Stock-Market Bellwether AAPL Is on a Tear


AAPL, a key stock market bellwether, has been on a tear this week and tripped a buy signal on Tuesday at 153.36. It will face crucial resistance at 157.57, and, depending on how well buyers do when they take on this midpoint Hidden Pivot, we could see reliable evidence that they intend on pushing the stock as high as 165.97, which would be a new record.

With a cash stash of 261 billion dollars, Apple is the one stock with a climbing price that makes old school financial sense.
Marty Zweig kind of sense, God rest his soul.

You have to hand it to Apple, they have a cult like following willing to pay whatever price Apple throws out there!
Personally, I love ebay refurbished desktops and laptops for $100 a piece.
I bought an Acer Chrome book for $100 five years ago, and it never lets me down!
I just replaced the battery for $12, no tax, free shipping from ebay!
But that’s just the Connnecticut Yankee in me!

God bless Apple, thay sure seem like the real deal, which is refreshing in this day and age!

Something…truly wrong today.

Rapone’s Twitter handle is “Punk Proletarian,” under the name “Commie Bebop.” Law Newz verified that this is reportedly Rapone’s account, and said Rapone was in the field until Friday and unable to answer detailed questions.

The U.S. Army Public Affairs Office did not respond to an inquiry before press time about Rapone and the photos he posted.

Rapone also posted a second photo of himself in uniform, and he is seen wearing a Che Guevara T-shirt underneath his jacket. Guevara was an Argentine Marxist revolutionary who believed the poor people of Latin America would be saved by communism.

Communism is a political theory penned by Karl Marx that advocates class war and a society where the lower class would revolt and take down the upper class, destroying capitalism and bringing about socio-economic emancipation where all property is publicly owned and people are paid based on their skills and needs.

Today we are seeing inharmonious action in breathe towards the downside in the advance decline process. This is taking place near and at the +600 failure swing level in the Ratio Adjusted MSI, along with the raw MSI being near the +3000 level.

This is suggesting that weak breathe is confirming that liquidity is leaving the equity market.

Important 7 year cycles are in play at the 09282017 date, the range of trading days can be as much as 8-12 trading days on each side.

This high will be an important high, and could meet latter on with a same high or slightly higher high.

To confirm that we are moving towards this major high we must have the 4% rule come into play, as the major indexes moving in 5-7 trading days from high to low by 4% in price.

This will place the market ‘in the turn’, closing the quarter at the highs and coming into October as the spike or top within the 1st week is the alerted time frame.

The high itself may have a decline of 10-15% in a 4-6 week time frame.

This will confirm that the ‘barn door is open’ towards volatility and the turn has begun in earnest, as the MSI moves towards zero and creates a ‘sell capitulation signal’.

This inharmonious action in breathe today is an internal flag that the market ‘is capped’.

Inverse markets:


These markets should be carefully observe to restart their upward trends.
DX lower.

Observing the collapsing NFI under zero on a all time high day for the SPX suggests looking for a major turn is in order.

A major turn in the stock market will bring GC down very fast, towards large support levels then GC will dislocate away from the equity markets.

The same with ZB/ZN, the inverse currency markets can move towards the recent trend upward from the turn itself.

Moving into the new quarter must be observe very carefully as the market is set for slingshot downward move in 2 times the recent points upward from the 08212017 low point (chart inserted). This date and level should be seen as a door hinge of sorts for the turning point.

Along with the breathe process in the RAMSI and Raw MSI readings the market can open its barn door and move towards a MSI ‘sell capitulation levels’, for a further and larger turn towards a bear market.

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, September 11. Click below to register or get more information.
