Can AMZN Overcome ‘Matt’s Curse’?


With AMZN caught in a nasty short-squeeze Monday, the broad averages had difficulty selling off despite the fact that buying enthusiasm was almost nil. I recently adjusted my bull-market target for AMZN when the stock exceeded an 1181.56 Hidden Pivot objective that had kept us confidently on the right side of the trend for the last several weeks.  The target  lies about 9% above current levels, but we should still be very cautious right now, since Monday’s high occurred almost precisely at a 1211 ‘secondary pivot’. When this occurs it puts a stock in jeopardy of succumbing to ‘Matt’s Curse’, a very bearish price formation that in this case could portend a selloff to below 931. Although this seems most unlikely, we’ll keep the yellow warning flag unfurled for another day or two just to be sure.

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, January 8. Click below to register or get more information.
