Ten-Year Note Exceeds a Crucial Threshold


Yields on the Ten-Year Treasury Note pierced a crucial resistance at 2.57% Wednesday, setting them on a possible course to as high as 3.11% in the months ahead. If so, the U.S. economic recovery, such as it is, will be operating under a new set of rules and bucking serious headwinds. Those winds would become even more daunting as higher long-term rates back up into the short end of the yield curve. The effect is unlikely to be felt any time soon, but it is something to consider if you’ve been banking on Dow 30,000. The U.S. economy has become wholly dependent on easy credit, and so a turn of the screw that marginally increases the throw-weight of the Fed’s perfunctory, now-and-again 25-basis-point rate hikes could conceivably prove fatal.

Market calls from very large investors are always problematic. This one way out in the open may be the end of an era for the person himself.

The new FED chair most concerning observation is the wide ‘spread’ in his own ‘net worth’ signaling a major red flag.

The changes again are in place and it may be a very silent FED by way of the leaders own quiet ways caring more about the FED’s dress code than propaganda.

The very wealthy are at odds, this is not a good thing, the New York City meeting early in the year with billionaires and about depopulation is a major concern more so than the movement in interest rates.

Have a great day today Rick!

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.
