Ricks Picks

A Mixed Bag — of Explosives


Wednesday’s promising rally sputtered out around mid-day — a victim, as all rallies are, of its own excesses.  The Dow was up 380 points at the time, but this still fell about 140 points shy of a threshold where bulls would have been a good bet to recoup their recent, steep losses ahead of the weekend. They could surprise on Thursday with a short-squeeze exceeding 25,520. But that is more than 600 points above Thursday’s close and probably too much to ask, considering how fatigued buyers looked at Wednesday’s top. More likely in my estimation would be a drop of at least 400 points, to around 24423, before bulls begin to find traction.  Meanwhile, volatility ETFs looked primed for another spike. If stocks start to fall again with a vengeance, we can’t say we weren’t warned.

If you check the 120 min Dow chart,
you will notice that the Dow retraced to the 20 period Exp MA, to then continue lower…
This seem to tell that the next leg is just down and down!

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.
