Rebound Less Impressive Than It Seemed


As powerful as Friday’s rebound may have seemed, the Dow Industrials had not exceeded a single prior peak on the hourly chart when the dust settled. The rally will have to get past a second at 25185 to generate a bullish impulse leg on the chart shown, and to surpass Feb 1’s 26306 to equal that feat on the daily chart. We should tune out the hubris until this happens, but without waxing too skeptical about the possibility, since there is still enough violent energy in the markets to accomplish just about anything imaginable in the space of a single day.

One should observe .96755 JYP for a low in the INDU/SPX U.S. share market.

From this base JYP level, support will be in place and the unraveling to come not much latter.

Have a great day Rick.

The Dow high of 26684 produced a pretty big “failure gap” on the weekly chart, coupled with a 3,000 point drop is the coup d’etat moment for all those permabears and spells the end to this bull market. Most will not believe it and that is why we will see another large rally over the next 5 to 12 months, however do not be fooled for this is just the wind up pitch before the real selling begins. I see the DJIA somewhere in the neighborhood of 15,000 to 13,000 points by year end 2019.

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, March 5. Click below to register or get more information.
