2.89-Point Dow Rally Was No Small Feat


Give DaBoyz credit for levitating the Dow by 2.89 points on Tuesday. That may seem like a pittance, but it was actually quite a feat for them to eke out a small gain with the price of crude head-butting the psychologically crucial $70 level. Although there is room to disagree about how much higher oil prices might go this time around, no one doubts that anything above $70 is going to put a serious drag on the U.S. economy.  Trump’s decision to jettison the nuclear deal with Iran could add 15 to 25 cents a gallon at the pump, the news media are telling us. Don’t these guys ever learn?  Merely talking about a 25-cent increase ‘over time’ all but guarantees it will happen more or less overnight. A 75-cent spike by mid-June sounds more likely.  If so, don’t be surprised if the Dow is trading 2000 points lower than the current 24,360.

An increase in the supply of money [and credit] depends mainly upon borrowing. Unless the psychology of the American consumer can be turned around, consumers will not start new borrowing that will create more new money. Until consumers start to demand more and buy more, business will not expand more. Therefore business will not borrow more. Therefore, in spite of the great increase in the money supply caused by the Federal deficits, the total money supply will continue to shrink. As it shrinks it will bring about bankruptcies, and these bankruptcies will cause others, which will end in a great domino display of deflation. The destruction of money will far outpace the manufacture of money by the Fed, and the plunge starts.

The only sound monetary system is a voluntary one.

Free societies are more successful and productive than controlled ones.

There are two ways that credit can be liquidated, self liquidation and force liquidation.

When a stock market downturn speeds up the wealthy are hit first.

The TIDAL WAVE is about crest.

Have a fine day 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, March 5. Click below to register or get more information.
