‘Bear Market: The Movie!’


If they ever make such a film, Andy Warhol’s Empire could serve as an artistic model.  A cult classic that is seldom if ever screened outside of the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Empire runs slightly longer than eight hours. Every thrill-packed moment of it is devoted to a static image of the Empire State Building on a sultry night back in July 1964. The film was shot at 24 frames per second over 6.5 hours, but it is projected in slow motion at 16 frames per second, presumably so that moviegoers dosed with LSD can synchronize their brains to the ‘action’ on-screen, such as it is.

‘Bear Market: The Movie!’ would make Empire look like a cinematic luge ride in comparison — especially on days like Thursday, when the Dow Industrials traversed more than 1100 points up and down, only to achieve a net gain for the day of five points.

Summiting Everest in Minutes

How would the day look on film if ‘Bear Market: The Movie‘ were accelerated a thousand-fold? The entire swoon would play out in under 15 seconds. Imagine watching a documentary about mountaineers summiting Mt. Everest and returning to base. This usually take about a month. But projected in digital-video hyperdrive, the whole expedition would consume less than ten minutes. At that speed, mountain climbers shot from a distance might look little different from price-bar squiggles on a stock chart.

Unfortunately, there is no accelerating our way through a bear market. If we are in one now, it’s going to be a painful and seemingly interminable slog — one that features many gratuitous price swings like Thursday’s. At the end of it, investors will have no more appetite for stocks than moviegoers would for reruns of Empire.

Oh Rick & friends, have you focused too long on the trees & missed the forest? Were my few wise words lost on you?? Have you been asleep all this time?
What has the biggest effect on an economy & should show the direction of one’s investments strategy?….. -government & it’s purposes.
I have oft enough said that “Babylon the great” is the “Empire of the city”, aka the Bankster cartel, satanic deep state, shadow government, military industrial complex, ……amongst other names people have for them which I refrain from stating out of courtesy to this site!!…but well deserved for these scum!!!!!!
Well, dear friends,from my calculations it sure looks like she’s finally going down!….at the hands of this disruptive phenomenon, President Trump! It’s just a matter of time, from what I can see.
What happens when you take away the overiding influence of the Rothschild central banking debt empire is open to discussion, but the effects will change things just a wee little bit, methinks!

Research “Qanon” to get the gist of what the hell I’m on about & give it some deep consideration before you’re too late to grab a chair.

…got physical, not debt based PM’s?….maybe crypto’s??…..anyone??

….& let’s all pray Trump succeeds in bringing down these psychopathic, satanic peodophile perpetual debt pedlars once & for all!

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.
