Ricks Picks

Please Welcome David Isham!


With surgery and an indeterminate recovery period just ahead, I’ve given my colleague David Isham (EYE-sham) free rein to speak his mind here in my absence (which I hope will be brief). I was somewhat startled to see that, in his first Morning Line at-bat here yesterday, he boldly predicted that the Dow Industrials would hit 40,000 before the bull market ends. Considering how skeptical I am toward a stock market that has been pumped full of steroids by the Fed, readers might ask whether Rick’s Picks is sending out mixed messages. My suggestion is to keep an open mind toward any and all possibilities.  Although I could (and often do) give you a dozen good reasons why the Dow should be trading at half its current price, I cannot offer any guarantees that it won’t hit 40,000 first.  As unlikely as this seems to me, it’s a scenario that neither I nor any of my fellow permabears can afford to ignore.

David will also be putting out some actionable trading touts in the week ahead. He has been a Rick’s Picks subscriber since the beginning — which is to say, for long enough to develop a distinctive style of his own. I hope you enjoy his work as much as I do. He brings a level of sophistication and imagination to chart-reading that could change the way you play the game.

Hope you become well and full speed soon.

Opinions are good, and as you say all welcome.

Get ready you are in ‘the plunge’ more than any and many could not have a sense to the fact for the next 6-7 years ahead ‘dead ahead’ an American and World upheaval like never before.

A dull congested market ahead, dont bet on it, here we go!

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.
