Prepare for consolidation and confusion


The DOW remains in a broad trading channel currently ranging between 28,000 on the top and as low as 18,000 on the bottom side. Consider bonds are 10 to 1 in size compared to equities globally.  Just a small amount of money coming out of bonds will blow the stock market through the roof.  How can the stock market rise with rising interest rates? Remember, interest rates always rise in a bull market and drop in a bear market.  Interest rates have even been taken into the negative just to support a bear market. So we could certainly see rising interest rates and rising equity markets together in the coming years.

The talking heads are going to talk this market down by claiming rising rates are bad for the stock market. This will set up the consolidation period we need to base before we lift off as shorts pile on and will need to cover thus providing the fuel needed to take this market to the next level.  This bull market will not end until the retail/public have jumped in and so far we have no sign of that. A dollar rally is still in play so we could have what appears to be a flat equity market but foreigners will see the DOW rally in their currency. A stronger dollar will attract foreign capital into the U.S. markets and foreigners will not be as confused by rising rates as investors in the U.S. will be from television propaganda. This bull market will not end until DOW 40k and possibly higher.

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.
