The screws are tightening

EST

The 10 year treasury hit 3% today and 2 year treasuries haven’t been this high since back in 2008.  Is the 5,000 year low in rates behind us? Let’s just say I don’t think we’ll see these lows again in my lifetime. If you are considering selling your house this could be your last chance as once the bonds start to collapse rates can double very quickly.

The DOW had a light volume day but it did refresh its bullish impulse leg on the hourly.  According to the SEC there is over $3 trillion sitting in money market funds. You can be sure this money will be waiting to jump in when the markets end their consolidation and decides to make its next move.

Jim – I hope you are Rick are right… that the 34+ year bull market in Bonds will continue. The Pension funds need 8% just to break even and these crazy low rates are bankrupting those pensions.

Well Dave, the Federal Government has a big Ace up their sleeves as far as interest rates on their T paper goes!
They could always make their interest “Tax Free” from your Federal Income Tax!
That action would royally screw the Muni Bond Market, but, most of that Muni Paper is already worthless in reality!
My guess any “Tax Free” T Paper would carry an interest rate 30% less what they are paying now.
Great stop gap move before they hit the Federal Reserve Bank owners with a massive RICO indictment and turn a 20 Trillion minus to a 20 Trillion Plus!
I am certain the Plebs would cheer that idea!
Call that a “Romanov Moment”!
The more wealth the top 1% gathers, the more obvious the “Solution” will become!
LOL!

I think there’s a better chance Keebler Elves show up at your doorstep tomorrow morning with a pot of gold than there is of the private shareholders of the private Federal Reserve getting charged with a crime.

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, November 13. Click below to register or get more information.
