Ricks Picks

If You’re Looking for the Big Smackdown..


Stocks ratcheted higher Thursday, taunting bears to short each new peak as the day wore on. We tried once ourselves, using a 2721.50 target in the E-Mini S&Ps that in retrospect was probably a little too obvious. The eventual top occurred at 2725.00, but the shallow pullback that followed would make any bear nervous about trying again. Still, with $70 a barrel starting to look like support rather than resistance in the oil patch, bears shouldn’t give up hope that the global economy is headed for a smackdown.

Here’s an astute observer who agrees:  “Seneca,” who posts regularly at Rick’s Picks. “There are several triggers in place,” he wrote, “but mid-May we are going to see a larger shift that will combine all of them for lower equity pricing. This will confirm that the long bull market has been killed.” Nor will the bull’s death be subtle, he says. More like a “lighthouse beam” from afar. “America has had a great shift, and it [will be announced] very soon.” For starters, notes Seneca, we’re about to experience a 15% fall in the Dow Industrials that will bring the blue chip index close to a “cave-in” number. This is a good time, he says, to sit back and observe. And so we shall — with as much objectivity as we can bring to a waiting game that has grown more than a little tiresome.

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.
