Bad News for 14 Million of Us


It’s probably just coincidence, but Facebook is the headliner in the latest social-media scandal sheet just as we were giving Zuckerberg & Company the benefit of the doubt (see the tout below). It would appear that the privacy of 14 million subscribers has been compromised due to the latest online SNAFU.  A software bug reportedly displayed their posts publicly even if they had intended to share them only with friends or a smaller audience.  Good thing Mom doesn’t have a Facebook account.  Trouble is, Mom does have an account and checks it hourly, since not having one in this day and age is akin to not having fingerprints. The glitch reportedly lasted for 10 days in May — enough time, presumably, to have caused at least a few of those affected some embarrassment if not their jobs. Facebook has begun notifying those who were outed, but probably not the old-fashioned way with a phone call. Can you imagine receiving such a call — from a human, that is? It would be a public relations coup for the offending company, but the time and effort required would be equivalent to solving the Tower of Brahma puzzle.

The man that took a selfie along with a train accident just recently ‘says it all’.

‘Change’ in any direction is very difficult for the masses, this one will not be any different.

“Having an excessive or erotic interest in oneself and one’s physical appearance”.or a ‘narcissistic’ is a place an extreme in any society. FB and the entire social media stocks are a reflection of what the world is today.

The road back from the extreme will have a field day with such towards value.


Have a great weekend Rick.

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.
