What Are These Men Thinking?


Hard as it would have been to imagine just a few years ago, we now have a photo of a U.S. President shaking hands with a North Korean dictator — and not just any dictator, but perhaps the looniest one the world has tolerated going back a few Kims. The picture above, courtesy of Fox News, ranks right up there with Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon: Incredible.  Those cursed to live out the remainder of their lives suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome may have been disappointed that the President, on meeting his most off-the-wall adversary, didn’t try to high-five the guy.  If he had, and Kim Jong Un had returned the gesture with soulful aplomb, punctuating it perhaps with a sharp fist-pump, the deal would already be sealed and Mr. Kim’s personal assistant would be making arrangements for his first Superbowl visit.

A ‘Bad’ Deal Is Extremely Unlikely

As things stand, we can only speculate on whether the chubby guy with the weird haircut has come to Singapore in good faith. We already know why Trump is there, and even TDS sufferers could not deny that his main purpose is to make a deal. Neither could they deny that a ‘bad’ deal for the West is extremely unlikely — not with Trump negotiating our end of it. Some TDS-afflicted commentators are apparently worried that Trump will limit North Korea’s throw weight in a way that prevents (in theory) an attack on the U.S. while leaving South Korea, Japan and our other Asian allies vulnerable.  I’m laying 5-to-1 that no such deal will be made.  Whatever happens, each man will take the measure of the other. We can choose either to be comforted by that…or not.

The Communist are the Masters of Deceit.

No deal since the rise of communism from Lincoln’s time has ever taken place, this will be the same they the communism ‘are’… ‘the long game’.

They ‘are’ Masters…of Deceit.

This over populated part of the planet is in dire straits, as it now has over 1/2 of the worlds population fighting for the scraps that are simply not there.

America needs to look good for what is ahead, we must do every thing possible for the name of peace and goodwill.

Have a great day Rick.

After the genocidal attacks on Iraq, Libya, Syria, etc. which cost the US trillions of dollars and the lives of tens of thousands on both sides and produced nothing but Mad Max…………..
It is refreshing to see a POTUS who can finally talk things over instead of mindlessly resorting to the usual MIC tactic of “Arc Light”.
Who, knows, it might actually calm things down enough for an eventual re-unification of the two Koreas!
Much to the dismay of the McCain types in DC.
Perhaps there is at least some method to the madness of POTUS Trump!

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, August 20. Click below to register or get more information.
