FAANG Stocks Finally Lose Their Cool


The aging bull market has grown much more difficult to handicap now that the FAANG stocks have lost their cool. Two of them, NFLX and FB, got slammed last week on news suggesting that subscriber growth was weakening. Then, on Friday, AMZN reversed a rally sharply, unable to hold gains following an upbeat earnings report the day before. What’s a portfolio manager to do when he or she can no longer throw money at a bare handful of stocks in order to make outrageous returns? We may be about to find out, since betting everything on the FAANGs and letting it ride no longer seems to be a sure thing.

Yes, the FANG stocks are getting a little long in the tooth!
And on the Currency War front, it seems the Death of the Dollar has been greatly exaggerated!
Specifically, Venezuela and Iran can’t get enough of those Dollars!
And Gold and Silver are looking kind of weak also.

Finally, a 120 acre vacant hill top lot in 90210 is being offered at a cool one billion of those Dollars.
The property has 360 degrees of great views for sure, but it reminds me of the Khe Sahn firebase for some for some reason!

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.
