Odds Improving for a Deal with China


We are going to find out soon whether Mr. Art of the Deal can bring China around on trade issues. It’s encouraging that Trump has already turned what had begun to look like a full-blown trade war with Europe into a success story for global business. However, it remains to be seen whether he can extract concessions from the hardball players in Beijing.  For the time being, the news media have ratcheted down their Trump Derangement Syndrome sufficiently to  report more honestly on what incorrigible scumbags the Chinese are in all things having to do with trade. We are dealing with one of the most corrupt governments on Earth, after all, and it is hardly unreasonable for Trump to demand that they show some respect for, at the very least, intellectual property.

The Next Big Rally

His odds of success have taken a favorable turn recently with the run on China’s currency and stock market.  Bears have been piling up bets against both, and it’s only a matter of time before the government is forced to do something about it. Up until now, official policy has been to allow the currency to drift lower in order to compensate for the effects of higher tariffs on Chinese goods. This strategy cannot work for long if at all, however, since Trump can raise tariffs quicker than China can devalue its currency.  Bottom line: Look for China to blink first.  If and when this happens, it’s going to kick the U.S. bull market into high gear.

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, April 23. Click below to register or get more information.
