Ricks Picks

The ‘Lunatic Stocks’ Have Probably Bottomed


Monday’s slow-motion selloff didn’t generate much fear, but it likely exhausted sellers for a while. Although I’ve put out a somewhat lower target in the E-Mini S&Ps for Tuesday, the big moves in the FAANGs appear to be over, or very nearly so. Rick’s Picks had been using a 1496 downside target in AMZN that came within a millimeter of catching the exact low of a so-far $68 bounce. (Click on the inset to see this graphically.) DaBoyz looked like they might want to revisit the low Monday evening, but they are going to have difficulty pushing the stock significantly beneath it, if even merely to it, since it’s such a clear and compelling Hidden Pivot support. Similarly, AAPL hit a longstanding downside target at 208.04 before trampolining more than $6 from just beneath it. A relapse is unlikely to exceed the low by much, if at all, and that’s why the issues I refer to as the ‘lunatic stocks’ — i.e., the ones most heavily owned by portfolio-managing chimpanzees — should be supportive of the broad averages over the near term.

The Most Hated Bull Market Ever is a media put up job, as it is just the opposite in knowing the stats that the pubic ‘is and has’ been all in for quite a few years. This is seen by House hold holding of restate and equities, and the all time cash levels in stock accounts.

The INDU in this short wave lower of 18-22 trading days has about 3% +/- from yesterdays low point on the table lower before a counter trend process.

Inverse markets as in 2000 and 2007 are the new investment field as they begin a very long climb upward over the next few years.

A more climaxed lower pricing event is dead ahead in the coming months even before year end.

Dates …..are important to observe.

DaBoyz…left the building a long time ago…just like Elvis..:)

Have a great day 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.
