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 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, March 5. Click below to register or get more information.
