What if Trump Brings North Korea Around?


Trump says behind-the-scenes efforts to entice North Korea into the community of nations have shown slow but steady progress. He allows that his personal relationship with Kim Jong Un has warmed, and that with the right incentives the dictator could conceivably come around.  This would be a tremendous coup for the President — an accomplishment so significant and praiseworthy that even his most hardened foes would find it difficult to criticize. The worst they could say is that we shouldn’t trust Mr. Kim. But so what?

Trump’s success would start to look even better as North Korea did what everyone knows it can do — i.e., lift itself from economic hell to become an industrial powerhouse like South Korea. Were this to happen, Trump’s legacy as a consequential president would be sealed.  China is in no mood at the moment to help bring the two sides together, but that could change. Meanwhile, Mr. Kim has asked the Pope to visit. This is a very peculiar request, considering that North Korea is one of the harshest environments in the world for Christianity. Even so, it’s hard to imagine a cynical purpose behind the request. Taken at face value, it can only suggest that North Korea is capable of surprising the world in a good way.

To have a General or President become ‘great or outstanding towards history’, the history that revolves around him must be ‘great and outstanding’.

Great and outstanding history is a place in time where ‘major’ shifts and changes take place for the entire world not one sector of it. Most times, actually all the times before its because of major warfare.

Trump does have some very interesting and great possibilities to fill the role, to become a ‘great’ Leader and President in history.

Have a great day Rick.

If President Trump manages to pull this off, he’ll not only be guaranteed another term — which is pretty much a given, at this point — but whoever he endorses in 2024 will also have it in the bag.

But North Korea is not the only point of victory. Trump is ultimately putting pressure on China — left (Iran), right (NK), and center (China itself). Something has to give because there’s a stranglehold on the whole thing. Highly unlikely, in my estimation, that nothing will happen! Just a matter of when…

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, June 11. Click below to register or get more information.
