Democrats Should Be Careful What They Wish For


Election day at last! The results are certain to have a profound impact on investors’ outlook for the economy, although no one can predict with confidence how things are about to turn out. My gut feeling is that Republicans will win big, rebuking a mainstream media whose polls are just as fanciful as they were in 2016. Regardless, if it appears that Republicans have retained a majority in both houses, stocks will move higher — probably sharply so for at least the first couple of days. If the GOP holds only the Senate, stocks will fall, possibly hard; but if the Republicans lose the upper house, be prepared for the worst — i.e., the ‘Trump rally’ in reverse.

Scorched-Earth Policy

The Democrats have promised a scorched-earth policy that will make Sherman’s March through Georgia look like the hokey pokey. Even if they don’t impeach Trump, they’ll launch endless investigations as pointless, destructive and draining as the Mueller probe. The consequences for the U.S. economy, and for governance itself, would be so grave as to be almost unimaginable.  Indeed, the reason I believe Republicans will carry the day is that most voters deeply understand what a panoramic catastrophe it would be if the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters and Chuck Schumer are put back in charge. Even their supporters must know that a violent lurch to the left couldn’t possibly be good for the country — not that such thoughts will be on their vengeful minds when they pull the lever on Tuesday to vaporize Trump, his supporters and all they stand for.

Best comment I have read on the Election from a Republican point of view?

“97% of the dead vote Democrat!
What’s wrong with our dead!”

Best comment I have read on unhinged Democrat celebrities?

“Did you hear about the woman who had four ***holes?
Alec Baldwin’s mom!

Now that’s comedy!

If you look at the presidential elections, only three people EVER won 60%-63% of the popular vote – FDR, LBJ, and Richard Nixon. If you look at the winning votes, you will see that most are in the min 50% range. Less than 10% of the people are independent. The bulk of the people are predisposed Democrats or Republicans.

Have a great Election 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.
