Midterm Results Trigger a Bullish Frenzy, but Why?


When I projected a 549-point Dow rally here Tuesday night, I wasn’t expecting it to unfold in a single day. The actual gain was 545 points, an exuberant reaction to a midterm election that will split power on Capitol hill between the two parties. The rally left the Industrial Average exactly 771  points shy of the record-high 26961 achieved on October 3, but I’d need odds to bet that it won’t be reached. If so, and the blue chip average makes a presumably marginal new high, we should look for ways to get short, since many factors weighing on the stock market before the election will still be present. They include a strong dollar that will hurt the earnings of multinationals, an incipient collapse in residential real estate, rising interest rates and corporate earnings that may have peaked. In addition, any further gains from pro-business legislation on Capitol Hill are unlikely, since Trump’s legislative agenda will be stymied by a House now ruled by anti-business Democrats. Under the circumstances, Wall Street’s celebration could prove to be short-lived.

Midterm Results Trigger a Bullish Frenzy, but Why? —

Maybe because of the upcoming gridlock between the Democrat House vs Republican Senate. While the former won’t ever pass any MAGA legislation, the Senate won’t be approving any of their super-mega-socialist BS, either.

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.
