Seldom Has the News Felt More Exhausting


The tempo of the news has grown increasingly frenetic lately, even to the point where a humdrum summit in Argentina for world leaders has taken on significance. Usually, the more high-powered the guest list at these affairs, the less likely they are to produce an outcome worthy of our attention. This time, however, the world seems riveted not only on what might happen when Trump and his trade nemesis Xi Jinping meet for dinner Saturday night, but on what will not happen now that the President has canceled a G20 meeting with Putin. By the time you read this, we’ll know whether there is going to be an immediate thaw in trade relations between the U.S. and China. Regardless, many Rick’s Picks subscribers were able to place a leveraged bet on a positive outcome. This I had advised in Friday’s commentary, which touted the possibility of a thousand-point rally in the Dow if Trump and Xi strike a deal. Although I still view this as unlikely, we were able to get enticing odds on the bet.

Pray for Comic Relief

It’s also possible the weekend will produce a temporary respite in the tariff war.  Although that would not be sufficient to stimulate a thousand-point rally on Monday, it would very likely be good for a gain of that size over the next several weeks. In the meantime, we can only pray for distraction, preferably comic, from impeachment cacophony and the snipe hunt of Robert Mueller, the Pied Piper of his day. Trump Derangement Syndrome has become literally relentless, making the news all but unwatchable for most Americans and exceeding our collective patience like no outbreak of mass hysteria in memory.

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, August 20. Click below to register or get more information.
