Bears Do Their Bit to Keep Stocks Buoyant


As expected, the Dow blew past the upper threshold of the wedge formation pictured here Friday, gapping well above it on the opening bar. We’d predicted a 250-point surge, but the Indoos did a little better, gaining 306 points at the intraday high. This price action confirms what we already knew — i.e., that stocks are incapable of leaping higher unless powered by the kind of short covering that usually turns up in the first few seconds of the day, if at all. What was interesting about Friday’s rally is that it didn’t sputter out and  reverse within minutes. Instead, buyers kept at it for the next hour, peaking at around 10:50 a.m. This strongly suggests they’ll be back when the new week begins, even if unlikely to tip their hand right away, as they tend to do on Fridays.

I wonder why Trump is playing games with Pelosi over the State of the Union Address.

It makes him look weak and indecisive.

He does not need to make a long, boring speech and get booed by the Democrats on national television.

He can just release it in a written statement like this one.

Or better yet, in one of his “Tweets!”

“If you love Open Borders, Free Trade,and the Welfare Culture, then the State of the Union is just grand!”
“If you think that Open Borders, Free Trade and the Welfare Culture have been destroying this country for the past fifty years then the State of the Union is just horrible.”

It really is just that simple!

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.
