Where Are Freaked Out Bears When You Need Them?


AMZN and AAPL were both looking pretty subdued as 2018 ended, implying DaBoyz are not feeling so gutsy even though tax selling is out of the way. Merely bullish buying will always take a back seat to short-covering as a source power behind the rallies, but it remains to be seen whether there will be enough “good” news to panic bears. There were some border-wall stories on the tape that wouldn’t rate a yawn on Wall Street. But if the Dems crank up impeachment talk and their dirty-tricks squad to start the new year, it’s going to take a toll on stocks.

May 2016: Berkshire Hathaway Announces Stake in AAPL [9.8 million shares at $109.00 per share average / original value: $1.1 bln] — position
WB said, “I would buy all of it if I could”.

The recent low of AAPL is 146.59, 33% from that 109 buy in point of WB.

More important was the timing of 11/05/2018 of BRK gaping buy in at 212 level now trading at a recent 186 level low point.

The breaking of this 186 level low in the future is cause for a drop to the 100 level, and lower.

The very slow turn in market pricing brings concern towards those that just cannot hide.

As, mention William C. Durant of the 1930’s the man of the times as WB today.

The downward turn in the DXY market double and triple high point will be seen as bullish for the equity market, till its not.

2018 has the ending of 3 major market mania something quite never done in just 1 year of time before.

1) Bit coin
2) 10b-18 rule buy back rule.
3) Trump Low Valug broken, major stock market blow off.

Have a great day today 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.
