Too Much Bad News Could Be Good News


AAPL is getting hosed in after-hours trading on news that the company had lowered its sales estimate for Q1. The economic slowdown in China that has caused this is bound to persist and grow worse, but my gut feeling is that Apple shares have taken enough pounding lately to be ready to rally on bad news. In the touts section I’ve suggested a couple of way to play it, using ‘mechanical’ set-ups in either AMZN or the E-Mini S&Ps. Both have high initial risk, but you may be able to cut it down to size by substituting a ‘camouflage’ entry in either. There’s always call options in AAPL itself, or in any other vehicle, but you’ll have to wait till morning if you decide to play it that way.

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, June 11. Click below to register or get more information.
