AAPL – Apple Computer (Last:174.24)


Buyers shut down to save energy as the week ended, but not before they’d muscled past a supply zone created in mid-December on the way down (see inset). Expect them to return in force once the news environment turns favorable again toward a wafting rally.  AAPL is being deftly manipulated higher on short-covering, but the news cycle is crucial to the effort. Under the circumstances, we might expect AAPL and the broad averages to go nowhere on Monday, usually a non-news day; then to start rising again when some pseudo-‘real’ news begins to dribble out on Tuesday. AAPL has the potential to hit 178.00 on the next burst, but  it will need to push above the 184.94 peak recorded on December 3 to fool the herd into thinking new all-time highs are actually possible. _______ UPDATE (Feb 13, 5:13 p.m.): AAPL feels leaden, the moreso because the dirtballs who manipulate it for a living opened it on the high of the day, making fools of buyers. They will remember this, at least for a short while, adding an extra layer of supply the next time DaBoyz attempt to goose the stock._______ UPDATE (Feb 14, 5:34): Zzzzzzz. AAPL went nowhere — including down, which I read as slightly bullish. _______ UPDATE (Feb 25, 6.09 p.m.): The stock’s canny handlers gapped it past the 173.24 midpoint pivot of the pattern projecting to 178.06, making a run-up to that number practically a sure thing.

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.
