ESH19 – March E-Mini S&P (Last:2695.25)


Like many of you, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the day when this powerful bear rally drops dead. Instead, AAPL has rallied with a vengeance, drawing a thousand doomed stocks into its vortex. Yes, the rally is a hoax. And yes, the Masters of the Universe have used it to distribute as much stock as possible into the hands of rubes, pensioners and widows.

Under the circumstances, I’ve been a reluctant bull all the way up, duty bound to follow the mechanical logic of my charts. However, the effort has worn me out, and that’s why I’ve selected the thumbnail chart today that I did (click on inset). It gives me the wherewithal to say that maybe, just maybe, the insidious promoters of the Big Bounce have breathed their last.

That Ominous Cough?

This is a logical inference, given that the E-Mini S&Ps have begun to roll down from a midpoint Hidden Pivot at 2732 where buyers were likely to cough ominously, if cough they have. The pattern itself is unfortunately not of the highest quality, and so I am prepared to see stocks come roaring back next week — led, of course, by AAPL, whose iPhone troubles have suspiciously melted away in recent weeks. If that is what happens, I hope you will pardon this digression. Think of it as a fleeting moment of sanity in a crazy world.

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.
