TSLA – Tesla Motors (Last:285.86)


Having narrowly missed a longstanding downside target at 251.28 at the low of its most recent swoon, TSLA would trip a ‘counterintuitive’ buy signal if it hits the green line at 286.19. That would make p=317.91 our minimum upside target, with a shot at 381.36 if Tesla’s peerless hype machine turns news temporarily in the firm’s favor. Not bad for a company with enough problems to make a bankruptcy scenario seem at least plausible. Whatever the case against Tesla, its compromised delivery system and its apparent decline in quality control, these factors could soon take a back seat to the shenanigans and spin control that have always moved the stock, often wildly. _____ UPDATE (Apr 2, 4:10 p.m.): The stock has touched 286.19, putting a midpoint Hidden Pivot resistance at 317.91 in play as a minimum upside target.  It would become an odds-on bet to be reached if TSLA can exceed a 295.39 ‘external’ peak recorded on March 14. _______ UPDATE (APR 4, 11:07 a.m.): Today’s plunge on news that Q1 deliveries of Model 3 fell well shy of expectations has hit $260, a $61 loss. The bullish ‘CI’ trade noted above, however, with a minimum target of 317.91, will remain in effect until such time as 254.46 is exceeded to the downside. This will be a good test of whether the sleazebags who manipulate this stock for a living are clever enough and strong enough to turn this morning’s air pocket into an accumulation opportunity. In the meantime, we should presume that the stock’s low near $260 occurred simply because the aforementioned sleazebags felt quite comfortable buying there.

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.
