Bitcoin’s Corpse Leaps from the Grave. But Why?

EST

Bitcoin’s sharp rally on Tuesday was being described by some as a ‘mystery surge’, but it is no mystery at all for anyone who has seen the film Night of the Living Dead. Buffs may recall that the movie’s flesh-eating zombies were activated by radioactive contamination from an exploding space probe that had visited Venus. Although no similar explosion has been reported by NASA, it seems entirely logical that some sort of cosmic contaminant affected the brains of traders, causing them to pay $900 more for Bitcoin than anyone had been willing to pay the day before.

On a chart (click on inset), the cryptocurrency looks like it sat on a Whoopee Cushion. Cosmic rays aside, another plausible explanation is that the imbeciles who bought into the rally simply forgot about myriad factors that have been weighing on bitcoin for the last 16 months, pushing it 75% beneath the December 2017 high of around $20,000. If a score of high-profile embezzlement and theft scandals weren’t enough to ward off thrill-seekers, the recent announcement that the Cboe, the first exchange to list bitcoin futures, plans to kill the contract after June should have slowed the action to a death crawl. Instead, we got enough of an effusion on Tuesday that more speculators could get sucked in over the next few days.  Some called the rally an April Fool’s joke. Indeed it was, no matter what its cause.

The Bitcoin rally makes me think that I should perhaps place the million shares of Erie Railroad stock my grandfather left me on the market!

Boss Tweed gave him a package deal on the Erie stock, plus a nice chunk of Brooklyn Bridge stock as well!
Just think of all the stock splits since 1871!

Just the thing for the underwater Chicago pension plans to enable them to return to solvency!

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.
