Tidal Wave of Easy Money About to Crest?


When the S&Ps took a bold leap on December 26 after plummeting 500 points earlier in the month, few could have imagined what would happen next. It were as though, missing an arm and a leg, a soldier had vaulted from a trench in the heat of the Battle of the Somme and shouted “Vive la France!” In the movie, the soldier is dead before he stumbles and hits the ground. But on Wall Street, U.S. stocks were just beginning their most powerful rally ever. The S&P 500 Index has risen 600 points and is closing fast on the record 2941 recorded in September.

The wilding spree has been duplicated in stock exchanges around the world even though global growth is slowing. This shows the irresistible power of central bank stimulus, but also the irrationality of the result. Something’s got to give, and it seems unlikely that the necessary  adjustment will come via a huge surge in corporate earnings. Even so, easy credit, aggressive share buybacks and force of habit will continue to fuel stocks until the money runs out. Since no one can say any longer what, exactly, counts as money, it is impossible to estimate when this will occur. The charts are also silent on the question of how high. But gut instinct says we are close to an important top, even if ten years from now it turns out not to have been THE Top.

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.
