Volatility Measure Close to a Bearish Turning Point


The stock market’s masters have zeroed in on a few stocks to help foster the illusion that the aging bull is in excellent health. If you’ve been watching the shares of Boeing, AAPL and Tesla in particular you could get the impression buyers are unstoppable.  With cyclical forces powerfully supporting the uptrend at the moment, the Masters of the Universe are training much of their firepower on hard cases that have gotten bad publicity in recent months. Any gains in these stocks is effectively being banked against their next downturn, when investors will shed their amnesia and suddenly remember all of the bad news. If there is evidence the buying spree is near an end, however, it can be found most easily in the chart of VXXB, an S&P volatility index that is close to an important downside target at 24.50. If there’s a sharp bounce from that number as we should expect, then an important top in the stock market is close.

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.
