A Jittery Standoff


Bulls and bears look to be in a state of jittery equilibrium, like two arm wrestlers unable to put the other down. The benefit of the doubt should go to the former, however, since the steep rally from December’s Marianas Trench has an unachieved Hidden Pivot target at 3095, basis the S&P 500 cash index.  That’s an 8.4% trek from these levels, and if it is achieved with the power of the buying binge we saw as 2019 began, we could be there by late July.

The SPX/INDU are looking lower a lot lower. The ‘low of last week’ will and is a basic towards increase volatility, which at 1st when hit seems to be a ‘buy point’ (or what is called a spring).

It will break hard towards the downside, sending markets towards the 10% support level.

There is a very small possible because of the deep technical sell off that had taken place, the markets could easy slide to the Xmas low in a day or so, though I see that as a extreme more than complete a normal wave lower.

Over all, it is very much ‘quite’ possible that the bear market ‘longer term’ had begun at this last high point.

Have a great day today Rick.

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.
