Almost a Heckuva a Short Squeeze

EST

Every dog has its day, and Tuesday’s vicious short squeeze was a pooch-lover’s delight. DaBoyz even managed to goose Tesla for a 9% gain. Although that won’t be nearly enough to reverse the death spiral in the automaker’s shares, it will suffice to spook traders who have been shorting the stock with impunity for the last couple of months. Scandal-plagued Boeing was a relatively modest gainer among the institutionally rigged stocks, tacking on 1.67%. But Netflix, a global powerhouse in TV, was up nearly 6%, while would-be competitor AAPL rose 4.11% for its best one-day gain in more than a month. Lyft and Uber, two dead ducks, went their separate ways, with the former shedding 0.66%, the latter gaining 3.15%. Go figure! To borrow a line from the late Sen. Everett Dirksen, a few points here, a few points there, and pretty soon you’re talking about a real rally. This is not one yet, not by a longshot, but if the vise grip on shorts’ cahones gets any tighter, it could be one heckuva short squeeze by week’s end.

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, October 15. Click below to register or get more information.
