Gold at a Key Threshold


Comex Gold is sharply on the move tonight, approaching a key rally resistance. The August contract has slightly exceeded a longstanding Hidden Pivot target at 1412.20, but corresponding targets in some popular bullion vehicles, including GDX, have yet to be reached. If this occurs on Friday’s opening bar, you should be wary of a bull trap.

The GC market as well as the INDU/SPX markets are at the most violent time price areas of 40-60 trading days from major highs or lows.

These areas are associated with large moves in pricing.

GC’s break out of the quarterly time frame on 04/2018 (a closing quarterly time frame) move the markets towards at the minimum +50-70% target level from the current ‘inverse’ relationship to INDU/SPX topping patterns.

This would be about the GC 2039.8 level in the weeks and months ahead.

This also suggest we are rolling over ‘big time’, starting a Bush (43) 2.0 version type of fall in stock prices.

Observing a 6-8k level in INDU over the coming election cycle is on target.

Trump Low’s are broken ‘again’, the interest rate level from the 11/06/2016 Trump Low was hit, along with the recent $VALUG Index Trump Low busted ‘wide open’. $VALUG is the ‘only’ real market valued index that pricing is related towards actual profit and loss of wealth.


Trump stages his greatest show yet
The president’s elaborate reelection rally in Florida featured thousands of adoring supporters.

On October 29, 2011 Paterno wins his 409th game as head coach of the Penn State Nittany Lions football team. During 61 years at Penn State University, he helped the former “cow college” quintuple its financial endowment and build Paterno Library. At the age of 84, Paterno is so beloved as “a coach, an educator, and a humanitarian” that a statue is outside Beaver Stadium, and so powerful that when university president Graham Spanier and athletic director Tim Curley asked Paterno to retire in 2005, he refused. Inside the stadium, Spanier, Curley, and vice president Gary Schultz worry about a grand jury investigating accusations of child sexual abuse against Jerry Sandusky, a retired assistant coach.
From his 409th win ‘the high point of his life’, it took only 3-4 weeks to losing all he had work for.

Have a great weekend 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.

The next webinar will be held on Tuesday, August 20. Click below to register or get more information.
