ESU19 – Sep E-Mini S&P (Last:3014.25)


Minor and middling Hidden Pivot targets have shown little resistance to the rally, which has gained a steady 15-20 points a day mostly due to short-covering, low volume and the absence of dedicated sellers. Most immediately there is the 3012.50 target we’ve been using to keep us comfortably aligned with the trend. I still expect it to show some stopping power, but don’t be shocked if it doesn’t. Short there with a tight stop-loss, provided you’ve made money on the way to it. Above this ‘hidden resistance’ sits another target broached here earlier, an ambitious one at 3114.50. Like virtually every other major or minor rally target we’ve used over the years, it must be reckoned a shoe-in to be reached. But based purely on the look of the chart and the very labored penetration of the 2923 midpoint pivot, it would appear that an ascent to 3114.50 is not quite a done deal._______ UPDATE (Jul 10, 9:23 p.m. ET): The futures popped to a marginal new high at 3007.50, five points shy of our target. The shallow correction since suggests it will be reached soon, but any higher would put another at 3051.75 in play. (60-min, A= 2917.75 on 6/27). _______ UPDATE (Jul 14, 5:30 p.m.): The futures spent a remarkably boring Friday head-butting the 3012.50 target before short covering drove the September contract to close two points above it. This means the uptrend is likely to continue — most immediately to at least 3029.75, the secondary pivot associated with the 3151.75 target.

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.
