One Small Step for a Privileged White Male?


The 50th anniversary of the moon landing gave Americans a chance to reflect on one of humankind’s greatest technological achievements. And yet, for all of the digital-age benefits the space program brought us, there are reasons to doubt that we could muster a consensus to continue exploring the solar system and outer space. Even the word “we” in this context is fraught with conflict, and still moreso Neil Armstrong’s “giant leap for mankind.” Is mankind capable of making such a leap again? Of course, anyone even posing such a question would be flogged in the public square for not using the gender-neutral “humankind”.

That, unfortunately, is the spirit of this age, and even if we could get past semantics and build a space ship capable of interplanetary travel, there are no guarantees we could find a crew with sufficiently diverse ethnic backgrounds and sexual preferences to get the vessel off the launching pad. In a recent essay online, Daniel Greenfield skewered those who would inhibit America’s can-do spirit with tendentious concerns over political correctness, climate change and all the rest. “Fifty years ago, a nation that we now know was racist, didn’t care about the environment and drank too much soda, landed on the moon,” he notes.

“Fifty years ago, a nation that we now know was racist, didn’t care about the environment and drank too much soda, landed on the moon.”

And a nation that was a lot more Christian — including Buzz Aldrin, who took communion on the moon.

(after sleeping on this, and a few hours of thought)

I think we won’t be going back to the moon, let alone Mars, this side of the Second Coming. Until then, all these moments will be lost, in time. Like tears in rain.

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.
