Tweet Exhaustion


The tweet-driven stock market has exhausted my patience, as I am sure it has yours. Expect a short-covering rally lasting perhaps a day or if and when Xi and Trump shake hands on a face-saving deal. The rally that ensues will be as phony as the deal itself, and that’s why we should view it as a great opportunity to get short. The news media will pretend something has happened, celebrating nothing so much as their own ability to invent a story where there is none. Don’t buy any of it. If the agreement has any value at all, which is doubtful, it will lie in the extent to which it reduces Beijing’s ability to coerce U.S. companies to give away the store technology-wise if they want to do business in China. How many Dow points would that be worth? Answer: Not many. [Note: Rick is on holiday but will be updating these commentaries as warranted. Check back daily for new developments.]

The Fed Shouldn’t Enable Donald Trump
The central bank should refuse to play along with an economic disaster in the making.

By Bill Dudley
August 27, 2019, 6:00 AM EDT

This action: is ‘Hammer Time’ and its going to be bigger and larger in scope than many think as of now. Look INDU 22,750.00 1st support.

Prices will revere just how bad it will be, as an ever increasing downward spiral is created.

The FED may be just falling into a political trap played by Trump.

…Or, just maybe both get what they wanted, as in life “we all get what we want.”

August is on track to be the fifth month of the year in which insider selling tops $10 billion. The only other times that has happened was 2006 and 2007, the period before the last bear market in stocks, Trim Tabs said.

Have a great day 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.
