Benefits of the Mechanical Trade System…

Dear fellow Trader,

If you’ve been cynical of the market like me, or are fed up with the ups and downs of your portfolio…

I promise to show you a clear and proven trading system that can…

  • Generate income safely, simply and steadily for as long as you live
  • You don’t need to have any previous experience
  • You don’t need to be a math wiz – I’m certainly not
  • You don’t need a lot of time – just an hour a day

That’s right! Within just 30 days, you’ll be up and making trades that generate enough to replace your income within just 60 to 90 minutes a day!

This is game-changing news for you because among 16,000 workers and retirees surveyed from 15 countries in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia, only 36 percent reported that they are very confident they will be able to retire comfortably.

Globally, that share drops to 29 percent, according to a new report shared on aarp.com. Those stats were taken before the markets were decimated by this global pandemic that caused ‘The Great Shutdown’.

It’s sad to know that so many people work most of their lives and get to a place where they should be able to enjoy life, but can’t!

Than NEVER has to be YOU with strategies like I reveal!

“I had $24,500.00 in my IRA and I now have about $34,500.00 ! What can I say? I’m amazed by your uncanny ability to see stock moves. To put it simply, ‘Boy, I’m glad you’re on my side’!”
Mike Boschma
At-home trader

The trick is to accurately and consistently read those chart ticks so that you’ll be ahead of the curve – knowing what the market is going to do – with a certainty that shames the so-called experts.

You’ll find out how you’ll be able to do this with zero previous experience, but first…

Who is Rick Ackerman?

You’re probably wondering, right off the bat, “Who is this guy?” and “Is he blowing smoke with his promises?”

I’m the editor and publisher of Rick’s Picks, an online service for traders from novice to expert level. I’ve been trading for more than 40 years, a dozen of them as an options market-maker on the floor of the Pacific Stock Exchange.

My work has been featured by CNBC and Bloomberg, and I’ve written on the markets and the economy for numerous publications, including Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities, Barron’s, Stocks, Futures & Options magazine, and The San Francisco Examiner.

A headline in Barron’s labeled me an “intrepid trader” after I helped the FBI solve a notorious pill-tampering case. I received a $200,000 reward and a guest appearance on “FBI: The Untold Story.” An epic party in San Francisco Bay celebrated the event.

In the trading world, I’m known for the unusual accuracy of my price predictions and for the Hidden Pivot Method I use to trade and forecast. My provocative insights and timely trading calls have made me a frequent guest on shows hosted by Max Keiser, Greg Hunter, Corey Fleck and Jim Goddard, among others.

My thoughts on the markets and the headlines have also been featured on ZeroHedge, Seeking Alpha, Benzinga, The Daily Reckoning, FX Street, Financial Survival Network, Crush the Street, Jory Capital, Howe Street, Gold-Eagle, GoldSeek, 321Gold and Kitco.

Now that you know that I’m the real deal, I’ve got a question myself…

What Happened to Our ‘Nest Eggs’

About every 10 years it appears that the stock market will crash for some reason or another. In 2008, we experienced the Great Recession, which was history making. Now, here again in just a decade later, ‘The Great Pause’ – which may cause an extremely volatile effect in the markets for the next two years.

That’s a Serious Problem!

If you want to generate steady returns and make portfolio income and all you know is buy low, sell high…you may have better luck on the black jack table in Vegas!

In other words, that’s not gonna cut it.

And you also don’t need to waste your time and money betting on fly-by-night ‘opportunities’ such as investing in gold, franchise business ideas, and other schemes that will cost a fortune and leave you either broke…busy…frustrated or all of the above.

That’s why I’m revealing one of my best trading strategies that has worked for me and thousands of students, for decades, to generate income regardless of market downturns. I hate claims of a “silver bullet” solution. Rather, I teach you a proven, step-by-step method you can learn for yourself.

“As a retired CTA I have never seen anything as prescient as your Black Box Forecasts. It’s like having a crystal ball. On my very first trade with you (September 14), the long bond had closed at 112.28. You advised that they would sink to ‘exactly 112.16.’ Your instructions were to bid 112.17, risk just eight ticks, and then to hold to a 113.17 objective.

I entered the entire trade before the open, and like magic the low was hit shortly after the open at exactly 112.16, and, incredibly, the market rallied through 113.17 for a clean $1,000 profit per contract!

Black Box Forecasts is simply black magic, and I particularly admire your patience and discipline to only offer trades whose projected profits are four times greater than the money risked. With odds like that you provide a money management, risk/reward discipline that is unrivaled.”

"I’ve been a full-time trader for 3 years, have used many newsletters, Internet sites, and even developed a screening application. The information gained was at best hit or miss. Then I came across Black Box Forecasts and became a subscriber. Rick’s uncanny ability to hit price points intraday and longer term have helped me develop trading methods as aggressively as I deem prudent. Using Black Box Forecasts as a trading tool has been very profitable. I would recommend the newsletter to any active trader."

Myths About Trading…Demystified

Perhaps you have some lingering ideas in your head about trading that still make you wary.

I’ll be the first to say, you should be scared out of your boots! There are many well-founded ideas people have about trading that are simply false when it comes to the methods I teach and how my students and I conduct trades.

Myth #1: Trading Takes 8 Hours a Day Watching Charts

While many trading practices have popularized this perception of trading, it’s completely false for my methods.

Here’s the Truth:

Myth #2: Market Timing is Highly Risky

This is very true. Most market timing methods that attempt to predict market movements are horrible. The batting average of these methods gets even worse when you’ve got an up and down roller coaster market. But there’s a reason that I’ve been a successful trader for decades and why thousands of students of my methods have too!

Here’s the Truth:

Myth #3: Trading is Too Complicated

It’s true that some trading methods involve a lot of math, charts, and other hair-brained factors to try to predict chart moves. However, my Mechanical Method involves zero math. You will learn to identify chart structures and patterns in order to make logical, emotionless, objective decisions.

Here’s the Truth:

Here’s my promise to you – once you fully grasp this Mechanical Trade System, you’re going to be stunned at how precisely you’ll be tagging market highs, lows, upturns and downturns.

In fact, once you master it you’ll be coming within a tick or two of dead-center bulls eyes for many (if not most) of your trade entries and exits.
