Dear Fellow-Trader,

If you’ve been worried about retirement income in this volatile market caused by Covid-19, and you’re fed up with the ups and downs of your portfolio…

I promise to show you a clear and proven trading set-up that empowers you to:

Why Beginners Fail…And How YOU Can Easily Win…

If you’ve tried trading before and failed, there’s a good reason that happened.

You see, the biggest challenge beginners have is taking the knowledge and failing to use it in a disciplined way. This is NOT your fault.

Most methods aren’t strict and fail to provide exact rules for combining safety and profitability. With this method, there are ONLY TWO RULES. However, they are so clear and specific that beginners and experts alike can set up and manage trades with LASER PRECISION and confidence!

Rick; just wanted to let you know that SQ was a trade I made after signing up for the Mechanical Trade system...In one of your videos back then you noted a 160 high...I used that mechanical set up from the 136 area Aug 10th entry...and just closed out my position @ 160.32 a bit ago...many thanks sir.. it works! - olddog [from members’ forum, 8.30.2020]
The trick is to accurately and consistently read price bars so that you see what others miss. Apply my simple rules, and with practice you will develop the kind of horse sense that only the most successful traders possess. You’ll find out how to do this with zero previous experience, but first…

Who is Rick Ackerman?

You’re probably wondering, “Who is this guy…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. 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 trend and target forecasts and for the Hidden Pivot Method I use to achieve superior results. My provocative commentaries 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 for you…

What Happened to Your ‘Nest Egg?’

About every ten 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, only a decade later, ‘The Great Pause’ is occurring. This 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, make portfolio income, and all you know is “buy low, sell high”…you may have better luck on the blackjack 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, busier than ever, frustrated or all of the above.

That’s why I’m revealing one of my best trading strategies that 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 forecasts. It’s like having a crystal ball. I entered the entire trade before the open, and like magic, the low was hit shortly after the open.

[Rick’s] Forecasts are simply black magic, and I particularly admire your patience and discipline [...] with odds like that you provide a money management, risk/reward discipline that is unrivaled.”

Mechanical Trading System

A Rules-Based Trading Strategy that Minimizes Risk and Maximizes Profit Potential Regardless of Market Swings

For a Limited Time, Just $397

Before I go on to discuss what you get in this course…

How to Accomplish Two Powerful Investment Objectives

The ‘MECHANICAL’ trading strategy is a method that meets two critical objectives for seniors nearing or in retirement…

Half of Americans are rightly scared that they’ll go broke in retirement while millions have lost their jobs and businesses and, sadly, ARE broke.

That’s because they don’t have a plan to generate income REGARDLESS of wild market swings. Due to the global pandemic, nobody knows the trouble we’ll see in the markets…so the old-school buy and hold strategy is a death sentence if you need portfolio cash now.

If you learn this method that works for many students to generate a full-time income, in as little as one hour a day, you will never have to worry about going broke.

You can generate profits that replace your paycheck within 60 – 90 minutes a day!

And you can do this as many days as you want to generate as much supplemental monthly income as you need.


You can have all this with the ‘MECHANICAL’ TRADE Set-Up.

The ‘MECHANICAL’ set-up is the simplest, most powerful trick I’ve discovered in 40 years of trading, including 12 in the pits of the Pacific Stock Exchange. Everything you need to know to master it is contained in a two-hour video lesson.

It will enable you to initiate trades based on two easy rules and to manage the ongoing risk on autopilot.

With this technique…

This course could sell for $5,000 or more. You’ll learn everything you need to know, even if you are starting from zero, to generate income that can supplement what you earn on-the-job, and do so regardless of market conditions.

I’ve sold courses like this for years – for as much as $2,500. An important goal of mine is to help people whose income has been disrupted by the shifting economy. I see far too many hard-working people who are scared of being laid off, and highly skilled workers doing menial jobs. I’m sure they are all wishing there were a better way.

That’s why I’ve priced this course at a moderate $497. But to reach as many people as possible on the initial launch, I’ve discounted the offering to just $397.

You can literally make that back on your first day of trading, as many have, and you’ll be able to build on your successes each day for years to come.

Then I came across (Rick’s) 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.

Myths About Trading…Demystified

Perhaps you have some lingering ideas about trading that make you wary.

I’ll be the first to say, you should be scared out of your boots! There are many well-founded myths people believe about trading that are simply false. The methods I use and teach my students are simple, powerful and profitable!

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 perform poorly. The batting average of these methods gets even worse in a 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

Some trading methods are heavy on math, charts, and other mind-numbing tasks. However, ‘MECHANICAL’ trades involve zero math. You will learn to visually identify profitable patterns that take the emotion out of trading.

Here’s the Truth:

Look Ma, No Math! I was a college English major and no whiz with numbers. That’s why the method I’ve developed is mainly visual, with a few simple rules to help lock in winning trades. The rules are designed to make it very simple, and to allow one to initiate trades without letting emotions get in the way.

Here’s my promise to you: Once you fully grasp this ‘MECHANICAL’ Trading Set-Up, you’re going to be stunned at how precisely you’ll be nailing market highs, lows and key turning points.

Once you master a few simple rules and visual techniques, you’ll be able to enter and exit trades with the kind of precise timing that “experts” will tell you is impossible.
