Rick Ackerman is the editor of Rick’s Picks, an online service geared to traders of stocks, options, index futures and commodities. His detailed trading strategies have appeared since the early 1990s in Black Box Forecasts, a newsletter he founded that originally was geared to professional option traders. Barron’s once labeled him an “intrepid trader” in a headline that alluded to his key role in solving a notorious pill-tampering case. He received a $200,000 reward when a conviction resulted, and the story was retold on TV’s FBI: The Untold Story. His professional background includes 12 years as a market maker in the pits of the Pacific Coast Exchange, three as an investigator with renowned San Francisco private eye Hal Lipset, seven as a reporter and newspaper editor, three as a columnist for the Sunday San Francisco Examiner, and two decades as a contributor to publications ranging from Barron’s to The Antiquarian Bookman to Fleet Street Letter and Utne Reader.

Just when toilet paper supplies were starting to loosen up, we learn there’s a run on pepper spray. Do people who live in or near big cities dare leave home without it?  You may be in greater danger than you think, what with Antifa threatening to fan out into the suburbs. More effective than pepper spray would be a lawn sign advertising your zealous support for the Second Amendment. Concerning the looting and riots, which seem to have quieted now that the weekend is past, seekers of ‘social justice’ missed a historical opportunity to make a magisterial impression with candlelight vigils across the land for the late George Floyd. The impact that peaceful marches might have had has gotten lost in a blaze of looting, mayhem and rage, much of it captured, with horrifying explicitness, in videos that ran 24/7 over the weekend on the major networks. The lingering images will pose a serious setback for the aspirations of black Americans while boosting the electability in November of candidates known for taking a strong stand on law and order.
