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.

Two ‘mechanical’ trades I’d disseminated to subscribers Monday night and Tuesday morning, respectively, are showing gains totaling around $7200 at the moment. They were flagged in ‘tout’ updates for the E-Mini S&Ps and August Gold, and both included charts to help you visualize my instructions. The Gold tout was rated ‘6.6’ out of 10– not stellar odds, but not bad either for subscribers who have grown tired sitting on their thumbs as the broad averages continue their vertical rise. If I hear from at least two subs who did either trade and are still in it, I’ll establish a tracking position. In the meantime, rally targets for both are provided in the latest updates.
