Avi Gilburt is founder of ElliottWaveTrader.net, a live trading room and member forum focusing on Elliott Wave market analysis. Since its launch in 2011, ElliottWaveTrader has grown into a trading community featuring more than a dozen analysts and thousands of members from over 40 countries. Coverage includes analysis of U.S. indices and stocks, precious metals, energy, bonds, forex, market internals & sentiment, and world indices and stocks.
Avi emphasizes a comprehensive reading of charts and wave counts that is free of personal bias or predisposition. He is particularly known for identifying a standardized method for determining whether movement within the market is going to be a 5-wave move as opposed to a 3-wave move. This method, known as "Fibonacci Pinball," has been called by some as "the single most useful addition the Elliott Wave lexicon" and "one of the most profound discoveries in EW analysis." (See Testimonials.)
Avi is a popular speaker at financial forums and conferences in the U.S. and internationally, including The Traders Expo and Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) Conference, and widely syndicated on sites including MarketWatch, TheStreet, Seeking Alpha, Nasdaq.com, Forbes and more. He was the #1-read metals analyst for 3 years on Seeking Alpha, and is consistently among the top-followed contributors to MarketWatch's Trading Deck.
One of the main reasons Avi has been among the most widely followed metals analyst in the world has been due to his accuracy. In 2011, those that heeded his warning of a top to the metals market exited the market within $6 of the all-time high struck in gold. And in October 2015, he suggested those that followed his analysis begin to move back into metals and mining stocks again.
In the equity markets, while most were concerned about a market crash at the end of January of 2016, Avi was suggesting that a global melt-up was about to take hold in US equity markets and emerging markets. And, as we know, the US equity markets and emerging markets rallied strongly from February until September.
A lawyer and accountant by training, Avi is also managing member of Gilburt Financial Services, LLC, which provides financial markets analysis and consulting.
