Webinar by Avi Gilburt, Leo Valencia, Mike Golembesky, Garrett Patten & Zac Mannes
Moderated by Thomas Sweeney, Vice President Client Relations at AdviceTrade and ElliottWaveTrader.
Meet Our Presenters:
Avi is founder of ElliottWaveTrader.net, a live trading room and member forum focusing on Elliott Wave market analysis. 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."
Since Avi began providing his analysis to the public, he has made some spectacular market calls which have earned him the reputation of being one of the best technical analysts in the world. 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.
One of his most shocking calls wasl in 2015 for the S&P 500 to rally from the 1800 region to the 2600 region. Moreover, he was banging on the table in November 2016 that we were about to enter the most powerful phase of the rally to 2600, strongly noting that it did not matter who won the 2016 U.S. election despite many believing that the market would “crash” if Trump won.
A lawyer and accountant by training, 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, Nasdaq.com, Forbes and Seeking Alpha, where he is the #1-read metals analyst.
"Leov," as he is known in the Trading Room, hosts the Gamma Optimizer service at ElliottWaveTrader, where he provides options education and trade set-ups, as well as access to his proprietary Gamma Optimizer tool. The tool helps traders pick the option strike and expiration that maximize returns for a particular move in the underlying.
Leov has also developed what he calls the Deep Learning Algorithm, which, trained with historical SPX data, seeks to predict 1% upside moves in the SPX within a 5-session period. This algorithm is among the tools Leov provides in guiding members of Gamma Optimizer with options trading strategies and set-ups for minimizing risk and maximizing returns.
With a PhD in physics from Stanford University, Leov is an electrical engineer with more than 20 years of experience in research and development projects. He was a member of the technical staff at Bell Labs Lucent Technologies in the RF and Analog Simulation department, and also a senior member of Consulting Staff at Cadence Design systems for more than 15 years working on analog and digital simulation software projects.

In 2012 he joined EWT where he further honed his knowledge of Elliott Wave analysis and Fibonacci Pinball. Mike also has an extensive background in real estate investing and finance, having spent close to 10 years working in this field. He is a regular contributor to sites such as Seeking Alpha, Nasdaq.com, and Money Show.

Zac began working in finance as an investment adviser in 2008, and adopted Elliott Wave Theory.
