"THE BEST in This Business" --PSK (ElliottWaveTrader)

Avi Gilburt is a founder of FATRADER, where he shares his market sentiment analysis and moderates a team of some of the top-read and top-rated fundamental analysts online today.

Best known for the accuracy of his Elliott Wave market analysis on ElliottWaveTrader and Seeking Alpha (where he has been one of the top read analysts in metals and general markets for years), Avi has launched FATRADER to showcase research and elevate discussion in areas where fundamental and macro analysis can be effective.

Avi is an accountant and a lawyer by training. His education background includes his graduating college with dual accounting and economics majors, and he then passed all four parts of the CPA exam at once right after he graduated college. He then earned his Juris Doctorate in an advanced two and a half year program at the St. John’s School of Law in New York, where he graduated cum laude, and in the top 5% of his class. He then went onto the NYU School of Law for his masters of law in taxation (LL.M.).

Before retiring from his legal career, Avi was a partner and National Director at a major national firm. During his legal career, he spearheaded a number of acquisition transactions worth hundreds of millions to billions of dollars in value. So, clearly, he has a detailed understanding how businesses work and are valued.

Since founding ElliottWaveTrader in 2011, and developing a method of Elliott Wave analysis known as Fibonacci Pinball, Avi has made some spectacular market calls which has earned him the reputation of being one of the best technical analysts in the world. For example, in July of 2011, he called for the USD to begin a multi-year rally from the 74 region to an ideal target of 103.53. In January of 2017, the DXY struck 103.82 and began a pullback expected by Avi.

As another example of one of his astounding calls, Avi called the top in the gold market during its parabolic phase in 2011, with an ideal target of $1,915. As we all know, gold hit a high of $1,921, and pulled back for over 4 years since that time. The night that gold hit its lows in December 2015, Avi was telling his subscribers that he was on the phone with his broker buying a large order of physical gold, while he had been accumulating individual miner stocks that month, and had just opened the EWT Miners Portfolio to begin buying individual miners stocks due to his expectation of an impending low in the complex.

One of his most shocking calls in the stock market was his call in 2015 for the S&P 500 to rally from the 1800 region to the 2600 region, whereas it would coincide with a “global melt-up” in many other assets. Moreover, he was banging on the table in November of 2016 that we were about to enter the most powerful phase of the rally to 2600, and he strongly noted that it did not matter who won the 2016 election in the US, despite many believing that the market would “crash” if Trump would win the election. This was indeed a testament to the accuracy of the Fibonacci Pinball method that Avi developed.

Avi's Elliott Wave analysis has developed a subscriber base of over 4500 members, and 500 money manager clients.

Market Update - Market Analysis on Apr 14th, 2019

The 2910/15 region on the S&P 500 is a resistance region for me at this time. Currently, support has now moved up to the 2865/85 SPX region. If the market is unable to break down below that support, then the door has opened to rally as high as the 3011-40 region.

Do You Think Like The Rest Of The Market?

This past week,I wrote a facetious post on FATrader.com and then published it as a blog post on Seeking Alpha. Not a single one of the initial commenters took issue with my ridiculous attempt at trying to align the political news with the market directional move.

Stock Market Is Sending A Lot Of Mixed Messages

While my ideal target is in the 2200 region on the S&P 500 (SPX), I may have to revise my buying opportunity in the 2520-2640 SPX region, depending upon the path the market takes over the coming month.

How Does A Market Top?

It is not selling that causes a market to top.  Rather, markets top when there are no more buyers to push the market higher.

Don’t Let The Market Turn You Into A Pavlovian Investor

I want to explain to you how the market has been training investors, and potentially “setting them up,” for when we are finally ripe for the major bear market I expect to begin in a few years.

Thinking More Deeply About What Drives The Market

While my general perspective is that market sentiment drives markets and stocks that trade on large enough volume to exhibit the sentiment of the general masses, as we look to smaller and smaller stocks and markets, fundamentals will play a larger role.
