About Gabe Velazquez
Gabe got his start in the markets as a broker trainee for Paine Webber, a mere 3 months before the market crash of 1987. He witnessed the gut wrenching fear of investors during that time period and the wild speculative euphoria of the late 90's. That experience brought to light the importance risk management plays in trading and investing. In fact, it's greatly influenced the way he trades today.
He spent 15 years as a stock and commodities broker, conducting technical analysis seminars throughout Southern California. After many years of managing other people's money, Gabe now concentrates full time on trading his own portfolio and teaching. Students will benefit from his first hand experience of daily involvement in the market. He brings with him an acute awareness and understanding of how the markets really work. Articulating this knowledge clearly, succinctly, and with enthusiasm is something students can appreciate. This gift for communicating was honed through many years of public speaking.
He currently holds a series 7, 63, 9 and 10 (securities and options principals license.)
