    Shah Gilani

    Shah is considered one of the world’s foremost experts on the credit crisis.

    He not only called for the implosion of the U.S. financial markets, he also predicted the historic rebound that began in March 2009. Shah’s open letters to the White House, Congress, and U.S. Treasury secretaries outlined detailed policy options that have been lauded by academics and legislators alike.

    His experience and knowledge uniquely distinguish Shah as a “trader’s trader.” Shah ran his first hedge fund in 1982 from his seat on the floor of the Chicago Board of Options Exchange. When the OEX (options on the Standard & Poor’s 100) began trading on March 11, 1983, Shah was working in the pit as a market maker. And along with other traders, he popularized what later became known as the VIX (volatility index). He left Chicago to run the futures and options division of the British banking giant Lloyd’s TSB.

    Shah went on to originate and run a packaged fixed-income trading desk for Roosevelt & Cross Inc., an old-line New York boutique bond firm, and established that company’s listed and OTC trading desks. Shah started another hedge fund in 1999, which he ran until 2003, when he retired to develop land holdings with partners.

    Today Shah is the editor of Capital Wave Forecast and Short-Side Fortunes. He also writes our most talked-about publication, an e-letter called Wall Street Insights & Indictments, where he reveals how Wall Street’s high-stakes game is really played, and how to win it.

    Shah studied economics and psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles.

    Michael A. Robinson

    Michael A. Robinson is a 34-year Silicon Valley veteran and one of the top technology financial analysts working today.

    His work as a consultant, senior advisor and board member for Silicon Valley venture capital firms has placed him at the center of several major tech innovations including robotics used to revolutionize the auto industry… the $160 billion a year “Cloud Computing” industry… and the latest cyber military technologies.

    He’s also a Pulitzer Prize-nominated writer and reporter, lauded by the Columbia Journalism Review for his aggressive style. His book “Overdrawn: The Bailout of American Savings” was a prescient look at the anatomy of the nation’s S&L crisis, long before the word “bailout” became part of our daily lexicon. It’s no wonder that Silicon Valley defense publications vie for Michael’s analysis. He’s worked for Defense Media Network and Signal Magazine, as well as The New York Times, American Enterprise, and The Wall Street Journal.

     His status as a leading tech analyst has garnered him rave reviews, too.

    As editor of the financial newsletter American Wealth Underground, he amassed an amazing track record. The first analyst to uncover the rare earth mineral crisis, he amassed cumulative gains of 990% for his readers in just 16 months. Today he is the editor of the monthly tech investing newsletter Nova-X Report as well as Radical Technology Profits, where he covers truly radical technologies – ones that have the power to sweep across the globe and change the very fabric of our lives – and profit opportunities they give rise to. He also explores “what’s next” in the tech investing world at Strategic Tech Investor.com

    Michael has an honors economics degree from the University of Missouri at Columbia. He’s also a registered NRA Triple Distinguished Expert in shotgun, pistol, and rifle and one heck of a blues guitarist.

    Ernie Tremblay

    Ernie Tremblay has over 20 years’ experience studying and writing about the latest developments in health, medicine, and related technologies. He understands the FDA approval process, the “hard science” behind these drugs, and the market demand for them, better than almost anyone else on earth. He has mastered the complex dynamics that determine whether a new drug will be a breakthrough winner – or just another casualty of the FDA approval process.

    He has edited books on science, microbiology, and groundbreaking medical therapies for top publishers like Harper Collins, Penguin Putnam, and Prentice Hall. He’s also co-authored and contributed to books and articles on diseases from Alzheimer’s to rheumatology. Over the decades, Ernie has gained “insider” access to some of the world’s top medical professionals, including Nobel-caliber doctors like Yale’s Karel Liem, Columbia’s George Gaylord Simpson, and Harvard’s William S. Beck.

    As a guest editor for Money Map Press since 2012, Ernie has already given readers opportunities to land substantial gains – including one bioscience stock that brought readers triple-digit gains four times in eight months. Now he’s putting his developed knowledge of the inner workings of the FDA drug approval process to work for members of his Biotech Insider Alert service, showing them precisely when a new drug or medical technology is about to give a calendar “pop” to a company’s share price.
