Mr. Leibovit has been a member of Midwest Options Exchange and the Chicago Board Options Exchange where he became a market maker in 1976. In 1979, after consulting with several regional brokerage firms, he left the floor and began publishing his newsletter, The Volume Reversal Survey, now called the VRtrader.com. He holds CIMA (Certified Investment Management Analyst) and AIF (Accredited Investment Fiduciary) designations and is a member of the Market Technicians Association (MTA), the National Association of Active Investment Managers (NAAIM) and the CFA Institute.
The website has been online since January 2009.
The VR GoldLetter Newsletter looks at short and long-term technical projections for Gold ETFs, Large and Small Cap Gold Stocks and physical precious metals, with some commentary and a number of useful charts. They provide an analysis of GLD, IAU, and DGP, including market corrections with DGZ and DZZ. In addition, they cover junior and senior gold and silver stocks and gold and silver shares. The approach is basically momentum-aided volatility trading, a strategy somewhat similar to that of Befriend the Trend Trading and Lenny Dykstra (although the latter uses long-only trades of deep-in-the-money call options).
