    from the IBD group email:


    Gil has a few more feathers in his cap.

    For example:

    In the period from January 1, 1998 to December 31, 2005, Mr. Morales achieved in his personal account a total return of 10,904.25% as audited by Rothstein Kass & Company, a hedge fund auditing firm. Applying a standard hedge fund 2%/20% fee structure to this return would yield a pro forma return of 5,572.04%, net of fees.

    Why miss the chance to hear an investor of this stature?

    If you haven't RSVP'd for this very rare event, please do so ASAP. Also, try to arrive early, because there have been times when it's been standing room only for star presenters of this caliber.

  9. For the record, I would like to deal with those who make claims that "truth is, Gil's hedge fund isnt doing very good right now, per a close friend of mine." I consider this to be slanderous. While 2007 was a difficult year for personal and business reasons, having to uproot and move my funds from a bad business situation, getting caught short a couple of times, and having the dog eat my charts, etc. etc., we are doing just fine in 2008, so to make a claim that we are doing poorly "right now" is patently false. 2007 is over, and we are focused on moving forward from here, so far successfully. It is written that what makes a great trader great is not their successes, but how they come back from adversity, something that hits every trader at some point in their career.
