LARRY EDELSON has been actively involved in the precious metals markets for over 20 years. In 1978, he started at Wilcap Advisors, a private money management firm which specialized in gold and silver.
In 1982, Mr. Edelson subsequently joined Emanuel Capital Management, where he was a senior trader, managing several million in private funds in precious metals. During this time, Mr. Edelson became the largest gold arbitrage trader in the world, trading an average of $175 million worth of bullion daily. Plus, he was also responsible for making future spread markets in gold and silver.
In 1982, Mr. Edelson became the founder and principal of International Commodity Services, Inc., an international commodity brokerage firm with offices in Hamburg, Munich, Dusseldorf, and Osaka, Japan.
In 1995, Mr. Edelson joined Weiss Research as Co-Editor of the Silver & Gold Report. In 1996, he became Associate Editor of Safe Money Report, published by Weiss Research, Inc. He is now Managing Editor of that report, as well as Editor of Larry's Interest Rate Speculator and Larry's Gold Trader, and Co-Editor of Stock Options Hotline, Index Options Hotline, Stock Market Dogs, and International Options Speculator.
Mr. Edelson's market timing has been uncanny, both in stocks and precious metals. In August 1987, he told all his clients to get out of the stock market in order to sidestep a crash. Then, at the bottom of the 1987 stock market crash, he published a special report, Cycles of War, forecasting a virtually nonstop bull market that would last until the late 1990's.
Mr. Edelson received a Bachelor of Arts degree in economic anthropology from Columbia University in 1976, and did his post-graduate studies at New York University.
