Market Mastery

Back Issues

Years ago, Van Tharp began writing newsletter reports as supplemental updates to his Peak Performance Home Study Course. We have backissues for sale.

"I believe that what I write about is timeless information and in some ways I wish that I had never called it a newsletter. In the traditional sense of the word, people pay hundreds and thousands of dollars to get a trading system and they will also pay big bucks to get a newsletter that provides them with current information about the markets or specific stocks or investments. All of these things are pretty soon out of date. So the word “newsletter” is often associated with something that is in the moment and only useful at the time that it is released. 

"However, what I write is not obsolete on the week that it comes out, it has no expiration. I write about what is necessary for trading success. Old newsletters being  seen as expired news is  very discouraging for me because I believe that the information that I have written will be able to help new and experienced traders alike if they take the time to learn it.

"I just hope that people realize that these back issues are still as valuable today as when they were written." — Van Tharp

Dr. Van Tharp has been publishing his newsletter for years. 

 

The amount of valuable, timeless  information contained in these issues is HUGE.
