What to Expect

The Forex Trading Workshop is the classroom training course. This Live Forex Trading Workshop is the hands-on training to experience the Forex systems you just learned.


The three trend-following systems that are taught in the Forex workshop will be traded in the Forex market in different timeframes. The course is an in-the-field learning experience in which students have a master coach by their side and are able to apply the trading concepts in the real world.

Gabriel is a rule-based discretionary trader—the type of trader that Dr. Tharp has found to be the most successful (click here to read the article). Discretion— according to the principles of Tharp Think—means that you use rules in a disciplined and logical manner complemented by experience and intuition. It doesn’t mean doing whatever you feel like doing at that moment.


The process is iterative and reinforces in a practical way Van Tharp's trading concepts and tools. You will see, understand and apply the Tharp Think Principles. Whether you are a trader or investor, a professional or part-time trader, the Forex markets offer the flexibility to fit your style (in whatever timezone you might be living). While one of the goals during the two-day workshop is “generating positive R-multiples”, it is seen as more important that the attendees take home a full array of “learning experiences” that make them a better trader/investor back home. These live trading days will give you the opportunity to gain “unconscious competence” - once achieved, flawless execution and consistent profitability become reality.

Workshop Structure

Gabriel’s systems have an important aspect that is based in visual pattern recognition. As such you will need to train your eyes to be able to detect the trade opportunities. This is why the first day is a day of trade simulation (recorded historical data run on a software system). On your private PC the price charts are reproduced as if being the live market, however in a controlled environment. You will apply the rule-set to identify the different setups. Then you will perform entries and exits as if trading real Live markets. You will build a lot of experience in a very short time as you can speed up time — as well as go back and forth in time! Experience has shown that this is a very important preparation for the following two Live Trading days. Do not miss this learning experience.

Based on the markets in the evening, you will craft your weekly and daily trading plan by applying Gabriel’s three trend-following systems. You will trade (it is recommended to demo-trade) your own platform with your own money — all under the guidance of Gabriel, who will offer thorough direction and individualized feedback. The markets are analyzed and trades executed by Gabriel in an interactive way by using a projector.


The structure of the day:

  • Set-up of any required software.
  • Mental trading preparation process (meditation, mental rehearsal etc.)
  • Analysis of the 26 most liquid Forex pairs in different timeframes (5min, 15min, 1h, 4h, Daily, Weekly & Monthly charts); as well Commodities and an Equity index will be analyzed
  • Elaboration of a trading plan with trade/investing opportunities on various timeframes
  • Screening process and tools that Gabriel uses to detect opportunities
  • Execution of the trading systems in the live markets (from stalking via entry to exit)
  • Documentation of the trades by using a Trading Journal and a list of R-multiples
  • Daily debrief at the end of the day (incl. lessons learned for the next day)

Participants in the workshop are invited to prepare their daily & weekly trading plans with Gabriel’s guidance, call out their observations and trade opportunities during the live markets. Smaller groups of like-minded traders will be formed to allow for mutual learning. At the end of the day, the trade results will be collected and learning experiences will be shared with the group.

When we offered this workshop for the first time, a number of attendees who’d attended Gabriel’s workshops in the past already registered for the class before a workshop description was made available. Why? Because, through personal experience, they know that Gabriel has remarkable experience with his systems and is an outstanding teacher who has a passion to make people grow in many aspects. They also know that through this workshop, Gabriel will help them to implement the systems in a faster, easier and more profitable way—especially in the current market conditions.

Additional Resources


What To Bring to the Workshop and Information on Forex Data
  • Please bring a laptop computer (PC or Mac) to the workshop. In Forex Live you will use your laptop to practice trading the systems taught in the workshop with your own brokerage demo account. Please check to see if your broker provides you with real-time Forex data (this is usually the case).

  • Once you have registered, VTI will send you an email with further instructions on how to prepare for the workshop regarding how to set-up your chart layout for higher timeframe analysis. It has proven to be important that you make yourself familiar with Gabriel’s chart layout well before the workshop starts. It will make it easier for you to process the amount of information provided on the three systems.

  • For those only attending the 2-day Forex Live workshop, Gabriel will provide you (just before FX Live starts) with his complete charting layouts for the three systems for free. This covers different timeframes as well as various indicators and tools that he uses for screening and trading the markets. All of this is being based on the MT4 trading platform (most FX brokers trade on MT4). This will facilitate your trading during the live portion of this workshop and will make things much easier once you return home to start trading! (You must first attend the three-day forex trading systems workshop to attend the live trading, however, some people choose to attend the three day workshop first and come back another time for live.)


Come to the live trading session. If you are not convinced the live trading is right for you by the end of the first day, you can ask for a full refund.


The workshop is held in the Van Tharp Institute in-house workshop facility at 102A Commonwealth Court, Cary, North Carolina.


You will be trading the systems you have learned in the two-day Forex Trading Workshop. Please be aware that you must first attend that workshop to attend these live sessions.
