Tharp Think: Essentials
The Fundamentals of Successful Trading
Presented by Van K. Tharp, Ph.D.
Knowing This Material Will Give You A Huge Edge in the Markets
This workshop is designed by Van Tharp to cover the important fundamentals for successful trading— a set of ideas and principles that he calls "Tharp Think."
These concepts take the mystery out of trading by helping you understand who you are as a trader, how your personal psychology can work for you instead of against you, how to think about and manage risk, and how to develop winning trading systems.
|Van Introduces a Special Workshop|
Recently, we started to sell access to online recordings of our systems workshops. That development prompted me to evaluate what we are doing. Our mission is personal transformation through the trading metaphor and I want to make sure all of our products embody our mission. Specifically, I don’t want us to become just like any other trading education company.
Most other trading education companies would have you believe that you could take a “magic” system workshop and then go home and trade profitably. That’s just not how people transform themselves into good traders. There are two main problems with the magic system workshop approach. First, no single trading system is magic. Certain systems for certain traders under certain conditions may appear to perform magically but change the trader or the conditions and the “magic” disappears. Second and most importantly, there is so much more involved in trading well than just a system. I want to make sure our clients get these critical points.
In a few cases, you can even take workshops here and escape the foundation material required to become a great trader. But that material is what makes everything work and you must know it well in order to trade well. That material is in our Peak Performance workshops, the Peak Home Study Course, Trading Beyond the Matrix and our position sizing™ strategy books and materials.
If you don’t establish the proper foundation by studying these subjects, then with or without a system, you are going to trade like nearly everyone else in the markets — acting out of fear and greed and wanting to be right about your trades. I don’t have to explain that trading at that low level of consciousness will not lead you down a path to profits. Rather, you need to be able to create a mental state where you can remain neutral and simply accept regular losses (i.e,, -1R or smaller) as a normal part of the game.
In addition, you need to understand the key elements that I always teach about systems such as—
It’s really important that you understand these concepts and integrate them at a very core level. And that’s what we are presenting Tharp Think Essentials.
I’ve decided to run a special two-day course to give you the psychological background you need to raise your consciousness so that you are trading from a level of acceptance instead of fear/greed and to give you the key information you need to be able to make a good system actually work for you.

|Benefits of the Workshop|
Understand the key levels of transformation that form the mission of the Van Tharp Institute and know what it takes to achieve those levels of transformation. For example you will—
In addition, we’re going to give you some simple ways to improve your health and stress. You’ll be exposed to both laughter yoga and to some advanced HeartMath® training for the EMwave 2.
But there is even more. This workshop will also cover some of the key concepts that you need to thoroughly understand to become a great trader. Some of these key concepts include:
1) How to recognize the most common mistakes that people make and what they could cost you.
Any trader who learns how to prevent mistakes and understands things like market type, thinking in terms of reward to risk, and using position sizing strategies to meet your objectives could immediately see a huge increase in the level of their profitability. It’s that critical.

There is a catch, however, to all of these benefits. Right now we are only planning to give this workshop one time — September 6th and 7th, 2014. The cost will be $1995, but we will give a huge early enrollment discount of $700 for anyone who enrolls by August 27th. Since we are only planning to give this workshop once, we expect it to sell out quickly. So plan on enrolling as soon as possible.
In addition, the HeartMath® EMWave2 measuring unit regularly sells for $199 from HeartMath. If you plan to attend the workshop, we will offer these units for just $149 as part of our special enrollment package. This is an optional purchase for those who are enrolled in the workshop. You can also bring your own unit or just watch the EMWave2 training (rather than do it) to see if you think it’s something you might want to do regularly.
