Over the coming years, Van Tharp foresees excellent trading opportunities in the currency market because of several big-picture forces. Primarily, central banks will not only pump more fresh money into the markets, but will continue their attempts to influence the relative value of their currencies against other currencies. Combine that with the imbalances caused by trade and debt levels, and we have a currency market that promises great trading opportunities with stable trends for the years to come.
Add to this attractive volatility one important, very practical, and positive point for individuals: Forex has evolved into a market in which individual investors can trade efficiently. That wasn't always the case. Some 20 years back it used to make little sense for individual traders to trade currencies because you had to have a significant amount of capital to open a Forex trading account, which was only available at big money-center banks. The expansion of the Forex market over the last decade, however, has made the Forex market by far the biggest and most liquid financial market that can be traded. It is very accessible with low transaction costs and easy to navigate for individuals on a global scale over the 24h cycle. This large group of retail traders has complemented the ever-existent institutional trading to create an even larger and more liquid market for currency exchange. Think about complementing your Stock, ETF, Futures or Options trading/investing with Forex – a very special asset class of its own.
Van Tharp Institute clients have been requesting a Forex trading workshop consistently for many years. This three-day workshop will show you what it takes to trade Forex and send you home with three trading systems—and even a good amount of hands-on trading experience through simulation. Plus, two days of add-on live trading if you choose! But not only that, this time Gabriel offers for free a 3rd live trading day during which you will learn all about Cryptocurrencies and how to trade them.

Your instructor, Gabriel Grammatidis, is a professional trader with more than 35 years of successful trading experience trading Forex, Futures, Cryptos, Stocks and Options. He began investing as part of a school project, and before leaving grade school to attend college, was in the mid-80ties already actively trading the commodity futures markets. He earned international Masters’ degrees in both Economics and Business, and went on to hold executive positions at both PIMCO and Allianz Global Investors - two world-class firms in Investment Management.
After working in the corporate world for more than a decade, he decided to take his passion for trading and personal development to the next level. He enrolled in our Super Trader program in 2008, and 2 years later, began professionally trading the Forex and Futures markets full-time as a graduate of our elite program.
Gabriel has a passion for teaching people and help others in their trader development process. Over the years Gabriel has developed a very effective approach for traders to develop based on the principles of Deliberate Practice. Gabriel is known for developing trader talent through Workshops, Group Mentoring and Individual Coaching. His personal mission is to develop full-time traders within less than 8 months (which he regularly does). Now, he’s ready to coach you to success in the Forex markets.
Born in Switzerland of Greek and German parents, Gabriel has always felt a natural attraction to the international nature of the currency markets. Growing up in Germany, he’s worked and traveled extensively outside the Eurozone. The 24-hour Forex spot (cash) market allows him to apply his systems to various timeframes (from very short-term to Weekly charts) at any time of the day that best fits his lifestyle.
The Theory: All You Need to Know About Forex
Gabriel will spend most of the workshop teaching his trend-following systems that combine unique edges based on psychological biases of market actors into great trading systems.
The first half-day is spent to go over the specifics of trading the Forex market and cover such topics as:
- Why trade Forex?
- What are the advantages and drawbacks of trading Forex versus other instruments?
- What are the main market characteristics, and who are the Forex market participants?
- What methods and strategies work best in the Forex market?
- All you need to know about Forex trading specifics (sessions, lots, pips, currency pairs, etc).
- How are Forex chart characteristics different than stocks or futures?
- Why Forex may actually be the best market for new traders to learn trading.
- What are the trading edges that work in Forex?
In his workshop, Gabriel teaches proven low-risk trading systems. His three systems are trend-based and involve a visual pattern based on the psychological dynamic of buyers and sellers. Looking at the price charts, you can easily see how price action creates the patterns. His systems can be traded in a wide range of time frames across a wide array of currency pairs. Just recently, Gabriel has added Bitcoin and other Cryptos to his list of tradeable currencies. Gabriel's preferred trading style is Day- and Swing-Trading. He trades using primarily 15-minute as well as 5-, 60- and 240-minute candle charts. Once the trade develops well, he decides to transition some trades into a Swing Trade on a higher time frame. He will teach you his specific criteria for doing so. His trades usually tend to evolve over a period of anywhere from 15min to a couple of days but when his systems catch the early part of a strong trend, he will let his position (and profits) run for weeks if not months.
All three systems are based on the concept of trend-following. Each system is based on similar “ingredients,” but each has a different recipe to capture a different part of the trend market cycle. Consequently, the systems are complementary to each other and together offer multiple trading setups every day of the year.
The markets being fractal in nature, you can trade the systems with the same rule-set in any timeframe (eg 5min, 15min, 60min or even higher timeframes). Not being restricted to a specific timeframe or currency pair, you can be very flexible in your trading and get multiple opportunities per week. Some students have even chosen to trade the systems on end-of-day basis.
Gabriel’s first system, which he developed while in the Super Trader program, is his most mechanical system. It has a high win rate and takes advantage of a common trend occurrence—breakout failures. This is the type of system you will really enjoy to trade as it is built on a double trap that lures in counter-trend traders whose stops are then run over as a consequence. Running for other peoples’ stops is great fun and it puts you in the position of benefiting from an extended slingshot move. Gabriel is confident that someone with the programming skills could turn it into a well-performing semi- or fully automated trading system.
His second system is based on price breakouts, which are very easy to spot on the charts. This system requires a bit more experience to trade profitably than his first system. It has a slightly lower win rate of around 50%, but generates more trade setups, resulting in similar system performance results.
Gabriel's third system requires more "hands-on" attention. It uses tight stops, so it has a win rate of above 40%, but you can experience big R Multiples – and even a series of those in a row. A big edge is that it provides many trade entries once the market condition is right. It is the most profitable and prolific system for traders with some experience and discretion. It is the ideal system to build pyramids resulting in larger trade positions.
With System Quality Number™ scores of between 3.7 to over 4.7, all of Gabriel’s systems rank in the "Excellent" category in Van’s trading system classification! You can use position sizing™ strategies to achieve your trading objectives more easily with systems that have a high SQN score. When you get back home, you can adapt the systems to different currency pairs, shorter time frames, longer time frames, or even to different markets! These systems do as well work with less liquid Forex pairs showing similarly strong results. Due to the fractal nature of markets, the systems work equally well on timeframes as short as a 1min chart and as long as end-of-week prices. You have plenty of flexibility to adapt the systems, so they fit you.
Here's what one attendee wrote about his experience trading the systems at home:
"Firstly Gabriel's systems are quite a remarkable edge, and the expectancy is much higher than claimed. Taking out trader inefficiency, after the second month, I have been able to replicate Gabriel's own results in terms of win rate, expectancy, and SQN. This is the sort of super performance I always dreamed of.
I have a feeling of "my search is over" with regard to looking for new systems and trading ideas, and I have a framework for monitoring my own performance in spiritual/emotional as well as mechanical terms. I no longer have time to waste, I have a very clear idea of what needs to be done to improve my trading, and I am motivated to achieve my goals.
I am a dramatically improved trader right now, and I have Gabriel to thank for it. I consider myself an accomplished system builder, and there is no way I could ever come up with a system as well thought out as Gabriel's. It is a testament to the super trader process, which I follow faithfully.
Gabriel has been extremely helpful after the seminar also, critiquing my trades, and I am extremely grateful to have met him."
— Scott P., Trader from Australia
Practice the Rules for Each System in the Workshop:
Have you ever attended a trading workshop that taught a lot of methodology and a bunch of rules, only to find that you had trouble trading it when you got back home because you did not know how to apply the theory in practice? Gabriel had that experience and wanted to prepare the traders at his workshop better.
Students in this course come away with a solid understanding of the trading process because they practice the setups, entries, and exits in the class. Gabriel makes extensive use of a trading simulator (live history replay) with which actual trades are traded fast forward in class as if “live.” So you leave the workshop already having a good idea of how to apply the rules and trade the systems.
After a thorough review of each system, he slowly walks you through a number of trades on each system that has multiple time frame charts—basically, the same screen setup that Gabriel uses to identify setups, entries, and exits. All of these trades use recorded historical data run on a software system that reproduces the price charts from the date and time in the live market. You will be able to watch the setups happen in quick motion as he explains how to get ready for and make the entry, and then how to get ready for and make an exit. After walking the class through several simulations, Gabriel involves the students in the decision process for pattern detection, entry, and exits as they acquire competence.
When you get home, you’ll already have a good sense of trading each system—which means you’ll have a running start. And just to be sure, Gabriel provides everyone with pages of additional example trades to take home and study.

Finally, the use of the Simulator as I can see how much it will benefit me in my quest to become a consistent forex trader.
Gabriel definitely dominates the subject, but the best part is that he knows how to teach it. He is a wonderful Forex instructor!" — Cenny B., Englewood, CO
"I think these are amazing Forex systems with using visual pattern recognition being so natural to humans. This is not easy to program or automate and that is an edge. The way Gabriel designed the course feels so natural and looks on surface easy once explained. But this is same when watching top sports player - all looks easy. Now one thing is to watch and second is to become top player. The follow-up support and coaching is designed to do just that - I find this brilliant!

Top Ten Reasons to Trade Forex by Gabriel:
As recently as the early 2000s, a “veil of mystery” shrouded Forex trading.
Many traders had beliefs that sounded something like these:
- Forex is the “supreme discipline” of banks & hedge funds… I am just an individual trader.
- A 24 hour-market? How will I work and sleep if I have to watch the market around the clock?
- Trading currencies mean trading entire economies... that’s too much to follow or understand.
- I have too little capital to be able to compete on a level playing field with the big boys.
Fast forward to now — I still hear those kinds of statements today even though everything about the currency market has completely changed. What is the reality of Forex trading then today? Since the US federal government deregulated Forex trading (Foreign Exchange or FX) for retail traders in 2000 (the CFMA act), the market has more than quadrupled in size and transformed completely making it easily accessible to retail traders.
If you aren’t trading Forex in any way right now, here are the Top Ten Reasons why you should consider it:
1. Have you ever been stuck in a position overnight dreading the large gap at the open?
FX is a very large, very liquid market that trades around the clock, so opening gaps are effectively eliminated during the week.
2. How often do you have trouble finding a decent trend?
You can always find good trends in FX because oceans of money are flowing between countries as the relative strength of their economies changes constantly. In addition, the wide-array of the timeframe to trade will allow you to always identify a trend.
3. What if you can only trade for the part of the day that doesn’t work well (or doesn’t work at all) for your market?
Trade the 24h FX-market at a time of the day that fits your schedule best. Gabriel has students all around the world trading FX in their individual timezone wherever they might live.
4. Are you tired of slippage, partial fills, and running up large trading commissions and fees?
You get low cost, commission-free and efficient order management in FX. The market being extremely liquid, partial fills and slippage is nothing to worry about. As a nice bonus, you do not need to pay any data fees a real-time data is for free.
5. Do you ever enter a position that just doesn't seem to follow the pattern you are trading?
FX makes an ideal market for charting and pattern trading from 5min to Monthly charts because of its consistency. It is a cruise-ship type of market – once it starts moving, it is not easily turned around. Strong and smooth trends over extended periods of time are not uncommon.
6. Do most of your trading candidates seem to move together — and not offer setups on a frequent enough interval?
Most currency pair prices move independently. There is no overall index, or sector, that influences price changes. The Price Patterns tell the Story and one only needs to listen to what they have to say – then trading becomes not only fun, but easy.
7. Does your net worth decrease when your home country currency weakens?
This is a risk that US-based investors are facing as the USD should weaken considerably over the coming decade. FX offers the ultimate way to diversify your net worth and hedge your country-risk to it. Hedge a weakening currency or profit from it by trading it rather than simply watching it fall.
8. How often do large, swift price moves surprise you and you can’t "get out of the way" quickly enough?
Due to the huge size and liquidity of FX, price movements tend to be smoother than in most other markets (pronounced gaps or even price slippage are uncommon). This makes FX the ideal asset class to trade both big size as well as learn how-to-trade it (with a small account).
9. Do you think you understand Tharp Think principles and wonder how to put them to use?
Tharp Think principles apply better to FX than with any other asset class. You can position size very well even when trading a very small real-money account.
10. Whether you are a long-term trend follower, a fundamentals analyst, or a pure technician, does your preferred approach not work so well in your preferred market? Do so-called successful strategies not seem to fit you?
Out of any asset class, FX allows you the most flexibility to choose a trading style and a timeframe that fits you best.
“Given this powerful list, why aren’t you trading Forex or at least planning to?” — Gabriel
