This “real-life” course is an important follow-on learning experience in several regards. Gabriel is a rule-based discretionary trader—the type of trader that Dr. Tharp has found to be the most successful. Discretion does not mean doing whatever you feel like at the moment. Instead, Tharp Think principles describe discretion as a means to use rules in a disciplined and logical manner complemented by experience and intuition. For a trading system with discretionary rules, there are conditions and parameters for the discretion.

The process of mastering discretion is iterative and reinforces Van Tharp's trading concepts and tools. You will see, understand and apply this Tharp Think Principle as well as others as part of the course. Whether you consider yourself a trader or an investor, a full time professional or a part-time trader, Futures markets offer ample flexibility to fit your preferred style. One of the goals of the two-day workshop is “generating positive R-multiples” but more important, you will take home a full array of “AHA!” moments and learning experiences that will help you execute much more effectively when you are back home. These live trading days will give you the opportunity to accelerate your progress to “unconscious competence” for trading your new systems. Once achieved, flawless execution and consistent profitability become reality.

What to Expect

The Futures Trading Workshop is the classroom training course which teaches basics about trading futures markets and specifics for three trading systems. This Futures Live Trading Workshop is the hands-on training where you apply and execute the Futures systems you just learned.

Gabriel will discuss and demonstrate trading the three systems in different timeframes and in different futures contracts. The Live Trading course is an in-the-market learning experience where students have a master coach by their side and are able to apply the trading concepts in the real world — in real time.

Workshop Structure

Gabriel’s systems are based on visual chart pattern recognition. As such, train your eyes with an experienced coach in the room will enable you to detect trade opportunities. You will apply the rule-set to identify the different setups and entry signals. You will also perform entries and exits in the live markets.

Based on how the markets open and react on the morning of the first day, you will craft your weekly and daily trading plan by applying Gabriel’s three Futures systems. You will trade your own platform with your own money (“paper trading” recommended), all under the guidance of Gabriel who will offer thorough direction and individualized feedback. Gabriel will monitor the markets, analyze charts, and execute trades on the big screen in the front of the workshop room.

The structure of the day: trading preparation process (meditation, mental rehearsal etc.)

  • Early morning analysis of the 26 most liquid Futures markets in various timeframes (5min, 15min, 1h, 4h, Daily, Weekly & Monthly charts), Elaboration of a trading plan with trade/investing opportunities on various timeframes
  • Running through the screening process and tools that Gabriel uses to detect opportunities prior to the open,
  • Execution of the trading systems in the live markets (from setup to stalking entry to monitoring to exiting),
  • Documenting trade data and R multiples by using a trading journal and or trading log,
  • End of day debriefing for the day’s activities including lessons learned and reviewing opportunities for the next day.

At the workshop, traders are invited to share their observations and collaborate with others in the room. The group will prepare their daily & weekly trading plans with Gabriel’s guidance and then call out their observations and trade opportunities during the live markets. Often, pairs or smaller groups of traders form which better enable mutual learning. At the end of the day, the trade results and lessons learned are shared amongst the entire group. 


Your Benefits

  • See, understand & apply the systems with their specific patterns and indicator setup,
  • Become familiar with the complete daily trading process from preparation, through execution and to the debrief,
  • Learn appropriate Position Sizing strategies and risk control methods,
  • Use of an elaborate exit algorithm that applies for all kinds of markets,
  • Record trades in a trading journal and why a trade log offers an edge,
  • Learn about additional tools and techniques you can use at home to get a faster start.

Over the years, we have repeatedly had workshop students who have been unable to attend the Live Trading class but come back in the following year just to sit in on this workshop. Gabriel has observed that those who attend the Live Trading course have a higher probability to follow-through trading the systems at home successfully. Why? Because, through their own personal experience, they know that the systems work and they know exactly what to do day-to-day. They also learned at the Live Trading workshop how to apply the rule-set and the use the psychological dynamics of the patterns. Gabriel’s guidance has helped them implement the systems in a faster, easier and more profitable way.

Note to novice traders: Gabriel highly recommends this Live Trading workshop for novice traders so you can jumpstart your trading activity — not just your knowledge about trading. If you want to learn from a renowned master and improve your trading, enroll now.
