the Van Tharp Institute Presenting:


Sideways Market Strategies

Profit When Price Goes Nowhere:
How to Successfully Trade
Sideways Markets In Every Time Frame


Dear Traders and Investors,

I normally communicate our workshops’ value in a specific way, sharing with you a number of details about the concepts and trading systems you will learn about when you come to Cary, NC.

However, because of what one of my Super Trader graduates has discovered about trading sideways markets, I felt it was imperative to go beyond just the concepts; I wanted to share with you some of the unique benefits you will receive when you attend our newest workshop on this often misunderstood market type.

If you haven’t experienced Sideways markets for yourself, you will soon discover that they occur a lot more frequently and last longer than most traders realize. If you learn how to successfully trade in sideways conditions, you will find multiple opportunities to profit while dramatically increasing your chances for long-term trading success.

This new workshop has been specifically designed to give all traders the courage and confidence they need to profitably trade in this environment. Please read on to learn more about this unique opportunity. —Van Tharp

Consider These Questions:

  • Whatever time frame you trade, are you having feelings of uncertainty, frustration, or annoyance?
  • Are you hoping for a bigger change in trend or volatility?
  • Do you have a need to make something happen?
  • Are your stress levels increasing, making it even more difficult?

How about your systems…

  • Are you sure that they are the right choice for this market type?
  • Are they performing as expected in this whipsaw action?
  • How about during periods of extremely low volatility?
  • If not, do you have specific systems designed for this unique market type?
  • Engineered to perform extremely well in this environment?
  • Easing both your stress and uncertainty, all while delivering consistent R?

Understand What You Are Looking At:

For most of you reading this, you understand the methods and concepts of trading trending markets, whether a Bull or a Bear. Teaching the useful beliefs, mindsets, and strategies of great traders to others has been the main goal of the Van Tharp Institute for 35 years.
With that said, take a look at this diagram…

As you can see, there are a number of ways this market could develop.

It could stay a Bull after going Sideways a while, or it could go full-on Bear before turning Sideways again.

The key here is the number of time the markets spend going nowhere…

No matter what time frame you trade or what method you use to measure them, Sideways markets happen between 59% and 65% of the time!


And even though they appear a majority of the time, Sideways markets are rarely discussed, even in professional trading circles.

Why?

There are a number of valid possibilities, including:

  • They can be hard to recognize, making it difficult to enter and exit effectively
  • They usually don’t offer large R multiples-think more singles and doubles
  • They demand a completely different mindset to trade well
  • They are considered the “Rodney Dangerfield” of markets and do not get the respect they deserve
  • They require an extraordinary level of commitment to developing winning systems
  • With these various beliefs about Sideways markets and the scant attention given to them in general, you are not likely to learn the specific techniques and skillsets needed to trade this market type from a position of strength and confidence. When you encounter them (and you will between 59% and 65% of the time) the task of trading becomes much more challenging, stressing your systems and your psychology beyond your normal comfort zone.

Success is Possible in Sideways Markets

We know you have choices when it comes to learning how to trade the markets. Information, both good and bad is online and readily available.

But we believe we can offer you much more than just information…

Like an opportunity to work with a genuine leader… a true mentor.

Someone who offers to:

  • Easily explain the market cycle and what to monitor in terms of the Big Picture, giving you a distinct edge
  • Work directly with you to develop a sideways market trading plan for your time-frame
  • Provide you with various strategies so that you can trade this market type with confidence
  • Commit to working with you after the workshop to ensure your success
  • At VTI, we had been looking for someone to take up the challenge of teaching these specific market methods, including the unique mental states, beliefs, and strategies necessary to successfully trade Sideways markets.

The best traders and investors, including those from past Super Trader classes, understood what a large undertaking it was to develop the techniques needed to effectively trade this market type successfully.

What was required was someone with a high level of dedication…

Who possessed a true commitment to the process…

And a passion for teaching.


We needed someone uniquely qualified and someone who was ready to dedicate themselves to this complex task…
And now we've found her....

Introducing Kim Andersson.

Kim is a Super Trader Graduate from VTI. Before she completed her studies with us, she had earned a Masters in Systems Engineering - which is no small feat! She has also served as an IT Security Consultant to the Pentagon, while also performing her duties with the Canadian Air Force.

She currently works as a Cyber Security Engineer at Lockheed Martin/Leidos and trades her systems part-time, finding a work/life balance that works for her and her family.

With over 1,850 trades completed, Kim has the solutions AND THE EXPERIENCE to lead you in a Sideways Market.

She has put in a tremendous amount of work and effort in to bringing this unique training out into the open. Originally designed with our Super Traders in mind, Kim and I decided to develop this material so that all traders or investors could come to the workshop and take home this critical information on this underappreciated market type.

This means that enrollment is limited as many seats will be filled with students from our elite Super Trader program.


If you think you are ready for a fast-paced, hands-on event hosted by an instructor, 100% dedicated to teaching you how to effectively trade Sideways markets, make plans to join us and register today!

Register soon for the best discounts and secure your seat in the class.

  • What useful beliefs you MUST have to successfully trade Sideways markets
  • Learn what volatility is like over 70% of the time in this particular sideways market type
  • Understand the impact that changes in volatility and interest rates have on your options values

On day 2, Kim will spend the entire day getting into all of the systems and strategies you need to take advantage of sideways markets, from cash alternatives to advanced options techniques.

  • Discover Kim’s Strategic System Chart to tell you EXACTLY when to use a specific system, given volatility and time-frame traded (Absolute Gold!)

Finally- on day 3, you will put into practice what you have learned and trade intraday in a simulated environment, so you can:

  • Execute your own trades in both Sideways quiet and Sideways volatile markets
  • Understand how your own psychology works in this market type

  • Why caring for yourself gives you a true edge over other traders in ALL timeframes

  • How to use Mark Cuban’s 12 Rules for Start-ups in your trading business
  • How great traders ensure victory with the concepts of Tharp Think
  • Why NOT defining each of the 11 parts of your system leads to guaranteed failure
  • Why this Van Tharp secret is the “linchpin” to your trading success

As a Super Trader graduate, Kim knows and understands that if you adopt the beliefs, mental states, and strategies of exceptional traders, you can achieve similar exceptional results.

Q and A With Your Instructor, Kim Andersson:

Q: How many systems and what kinds of strategies will we be learning?

A: I will teach 5 different day trading systems, as well as a version of Ken Long’s channeling system. We will also cover various options strategies including calendar spreads, condors, butterflies, strangles, and straddles. For long-term investors and investment accounts, we will cover 4 different systems designed for all market types.


Q: What is the expectancy of the systems?

A: I prefer to use SQN (System Quality Number) when quantifying my system performance, because it takes into consideration the standard deviation of the results. Results for a few of the systems that will be covered in the sideways workshop are as follows: Bounce has an SQN of 4.6, ARLS has an SQN of 3.9, RSI2: 3.5, Z3PO: 3.3, Kirk’s Fake Out system: 2.9, and Ken’s Channeling system: 4.3.


Q: What is the required capital needed to trade these systems?

A: It depends greatly on the system you want to trade. If you plan to day trade equities within the US, you need a minimum of $25K but preferably at least $50K. For the longer term and swing trading systems you can get away with a much smaller account; however, lack of diversification and under capitalization become an issue for smaller accounts. I include a couple of great longer-term systems in this workshop that provide built-in diversification, so someone with a small account would not need to worry about those issues.


Q: What markets can the systems be traded in?

A: The systems are designed for equity indices, ETFs, Forex, and individual stocks


Q: What is the minimum risk required per trade?

A: That is entirely up to the individual trader; however, I do not ever risk more than 0.5% of my total equity per position on my day trades and never over 1% per position for swing trades. And I don't recommend more than 10% portfolio heat at any given time.

For anyone who is new to trading, I recommend starting out with paper trading and then moving the risk up slowly to no more than 1% of total equity over several months or even years. I will teach a position sizing technique that ensures that you will never blow up your account, which is particularly important when learning how to trade.


Q: How much trading experience should I have before attending?

A: Attendees at this workshop should understand the various uses of market, stop, and limit orders. Without some previous trading experience, you could be frustrated by the pace of the course and likely unable to realize the full value of the workshop. Options experience, while helpful, is not necessary. I will cover the basic concepts in the workshop.

For students who are also attending Ken Long’s Day Trading Systems workshop before the Sideways workshop, I’m prepared to offer an even better incentive than I typically do to make sure that you do!

We're always happy to offer a combo discount for students who are able to enroll in more than one course back-to-back. For this unique workshop series, we are offering an even more lucrative discount when you attend both workshops. Typically, you'd qualify for a combined $600 discount when attending two workshops.
(Note the optional two days of live day trading are not included in the combo price).

But for a limited time, you will save $1,000 by attending both.

You have a unique opportunity right now to invest in yourself, AND do it at a low price!

When you register now, you’ll not only save $700 off your registration using the early enrollment discount ($1,600 if attending both workshops)…

You’ll get 4 monthly post-workshop calls as well as email access to Kim.
Most of all, you will head home knowing you have all the tools you need to trade Sideways markets with confidence.

I believe this Sideways Market Workshop could be the most important market type technical workshop we have ever put together. With Kim mentoring you, giving you the guidance you need both during and after the event, you are bound to get the tools you need to achieve the results you deserve.

I look forward to seeing you in Cary, NC!

To your success,
Dr. Van Tharp

If you need to bring a laptop, we will let you know. If you want to bring your laptop regardless, you are welcome to do so. The workshop room has ample electrical outlets (international clients: remember to bring your converters for US outlets). Wireless internet connectivity is available. Note that the Peak Performance workshops do not use tables, so we would recommend not bringing laptops to these workshops.

What You Should Do Before Attending 


We highly recommend that you read Dr. Tharp's books before attending a workshop. Ideally we'd like to see you come in having read several of them, but at a minimum read the following.

If you are attending any of the Peak Performance workshops, Oneness, or Blueprint for Trading Success, read Trading Beyond the Matrix first.
