Most people start trading by opening a brokerage account, making a lot of trades, and losing a lot of money in the process. How do we know this? Many traders find the Van Tharp Institute after they have paid many (many!) thousands of dollars of tuition to the market. If you have enough money and time, you might learn enough in the markets to trade successfully—eventually. But there is an easier way: prepare to trade before you start.
Dr. Tharp believes that you need to put as much effort into your trading education as you would entering any other profession, and the best way to do that is to make sure you know the basics. This course guides you step-by-step through the basics necessary to begin trading: markets, trading systems, order types, trading psychology, business planning, and much, much more. Knowing how to trade properly from the start can reduce your losses, increase your profits, and prevent a lot of stress.
“I just completed the ABC’s of Trading seminar and have also read a couple different books from your products list, and I have to say that it is very refreshing to hear a realistic approach to trading. I have steered away from these type of investments for years but saw some of your introductory material online, and it sounded so grounded that I thought I might read some of your material.
I also appreciated the psychology teachings, and it has now challenged me in several areas of my life to take more responsibility and make something happen. I am very encouraged and appreciate all you are doing to help people improve themselves and their opportunities to make a living. Very well taught, and very well thought out. Definitely worth the money. Already, what I have learned I can see will make a definite impact on my financial future. I will be purchasing many of your products and hope to attend some of your workshops as I learn more about trading.”
