Tharp, Ph.D. October 17, 2018 A note to readers: While Dr. Tharp’s content is timeless, this article is from our newsletter archive and may contain outdated information, missing links or images. In my experience, I find that it is very easy to design a system that will produce great returns (even 100% or more). What’s difficult is actually trading the system and getting those returns. In this article, I’ll show you how easy it is to develop a great system, how mistakes can be your downfall, and how to correct the mistakes you make. Thinking of Your Results in Terms Risk-to-Reward One ..read more

Over Analysis, Over Simplification and Somewhere in Between By D.R. Barton Jr. October 16, 2018 A note to readers: While much of this article’s content is timeless, it is from a past publication and may contain outdated information, missing links or images. The more I trade and interact with other traders (both old and new), the more convinced I become that the markets can best be approached not as a problem to be solved but as a game of understanding group psychology.  Since all of my formal training (chemical engineer, MBA, yada, yada, yada…) is in problem-solving, a market that acts mo ..read more

A note to readers: While Dr. Tharp’s content is timeless, this article is from our newsletter archive and may contain outdated information, missing links or images. As a trader part of your challenge is that you must make decisions based on a large amount of information.

Few investment authorities will admit that most of this information is of low quality and has little predictive value. Since investment information is of such low quality, mental strategies (how you make deci ..read more

A note to readers: While Dr. Tharp’s content is timeless, this article is from our newsletter archive and may contain outdated information, missing links or images. As Byron Katie would say, “Who would you be without your story?”  My goal for every Super Trader 1 candidate is to realize that your experience of life is all made up.  When you get that, you can either make up something much more useful or you can go beyond it – like Neo did in the original Matrix movie.  That idea is a little difficult for most people to digest, but I’m going to help you at least understa ..read more

A note to readers: While Dr. Tharp’s content is timeless, this article is from our newsletter archive and may contain outdated information, missing links or images. Our mission at the Van Tharp Institute is transformation through a trading metaphor.  Today I want to share some thoughts on what that really means. First, let’s look at the roots of the word transformation.   The center of the word is form and to me that refers to the physical form.  You might call that the body you inhabit.   When you identify with your body you do a number of things.  You limit ..read more

A note to readers: While Dr. Tharp’s content is timeless, this article is from our newsletter archive and may contain outdated information, missing links or images. One of the key principles of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is the importance of being in an optimal mental state.   In fact, I recently watched an old edition of the Dr. Oz Show in which Tony Robbins was the guest.   Tony gave a formula for achieving your goals by devoting 5 minutes each morning to three areas: 1) physical activity, 2) gratitude and 3) goals.   Tony was right, the morning routine ..read more

A note to readers: While Dr. Tharp’s content is timeless, this article is from our newsletter archive and may contain outdated information, missing links or images. When Jack Schwager visited Ed Seykota to interview him for his book Market Wizards, Jack found that he was the person being interviewed, not Ed. Jack would start to say things and Ed would indicate how the assumptions behind Jack’s questions revealed his psychological issues. As a result, Jack returned to New York with no interview. Instead, he mailed a set of questions to Ed to answer. Again, Ed turned the questions around to focu ..read more

A note to readers: While Dr. Tharp’s content is timeless, this article is from our newsletter archive and may contain outdated information, missing links or images. When I was in 4th grade, my parents applied for me to attend a famous school in Switzerland but I was rejected because of my grades. In hindsight, I’m glad I was rejected because it changed everything for me. Suddenly grades were important. My best friend in school, Mike Stewart, had an IQ of about 160 and he always got straight A’s. Mike became my first role model. “How did he do it?” became my primary focus. I began to learn what ..read more
