Helping others become the best trader or investor they can be has been Tharp's mission since 1982. Dr. Tharp offers unique learning strategies, and his trading education techniques for producing great traders are some of the most effective in the field. He teaches a set of ideas and principles called "Tharp Concepts." These principles take the mystery out of trading by helping you understand who you are as a trader, how your personal psychology can work for you instead of against you, how to think about and manage risk, and how to develop a winning trading system.

"Trading and investing are very simple processes and we human beings try to make it into something much more complex. Unfortunately, we have a lot of biases that enter into trading decisions.

"I believe people get exactly what they want out of the markets and most people are afraid of success or failure or both. As a result, they tend to resist change and continue to follow their natural biases and lose in the markets. When you get rid of the fear, you tend to get rid of the biases.

"As for risk, most people don't understand it, including a lot of professionals, and what's really interesting is that once you understand risk and portfolio management, you can design a trading system with almost any level of performance." —Van K. Tharp

While Van Tharp's expertise is in the area of finance, his mission is to touch people in a way that changes them for the better. Through his books, study programs, and workshops, you will learn about system development, position sizing, risk control, R-multiples, the psychology of trading and much, much more!
