Forex Trading Workshop
Presented by Gabriel Grammatidis
Learn to Trade Three Forex Trading Systems with an Edge
Have you seen the headlines about currency rate fluctuations?
Does trading Forex seem different enough from your current market that you've stayed away from it?
Join us for this three-day workshop and leave prepared to trade the system right away.
Plus, we now offer two days of live Forex trading so you can trade the systems live!
Over the coming years, Van Tharp foresees excellent trading opportunities in the currency market because of several big-picture forces. Primarily, central banks will continue their attempts to influence the relative value of their currencies against other currencies. Combine that with the imbalances caused by trade and debt levels and we have a currency market that promises to remain lively for some time to come.
The Theory: All You Need to Know About Forex
Gabriel will spend most of the workshop teaching his trend-following systems. The first half day is spent to go over the specifics of trading the Forex market and cover such topics as:
Gabriel will discuss a number of Forex trading ideas at his workshop and teach three specific trading systems. All three are trend-based; you can see the price action patterns in the price charts. His systems can be traded in various timeframes and can be traded across a wide range of currency pairs. Attendees of Gabriel’s workshops enjoy swing trading the systems using primarily 5-min ,15-min, 60-min and Daily candle charts. The trades usually tend to evolve over a timeframe of anywhere from several hours to a couple of days (or even weeks, in the case of strong trends).
All three systems are based on the concept of trend-following. Each system is based on similar “ingredients,” but each has a different recipe to capture a different part of the trend. Consequently, the systems are complementary to each other and together offer several trading setups nearly every day of the year.
Gabriel’s first system, which he developed while in the Super Trader program, is his most mechanical system. It has a high win rate and takes advantage of a common trend occurrence—breakout failures. Watching 15-minute charts and trading only the most liquid currency pairs, the system finds easily more than 100 trades per year. Having a strict rule-set Gabriel is confident that someone with the programming skills could turn it into a well-performing automated trading system.
With System Quality Number™ scores of between 3.7 to over 4.7, all of Gabriel’s systems rank in the "Excellent" category in Van’s trading system classification! You can use position sizing™ strategies to achieve your trading objectives more easily with systems that have a high SQN score. When you get back home, you can adapt the systems to different currency pairs, shorter time frames, longer time frames, or even to different markets! These systems do not only work in Forex but as well on Commodities, Equity indices and less liquid Forex pairs with similarly strong results. Due to the fractal nature of markets the systems work equally well on timeframes as short as a 20-tick chart and as long as end-of-week prices. You have plenty of flexibility to adapt the systems so they fit you.
Here's what one attendee wrote about his experience trading the systems at home:
Practice the Rules for Each System in the Workshop
Have you ever attended a trading workshop that taught a lot of methodology and a bunch of rules, only to find that you had trouble trading it when you got back home because you had so little experience with it? Gabriel had that experience and wants to better prepare the traders at his workshop.
Students in his course come away with a solid understanding of the trading process because they practice the setups, entries and exits in groups with other students in the class. Gabriel makes extensive use of a trading simulator (live history replay) with which actual trades are traded in class as if “live.” So you leave the workshop already having a good idea on how to trade the systems.
After a thorough review of each system, he slowly walks you through a number of trades on each system that has multiple time frame charts—basically the same screen setup that Gabriel uses to identify setups, entries and exits. All of these trades use recorded historical data run on a software system that reproduces the price charts from the date and time in the live market. You will be able to watch the setups happen as he explains how to get ready for and make the entry, and then how to get ready for and make the exit. After walking the class through several simulations, Gabriel involves the students in the decision process for pattern detection, entry and exits as the acquire competence.
When you get home, you’ll already have a good sense of trading each system—which means you’ll have a running start. And just to be sure, Gabriel provides everyone with pages of additional example trades to take home and study.

|Top Ten Reasons to Trade Forex|
Top Ten Reasons to Trade Forex by Gabriel
As recently as the late 1990s, a “veil of mystery” shrouded Forex trading. Many traders had beliefs that sounded something like these:
Fast forward to now — I still hear those kinds of statements today even though everything about the currency market has changed. What is the reality of Forex trading then today? Since the US federal government deregulated Forex trading (Foreign Exchange or FX) for retail traders in 2000 (the CFMA act), the market has more than quadrupled in size and transformed completely making it easily accessible to retail traders.
If you aren’t trading Forex in any way right now, here are the top ten reasons why you should consider it:
1. Have you ever been stuck in a position overnight dreading the large gap at the open?
2. How often do you have trouble finding a decent trend?
3. What if you can only trade for the part of the day that doesn’t work well (or doesn’t work at all) for your market?
4. Are you tired of slippage, partial fills, and running up large trading commissions and fees?
5. Do you ever enter a position that just doesn't seem to follow the pattern you are trading?
6. Do most of your trading candidates seem to move together — and not offer setups on a frequent enough interval?
7. Does your net worth decrease when your home country currency weakens?
8. How often do large, swift price moves surprise you and you can’t "get out of the way" quickly enough?.
9. Do you think you understand Tharp Think principles and wonder how to put them into use?.
10. Whether you are a long term trend follower, a fundamentals analyst, or a pure technician, does your preferred approach not work so well in your preferred market? Do so-called successful strategies not seem to fit you?
Given this powerful list, why aren’t you trading Forex or at least planning to?—Gabriel
