(From The Jacket) – How do you transform yourself from mild-mannered investor to Super Trader? Think clearly. Plan accordingly. Commit completely. In other words, become a trader. And no one is better suited to help you make the transformation than legendary trading educator and author Van K. Tharp.
Combining the sharp insight and technical brilliance that has drawn legions of investors to his books and seminars, Tharp provides a holistic approach for becoming a successful full-time trader. His system — a meld of investing psychology and sound trading practice — is the secret to achieving optimum conditions that produce results in both bull and bear markets.
Using the lessons of “Super Trader”, you will approach trading as you would a small business — realistically, systematically, and enthusiastically. Drawing on his decades of experience, Tharp has created a simple plan designed to help anyone master the market. You can put this plan to use immediately in order to:
- Master the psychology of trading
- Craft a “business plan” — a working document to guide your trading
- Develop a trading system tailored for your personal needs and skills
- Create position-sizing strategies to meet your objectives
- Monitor yourself constantly to minimize mistakes
Throughout the book, Tharp asks the pertinent questions you must ask yourself about becoming a trader, being a trader, and succeeding as a trader.
The rewards that come with being a Super Trader — both financial and personal — make you feel as if you can leap small buildings in a single bound. Whatever your skill level, Tharp provides the formula for succeeding in a field where most people fail.
