(From The Jacket) – In the sci-fi movie classic The Matrix, the hero, Neo, was given a choice: take the red pill and see the world as it truly is, or take the blue pill and wake up in his bed believing whatever he wants to believe. Of course, Neo takes the red pill, and the adventure begins. Now, what if there were a real Matrix and a real red pill?
A trading and investing guide unlike any other, “Trading Beyond the Matrix” is your red pill. It invites you to see a new world if you have the courage to free yourself from a lifetime of programmed thinking about what’s possible and what’s not, including what you deserve out of life. Discover new ways to dramatically improve your trading results and your overall financial well-being by looking within yourself and shining a light on the engrained ideas, beliefs, and perceptions that influence every one of your trading decisions and that may keep you from the success you deserve.
Written by the legendary Dr. Van K. Tharp, “Trading Beyond the Matrix” is the culmination of his thirty years spent helping traders become the very best they can be. He has observed traders progress through a journey of three stages, the first of which is “Tharp Think.” At this initial stage, you will learn a set of powerful rules that Dr. Tharp developed during his financial modeling work with numerous Super Traders. Time and again, these rules have been proven to deliver big returns for traders who understand how to apply them.
On the next leg of your journey, you will take your first giant step on the road to transforming yourself as a trader. You’ll learn to take a hard look at your fixed beliefs about trading and the markets, where they come from, and you’ll begin to understand that, in Dr. Tharp’s words, “You don’t trade the markets, you trade your beliefs about the markets.” You also will learn to identify which beliefs are healthy, productive ones and which aren’t and begin to release yourself from their hold. And that’s just the beginning of your transformational journey taking the red pill.
In the final stage of your journey, you will begin to awaken to life beyond the Matrix. Like Neo, you will learn to transcend your programming and discover the true power lying dormant within you. Here Dr. Tharp arms you with the tools you need to take an evolutionary leap forward as a trader — and as a person.
More than just another collection of “surefire” trading strategies and techniques, Trading Beyond the Matrix takes you on a journey of self-discovery, during which you will come to understand who you really are, how your personal psychology affects your every decision, and what, with Dr. Tharp’s guidance, you can become: whatever you desire . . . even a Super Trader.
