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! Click for more info 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. Add to this attractive volatility one important, very practical and positive point for individuals: Forex has evolved into a market in which individual investors can trade efficiently.
That wasn't always the case. It used to make little sense for individual traders to trade currencies because you had to have a significant amount of capital to open a Forex trading account, which were only available at big money-center banks. The expansion of the Forex market over the last decade, however, has made the Forex market very accessible with low transaction costs and easy to navigate for individuals.
This large group of retail traders has complemented the ever-existent institutional trading to create an even larger and more liquid market for currency exchange. Van Tharp Institute clients have been requesting a Forex trading workshop consistently for the last few years. Now we're proud to present a three-day workshop that will show you what it takes to trade Forex and send you home with three trading systems—and even a good amount of hands-on trading experience through simulation.
Plus two days of add-on live trading if you choose! Your presenter, Gabriel Grammatidis, is specialized in designing trading systems based on chart analysis for the Forex market. He has worked very closely with Van Tharp over a good number of years. Gabriel now wants to reveal some of his best trading systems with you. He has a passion in teaching people and seeing them grow in many aspects of their lives. Gabriel has a varied and fascinating background. Since his adolescence he enjoyed investing in options, stocks and ETFs.
His passion for the capital markets led him, after his degree in business administration, to seek a job in the Asset Management industry.
Gabriel decided to pursue his passion for the capital markets by enrolling in Dr. Born in Switzerland of Greek and German parents, Gabriel has always felt a natural attraction to the international nature of the currency markets. The hour Forex spot cash market allows him to apply his systems to various timeframes from very short-term to Weekly charts at any time of the day that best fits his lifestyle.
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. 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. Consequently, the systems are complementary to each other and together offer several trading setups nearly every day of the year. It has a high win rate and takes advantage of a common trend occurrence—breakout failures. Watching minute charts and trading only the most liquid currency pairs, the system finds easily more than 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.
His second system is based on price breakouts, which are very easy to spot on the charts. This system requires a bit more experience to trade profitably than his first system. Gabriel's third system requires more "hands-on" attention. It uses tight stops, so it has the lowest win rate of his three systems. However, because it provides about trades per year just on the big currency pairs , it is the most profitable and prolific system for traders with some experience and discretion.
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 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:. Taking out trader inefficiency, after the second month I have been able to replicate Gabriel's own results in terms of win rate, expectancy and SQN. This is the sort of super performance I always dreamed of.
I no longer have time to waste, I have a very clear idea of what needs to be done to improve my trading and I am motivated to achieve my goals. I am a dramatically improved trader right now, and I have Gabriel to thank for it. I consider myself an accomplished system builder and there is no way I could ever come up with a system as well thought out as Gabriel's. It is a testament to the super trader process, which I follow faithfully.
Gabriel has been extremely helpful after the seminar also, critiquing my trades, and I am extremely grateful to have met him. 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.
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. And just to be sure, Gabriel provides everyone with pages of additional example trades to take home and study.
G, Las Vegas, NV. I would like to attend a longer workshop with Gabriel. Do more of these. 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?

FX is a very large, very liquid market that trades around the clock so opening gaps are effectively eliminated. You can always find good trends in FX because oceans of money are flowing between countries as the relative strength of their economies changes constantly.
