This home study course is Dr. Tharp’s masterpiece. It’s designed for all levels of investors and traders—beginners, advanced, unsuccessful traders seeking to improve their performance, and successful traders who want to be more successful.

It contains five books by Dr. Tharp, and four CDs. These CDs help guide you through exercises in the course on such topics as: how you think when you make profits and lose money; stress reduction; programming yourself not to repeat your mistakes; and trading unemotionally.

Dr. Tharp carefully crafted the information from his studies into a model that people like you can use to improve your skills and increase profits.
