He has collected over 5,000 successful trading profiles by studying and researching individual traders and investors, including many of the top traders and investors in the world. From these studies he developed a model for successful trading and investing that other people can adopt and learn. He has developed a five-volume Peak Performance Home Study Course, that teaches the results of this 10-year study. He also developed the Investment Psychology Inventory Profile to help people better understand their strengths and challenges in relation to trading or investing.
He has developed a course, “How to Develop a Winning Trading System That Fits You”, and written and published The Definitive Guide to Position Sizing™.
He published the Market Mastery newsletter for over 10 years and now publishes a weekly e-newsletter, Tharp’s Thoughts. Dr. Tharp wanted to get the vital information that traders needed to as many people as possible; therefore, he decided to offer his newsletter at no charge. Before that, subscriptions to his newsletters were as much as $249 per year.
