I was searching the 'net trying to find out something about Van Tharp's trading record, because I remember his son, Rob, claiming that he had started trading his own account. (Anyone have any info on this?) I didn't find anything about his trading record, but I came across this ad for his new book. I must say I'm pretty disappointed, as the whole thing sounds like A-grade snake oil. Check it out here I'm inclined to believe Tharpy isn't doing jack with his own trading if he has to resort to the above crap to make a buck.
