Swing Trade the Stock Market with Confidence
Look, we know there's lots of trading services out there to choose from.
We also know that if you follow a strategy that you don't understand or one that doesn't fit your personality, you'll never make money from it in the long run.
So throughout this page, we want share with you exactly how we trade, what makes us different from everyone else, and how we can help you make money in the stock market.
Our strategy is designed for the trader who wants to be active in the stock market without any day trading or staring at screens all day.
The trades we make fall into two distinct groups.
The first, are quick multi-day setups that last about 2 to 4 trading days, generally utilizing leveraged bull and bear ETFs.
3 Day TQQQ Reversal Trade +5.66% or +2.08R
6 Day USLV Breakout Trade +5.66% or +3.73R
The second group of trades, are slightly longer term, multi-week swing patterns, taken on leading stocks with an average hold time of 2 to 6 weeks.
7 Day P Breakout Trade +10.50% or +1.85R
2 Month XLU Pullback Trade +8.49% or +1.98R
The shorter term tactical trades allow us to react quickly to changing market conditions, serve as great hedges when necessary, and add additional upside leverage during the strongest market environments.
The longer term swings, are designed to pull bigger gains out of already established market leaders.
Do we have losing trades? Absolutely, about 45% of the time. We don't show any here, but trust us, nearly half of the time we do. The key is keeping them small and contained, which we do a great job at.
The types of patterns we swing trade are classic:
But we don't just trade these setups blindly.
We've created our own unique breadth cycles indicator to objectively classify the health of the market environment and guide our overall market exposure.
You can read more about how our cycles work here, but here is an example of our short-term breadth cycle overlaid on the SPY throughout 2016:
So what else makes us different?
We really trade.
This isn't just a watch list service filled with general "buy above this level" recommendations, you will get all of our swing trades in real time and with exact fills.
We make about 10 to 20 swing trades every month, and all of our entries are placed at the end of the trading day.
We see ourselves as a great fit for:
- Traders who want to follow a repeatable process with profitable alerts.
- Traders who work full time jobs or don't want to stare at screens all day.
- Traders who don't have a 25K account for PDT rule.
- Traders who want to diversify their trading with our end of day signals.
- Traders who want a second set of eyes for spotting trade opportunities.
If you are looking for a way to get rich quick, or never take a losing trade again, then sorry, we're not the solution for you.
Here's a look at our performance since we began offering swing alerts in 2015.
Notice we do have losing months and periods of draw-down, but overall it's contained, and our equity curve trends up and to the right.
"Evan provides me the cool-calm-collected thought process that I need in volatile markets. His free information was helpful, but his premium service is where you get his well thought out trade alerts. Working a full time job, I don’t have the time to do all the research needed to be consistent. Evan's alerts make it easy for me to punch in the trades at work. Just don’t tell my boss ;-)"
"Evan's personal mentoring and availability via email greatly improved my trading and helped me get most out my trades. Couldn't have asked for a better wingman to watch my tail as I tackle ETFs intraday and then take his swing trades near end of the day."
"I have been following Evan’s service for more than 4 months and the result have been more than satisfactory and so to speak, very profitable.
Evan’s daily commentary helps navigate through the market changes and assess one’s trading plan when to get aggressive and when to be conservative.
I would recommend Evan’s service to all my friends interested in stock trading. For traders looking for momentum, Evan’s service is definitely the one to go for. "
Hopefully we've done a good job at describing how we trade and what we're all about at The Trade Risk.
