We are the Trade Risk

An independent financial media company that publishes research and analysis about the stock market and develops tools and strategies to assist DIY investors.

Our mission is to provide retail traders with the tools, resources, and education needed to become successful and confident, rules-based investors.

What we believe

History has shown that dollar-cost-averaging into the stock market is a great way to build wealth over time and achieve your long-term savings and retirement goals. For most people, this is the best approach.

But for those brave investors who want to take control over their finances in order to outperform the market, generate income, or simply reduce the large and painful drawdowns of buy and hold, Trade Risk is here to help you.

We believe the best way to achieve your investing goals is to be as data-driven and rules-based as possible so that you can find an edge in the market, maintain discipline, and keep the self-destructive behavioral biases away.

How we can help

  • For traders who want to save time and access Trade Risk's top-rated market research, you can sign up for one of our turn-key trading systems to help manage your own portfolio.
  • We are the leading third-party developers for the Worden TC2000 platform and we have dozens of premium stock scans, indicators, and layouts to help DIY technical traders maximize their potential and get the most out of the software.
  • We believe that free education and resources are essential. Join the thousands of traders who watch our Stock Market Weekly videos every Friday and learn from our tutorials, interviews, and long-form articles.

More about Evan Medeiros

Evan began trading the stock market in 2009, while still working full-time as a software developer. He got his start in the fast-paced world of day trading stocks and options where he learned foundational lessons on risk management, behavioral biases, and how to blow up trading accounts.

In 2012, Evan launched the Trade Risk blog to journal what he was observing and learning in the stock market. Leveraging his 25+ years of coding, Evan began building a catalog of automated trading tools, stock scans, and custom indicators for himself and like-minded technical traders. 

Given his impact in the trading community, Evan has been identified by Stocktwits as a "Suggested and Recommended" follower. He’s had his research published in Stocks & Commodities Magazine and his market analysis has shown up on TradingView’s “Editor Picks”.

Evan has helped tens of thousands of retail traders achieve greater results in the stock market and has consulted with hedge funds, RIAs, and family offices to optimize their trading operations and conduct market research.
