We go deep into our trading framework on this page, and we share our entire trade history, trade walkthrough videos, and overall performance on this page.

Evan Medeiros

Evan Medeiros has a B.S. degree in Computer Science and formerly worked as a software developer and online poker no-limit hold’em grinder. Blending a systematic framework from his years writing code with the fast-paced decision making acquired on the poker tables, Evan ventured into financial markets in 2009 to pursue a career trading stocks.

Evan began publicly journaling his trading experiences in 2012 which paved the way to starting his company, The Trade Risk, to inform and service others navigating markets. Over the course of his time as a trader educator, he has helped hundreds of traders achieve better results.

Currently, Evan manages trading accounts for family and friends, offers premium trading services at The Trade Risk, and actively publishes research and market analysis on his blog. When he’s not at his desk staring at charts, you can usually find him at a nearby coffee shop, or walking his not-always-friendly half lab, half retriever pup around the neighborhood.

Evan has organized monthly trader meetup groups all over the country for the past several years and has written close to 1,000 articles and recorded hundreds of hours of video on trading, market analysis, and education. He has been identified by Stocktwits as a Suggested and Recommended follower.
