Responsible Trading For Active Investors


At The Trade Risk, we believe there is a better way to trade. Free from the distraction of news, emotional bias, and loads of confusing technical indicators, our focus is exclusively on price and volume. What are people willing to pay for a stock and how aggressively do they want it?

We're not interested in trying to get rich quick or gamble with our money, we are here to trade responsibly and generate consistent profits for the long haul. We are excited to simplify the stock market for traders through our blog, newsletter, and trading services.


We are end of day swing traders who specialize in capturing brief periods of strong momentum across leading stocks and ETFs.

Trades last anywhere from just a few days all the way up to a couple of months, depending on the timeframe and the market’s cooperation.

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.


We've published over 1,000 articles on our blog analyzing markets, sharing trading tips, and a whole lot more. Our most popular long-form trading education lessons can be found in our Learning Center.

Our YouTube Channel has 400+ videos filled with in-depth weekly market recaps, actionable trade ideas, live broadcasts, and educational lessons.

We publish a free weekly e-mail newsletter where we package up our best content, include some unique ideas, and send it out on weekends to prepare you for the trading week ahead.

For traders who want to participate in the Tactical Price Momentum strategy that we trade ourselves, there are trade alert memberships available.  We also have automated trading tools and TC2000 scans available for download.


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 over 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.
