We are the Trade Risk

An independent financial media company that publishes research and analysis about the stock market and specializes in trading education.

Our mission is to help every retail trader become a confident rules-based investor.

What we believe

Actively trading markets is hard. Really hard.

It takes determination to constantly learn, experiment, and keep an open mind in order to succeed as a trader. For those who accept the challenge, we believe traders should strive to be as close to 100% rules-based as possible in order to maintain discipline and keep the self-destructive behavioral biases away.

What we do

We analyze the stock market through the lens of technical analysis and build quantitative trading tools, scans, and systems to help traders develop their own strategies.

How we trade

We build our own fully rules-based trading systems. Each system is designed to be simple, highly automated, and specialized to do well in specific market environments.

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 20+ years of coding, Evan built a library 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”.

Over the course of his time as an educator, he has helped tens of thousands of traders achieve greater results. 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.
