What Lamorak subscribers are saying

"I have tried other services like the Trade Risk's in the recent past and none comes close.

The long and short system is well-organized, giving me plenty of time to prepare for its recommendations, and has excellent picks. I've made monies from TR's system and I have only used it in full for about 1-1.5 months.

And, of course, excellent customer service! Anytime I have a question, either Evan or someone from his team will reply quickly."

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a quantitative strategy? What are the benefits?

A quantitative strategy means all of the buy and sell decisions are based strictly on mathematical computations and probabilities. There’s no gut feel or subjective analysis – the system contains all of the rules to make the best decisions possible..

There are many benefits of quantitative trading:

  • Decisions are based on real research and extensive testing of historical markets
  • 100% discipline, the system always executes flawlessly
  • No emotional biases
  • The strategy is easily measurable and can be enhanced over time

What makes Lamorak extra special is that it was built by a trader first.

Evan’s market observations and live trading for over a decade are at the core of Lamorak's decision making process. That means Lamorak is not just applying random and impossible to explain mathematical theory, instead, it’s a simple system based on how markets really work.

Do I need to download any code or use a certain broker?

No, absolutely not.

We’re doing all of the heavy lifting and number crunching for you. Internally, we have the Lamorak algorithm running in real-time measuring and monitoring markets and systematically producing signals.

As a subscriber, all you need to do is log in to your Trade Risk dashboard each night to see what the trading system has generated for signals. You can follow along at your own pace and place orders with any broker of your choosing.

Can you tell me more about how Lamorak trades?

Lamorak is a long/short algorithm that takes advantage of volatility when stocks have moved too far and too fast in one direction. It is unlike most trading strategies because it doesn't need strong healthy uptrends to make money. This is a tactical swing trading system that does best during sideways markets and high volatility. 

Lamorak trades large cap liquid stocks in the Nasdaq 100 and S&P100 indices. All signals are generated using daily closing prices. That means you won't have to watch markets throughout the trading day. You can place all of your Lamorak orders after the market closes and be fully prepared for the next session.

The strategy has been backtested and validated across thousands of individual stocks with careful considerations not to data mine or overfit.

Can I trade Lamorak without margin or in my retirement account?

Yes and no.

When you become a Lamorak subscriber, you'll learn about our easy to follow position sizing guide, which you can easily modify to make sure you don't use any margin in your account.

However, since Lamorak shorts stocks, which requires margin, you will not be able to participate in short signals if you're trading in a retirement or cash settled account since shorting (margin) is not allowed. 

What is the minimum account size for Lamorak?

Lamorak is a professional trading strategy that focuses on producing strong risk-adjusted returns. It’s designed to scale and handle large account sizes. 

Account minimums are a personal decision and will vary greatly from trader to trader depending on your circumstances, goals, and risk tolerance. Here are some general guidelines to get the most out of the Lamorak trading service.
