Swing Trade Alerts

Now Featuring: Merlin & Lamorak

Evolution of The Trade Risk

For over a decade, the Trade Risk has been building trading strategies to manage and invest our own money in the stock market. Back in 2014, by request, we released the first public strategy for traders to follow via swing trade alerts.

Since then, we've helped hundreds of traders grow their accounts along side of ours, and throughout that time our strategies have evolved and adapted along with changing market environments. Some of the systems we've built include:

  • Short-term tactical breakout and momentum systems
  • Monthly-only systems
  • Technical pullbacks in uptrends
  • End-of-day only systems
  • Multi-day and multi-week reversal/rotation systems 

Introducing your counsel through the markets

We currently offer two trading systems: Merlin and Lamorak.

Merlin is a fully quantitative long-only strategy that trades individual stocks and equity ETFs.

Lamorak is a fully quantitative long and short strategy that trades Nasdaq 100 and S&P 100 stocks. 

Both trading systems have achieved superior risk adjusted returns for over a decade.

Here's the backtested equity curves for both trading systems. Please reference our performance disclosures for interpreting backtested returns.
