The two most important things every trader needs:
The Right Set of Stocks to Trade
Regardless of the underlying trading strategy, we all want the same thing: volatile stocks that move around a lot and/or stocks that consistently trend for long periods of time. There's nothing worse than owning a stock that doesn't move, chops sideways, or simply has long term trends stacked against our outlook. Find out how the The Trade Risk's Leadership Watchlist curates the ideal trading vehicles.
The Right Position Size for the Opportunity
Position size (aka risk management) is the single most important concept to get right as a trader. Risk too much and even the most profitable strategies can result in ruin. Risk too little and your account balance will be treading water for long periods of time. The Trade Risk's Position Size Calculator is precise, customizable, and will save you loads of time entering positions.
Every week we run a through a series of custom screens used to identify top-performing market leaders. Our screens focus on high beta sectors, long term trend, and a fundamental growth profile.
We call this a leadership watchlist because the stocks on this list are the ones pushing the market higher and holding up best in the face of broad market volatility and declines. We typically have anywhere from 50 to 100 names on this watchlist at any given time.
If you’re looking for a fresh and consistent source of quality swing trade ideas and a universe of names to scan for setups and uncover opportunity, this is it.
Position Size Calculator
This isn't your basic (stop - entry) = position size calculator.
The Trade Risk's position size calculator is a bit more sophisticated and is designed specifically for swing and position traders.
The calculator uses multiple risk management constraints such as the volatility of the underlying instrument, fixed fractional position sizing, instrument type, and more, to arrive at the optimal position size tailored to your specific risk tolerance and account size.
The purpose is to leave you with a meaningful yet responsible amount of exposure in your trades so that you can sleep easy at night.
An absolute time saver and a must-have resource.
