Welcome to FIT.

You likely know me from my YouTube videos and I thank you for considering joining the FAM.

My background is in Leadership both Hospitality and Finance. I spent 7 years working for BMO Bank of Montreal and was voted LEADER OF THE YEAR IN 2016. I decided to fulfill my dreams in 2017 when I took the entrepreneur route and created FIT.

At FIT I mentor Traders of all skill levels along their true journey to becoming Financially Independent. We focus on Technical Analysis, Fundamental Analysis, and the Psychology of Trading and much more. We are a Community working together and tackling the markets one day at a time.




Restaurant owner turned full time day trader just over 2 years ago.  Have always had a passion for the market as I went through school for finance and continued afterwards towards obtaining my Level II CFA.
I have always had my hand in the stock market, but all my positions were always based on hope.  Fast-forward to selling my restaurants and wondering, “what’s next”, when I stumbled across FIT and never looked back.
During my time here I have strengthened my TA game as well as my phycological game.  My goal here, with FIT, is to help all members achieve their trading goals through TA awareness as well as helping with the mental game.


Sherv has been a full-time seven-figure trader since 2018 and has been part-time trading for over eight years. He is a CPA (Chartered Professional Accountant) with twelve years experience in M&A private clients, advisory + quant, vol, flow, and trend trading. He has been part of a Fit lead team since 2019, and focuses on deep market analytics from different lenses to give the community an edge over the crowd.


I first joined FIT in its early hay days in November 2018 and have had the pleasure of watching many members grow not only their accounts exponentially, but their attitude towards approaching the market which only comes with experience. This experience in our community here at FIT is what I could only dream of having when I first stumbled into the market in the midst of the Great Recession in 2009. And throughout all that stumbling and tuition fees I paid to the market, I was finally able to gain that experience needed to tackle the challenging market we have in this era of trading. All of that experience required over 10 years of painful lessons and unfortunate account blow-ups. My goal as a leader at FIT is to help steer our members into the right mindset, tackling emotional hurdles, provide guidance application of TA, and most importantly to be able to share my own experiences that helped me ascend into my successful trading career.


I had my first start at trading during university. I was working on a finance degree at the time and naturally gravitated toward capital markets. The marijuana stock and crypto boom are what really got me interested and ever since then, I haven’t looked back. There are so many aspects to trading that the only way to really learn is to jump in and learn from experience. Whether it’s technical analysis, risk management, or trading psychology, I’ve been through it all hundreds of times over. I’m proud to be part of the FIT team to share my knowledge and experience and help members become successful traders.

I have traded for many years and had what I thought a good understanding of TA using candlesticks, recognizing patterns, using oscillators and such. When I joined Fit I was amazed at how much I had progressed. In a matter of weeks after joining I felt that much better about “seeing” trades. I learned more about TA in such a short time than I have in all the years I have traded. And I learned about other ways to use certain indicators and tools to my advantage. I always new about these tools/indicators but now feel confident enough to use them in helping me trade. Ive become a far better trader with Ricks help and the people he has himself associated with are second to none. I wish I could name them all!


I had been watching Rick’s videos on youtube for quite some time and it was quite evident that he exhibited a huge amount of knowledge in technical analysis and it showed when he explained his rationale doing a deep dive into every chart he encountered. When I finally joined the Fit-Family back in November 2019, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But right from the beginning, you could easily see that this was the place to be in order to improve yourself as a trader both knowledge wise and mentally. It is obvious that each and every member within this community wants you to succeed and that is conveyed from the leadership on down. This family has been there to pick me up through some my lows and most definitely have had a huge hand in helping me achieve many of my highs and I truly believe I am a better trader because of this.


Joining the FITFAM was one of the best things I’ve ever done. Rick is an awesome mentor even more than I could ever have imagined. He is a true professional on every level. He is a down to earth guy that actually cares about all of our success and is a true leader that I haven’t seen the likes of in a long time. I have learned so much from him and look forward to learning so much more. Endless learning here at FIT!

I joined FIT 2 weeks ago and am quite happy that I did. Being part of a community that is constantly sharing trade ideas, news alerts, coaching/mentoring throughout the day has helped improve my trading results as well as learn from past mistakes to avoid making them again. As a new trader it is incredibly valuable to watch seasoned members execute and manage trades live in the chatroom. I can’t imagine how long it would take me to learn the complexities of the market on my own versus trading live alongside hundreds of FIT members. The markets are difficult and unforgiving at the best of times and it’s been great trading with the support of an entire community. Whether the markets are turbulent or calm the positive vibes and market focus in the chatroom make FIT an integral part of my trading day. I stumbled upon FIT through Rick’s youtube streams and find him to be a truly gifted educator. He has an ability to teach technical analysis in an easy to digest manner. Fibonacci’s, Kumo clouds, RSI, candlestick patterns are indicators that I now use which have garnered immediate results in my trading. All day long Rick, the FIT admins and FIT members are sharing, teaching, alerting and providing feedback in the chatroom which has accelerated my education by leaps and bounds in a short period of time. Thank you Rick and the FIT community


I was introduced to Fitraders by my neighbour. I was immediately impressed by their no nonsense, straight to the point style. There are no gimmicks or outrageous claims, just good, factual information. I have learned a lot in a short time thanks to Fit and would recommend them to anyone looking to improve their trading.

Rick is the real deal. Knowledgable, humble, dedicated, and a fantastic teacher! The amount of quality weekly content he provides is staggering, and the FIT community is exceptional. This is not chasing penny stocks, nor a chat room full of pumpers. It is a mature community of traders (all levels of experience) who work together to share trade ideas based on TA. If you want to LEARN to trade for yourself this is the place to be! You will not find a better value or higher quality educational experience in this space than FIT


The opportunity at FIT Traders is life changing, being in control of your finances opens wonders of growth. At FIT we are a family always working together as a team to find new opportunities, provide support and care for one another. Joining FIT has changed my life!


I have been in a number of chatrooms but none of them can compare to FIT. I feel like I am a part of the community and my opinions are heard. There are a lot of brilliant and experienced traders who are willing to mentor and guide you to a successful trading career. And the best part is: the community makes trading a lot more fun! 10/10 would recommend FIT to all traders.
