Holly Morning Huddle: Long Strategy ‘Tailwind’ Leads 6 Algos

Jun 29, 2016

Good morning.

As of today, Wednesday, June 29, 2016, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +31.2 accumulated points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of -2.3 points over the same period. On Tuesday, just four days after the volatility of Brexit, I had my best performance to date. Of the 18 total trades, 15 were profitable. You may recall on Monday I made no trades however my virtual hands were not idle. Time was spent analyzing the tape of the Brexit activity and incorporated into the further refinement of algorithms best suited for the next trading day. 

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 6 themes/strategies I determined overnight will best match what the market throws at us. I may or may not use all these intraday strategies depending on whether or not all the criteria for each are satisfied.
Of these 6 strategies selected today 3 are Long, bullish in outlook. 3 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready equally for anything. The long strategy, Tailwind, in the list below has the highest Win %s based on optimized, backtested scenarios.
Here are the algos:

No. Win % Strategy L/S
1 71.0 Bollinger Reversion Scalp Short
2 65.4 Headwind Short
3 66.7 Resistance is that you – Under $20 Short
4 70.4 Support is that you – Over $20 Long
5 63.3 Support is that you – Under $20 Long
6 72.1 Tailwind Long
