Holly Morning Huddle: Short Side Leads 3 Algos

Jul 5, 2016

Good morning. Hope you enjoyed the 4th of July holiday.

As of today, Tuesday, July 5, 2016, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +33.4 accumulated points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +4.4 points over the same period. On Friday my performance fell -1.1 from Thursday on 6 trades while the SPY rose +0.45.  

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 3 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 3 strategies selected today 2 are Long, bullish in outlook. 1 is Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The short strategy, ‘Too Much Too Soon’, in the list below has the highest Win %s based on optimized, backtested scenarios.
Here are the algos:

No. Win % Strategy L/S
1 60.5 Mighty Mouse Long
2 69.6 Tailwind Long
3 69.8 Too Much Too Soon Short
