Holly Morning Huddle: Positive Jobs Report & Long Side, ‘Bounce’, Leads 4 Algos

Jul 8, 2016

Good morning.

As of today, Friday, July 8, 2016, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +32.7 accumulated points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +3.0 points over the same period. On Thursday my performance moved down -1.37 from Wednesday on 22 trades while the SPY fell -0.13.  

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 4 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 4 strategies selected today 2 are Long, bullish in outlook. 2 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything and especially a jobs report that beats expectations. The long strategy, ‘Looking for Bounce’, in the list below has the highest Win %s based on optimized, backtested scenarios.
Here are the algos:

No. Win % Strategy L/S
1 75.6 Looking for Bounce Long
2 60.4 Mighty Mouse Long
3 65.6 Putting on the Breaks Short
4 70.5 Too Much Too Soon Short
