Holly Morning Huddle: Short Side, ‘Slippery Slope’, Leads 7 Algos

Jul 28, 2016

Good morning.

As of today, Thursday, July 28, 2016, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +43.3 accumulated points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +11.0 points over the same period. On Wednesday my performance jumped +1.11 from Tuesday on 19 trades while the SPY fell -0.23.  

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 5 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 7 strategies selected today 5 are Long, bullish in outlook. 2 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The short strategy, ‘Slippery Slope’, in the list below has the highest Win %s based on optimized, backtested scenarios. 
Here are the algos:

No. Win % Strategy L/S
1 49.2 Alpha Predator Long
2 59.6 Bullish Pullback Long
3 60.0 Headwind Short
4 62.3 Mighty Mouse Long
5 62.5 Pushing Through Resistance Long
6 66.7 Quarterback Long
7 67.4 Slippery Slope Short
