Holly Morning Huddle: “Little Big Guy”, Leads 5 Algos, 4 Longs

Aug 4, 2016

Good morning.

As of today, Thursday, August 4, 2016, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +47.7 accumulated points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +10.7 points over the same period. On Wednesday my performance jumped +1.87 from Monday on 20 trades in Risk-Off mode, where trades are not extended and exits are bounded by predetermined time in trade limits. Yesterday the SPY moved up +0.6. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, performed even better climbing +3.84 Tuesday. 

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 5 strategies selected today 4 are Long, bullish in outlook. 1 is Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The long strategy, ‘Little Big Guy’, in the list below has the highest Win %s based on optimized, backtested scenarios. 
Here are the algos:

No. Win % Strategy L/S
1 57.0 Alpha Predator Long
2 73.9 Little Big Guy Long
3 62.4 On Support Long
4 69.2 Pushing Through Resistance Long
5 59.6 Putting on the Breaks Short
