Holly Morning Huddle: “Selling Strength”, Leads 7 Algos, 3 Shorts

Aug 5, 2016

Good morning.

As of today, Friday, August 5, 2016, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +45.4 accumulated points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +10.9 points over the same period. On Thursday my performance fell -2.26 from Wednesday on 16 trades in Risk-Off mode (shown above), where trades are not extended and exits are bounded by predetermined time in trade limits. Yesterday the SPY moved up +0.23. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, swinged down -5.13 Wednesday. 

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 7 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 4 are Long, bullish in outlook. 3 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The short strategy, ‘Selling Strength’, in the list below has the highest Win %s based on optimized, backtested scenarios. 
Here are the algos:

No. Win % Strategy L/S
1 57.1 Alpha Predator Long
2 61.8 Bullish Pullback Long
3 64.7 Looking for Bounce Long
4 63.6 Mighty Mouse Long
5 65.6 Power Hour Short Short
6 66.0 Selling Strength Short
7 64.4 Topping Formation Short
