Holly Morning Huddle: “The Turn”, Leads 12 Algos, 11 Long

Aug 16, 2016

Good morning.

As of today, Tuesday, August 16, 2016, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +48.6 accumulated points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +13.6 points over the same period. On Monday my performance rose +0.27 from Friday on 6 trades in Risk-Off mode (shown above), where trades are not extended and exits are bounded by predetermined time in trade limits absent other reasons to exit (e.g., price target or stop loss reached, etc.). On Monday the SPY rose +0.63. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, rose +0.65. 

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 12 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 12 strategies selected today 11 are Long, bullish in outlook. 1 is Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The long strategy, ‘The Turn’, in the list below has the highest Win %s based on optimized, backtested scenarios. 
Here are the algos:

No. Win % Strategy L/S
1 55.9 Alpha Predator Long
2 70.6 Bullish Pullback Long
3 63.0 Bullish Trend Change Long
4 61.0 Buyers Stepping In Long
5 70.2 Float On Long
6 52.6 Horseshoe Down Short
7 63.5 Looking for Bounce Long
8 62.1 Pushing Through Resistance Long
