Holly Morning Huddle: “Headwind”, Leads 10 Algos, 2 Short

Aug 19, 2016

Good morning.

As of today, Friday, August 19, 2016, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +40.1 [UPDATE: +46.0] accumulated points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +13.3 points over the same period. On Thursday my performance fell hard -8.31 [UPDATE: -2.41] from Wednesday on 33 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 Thursday the SPY rose +0.49. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, rose +0.79. 

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 11 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 11 strategies selected today 8 are Long, bullish in outlook. 2 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The long strategy, ‘Headwind’, in the list below has the highest Win %s based on optimized, backtested scenarios. 
Here are the algos:

No. Win % Strategy L/S
1 54.1 Alpha Predator Long
2 70.4 Headwind Short
3 50.0 Horseshoe Down Short
4 59.7 Mighty Mouse Long
5 65.3 Pushing Through Resistance Long
6 62.9 Quarterback Long
7 60.4 Strong Stock Pulling Back Long
8 61.4 Sunrise Mover Long
9 60.9 Tailwind Long
10 67.2 The Turn Long
