Holly Morning Huddle: “Horseshoe Down”, Leads 6 Algos, 1 Short

Aug 29, 2016

Good morning.

As of today, Monday, August 29, 2016, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +48.5 accumulated points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +11.8 points over the same period. On Friday my performance fell -0.42 from Thursday on 12 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 Friday the SPY fell -0.41. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, also fell -0.74. 

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 6 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 6 strategies selected today 5 are Long, bullish in outlook. 1 is Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The short strategy, ‘Horseshoe Down’, in the list below has the highest Win %s heading into the Open based on optimized, backtested scenarios. 
Here are the algos:

No. Win % Strategy L/S
1 55.7 Alpha Predator Long
2 60.0 Bullish Pullback Long
3 66.7 Horseshoe Down Short
4 62.5 On Support Long
5 60.7 Strong Stock Pulling Back Long
6 56.5 The Turn Long
