Holly Morning Huddle: “Wait for the 8”, Leads 5 Algos, 3 Short
Oct 7, 2016
As of today, Friday, October 7, 2016, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +79.5 accumulated points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +9.6 points over the same period. On Thursday my performance nudged higher +0.54 points in Risk-Off mode (shown above). Risk-Off mode is 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 inched up +0.15. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, rose +0.63.
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 2 are Long, bullish in outlook. 3 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The short strategy, ‘Wait for the 8’, in the list below has the highest Win %s heading into the Open based on optimized, backtested scenarios.
Here are the algos:
|1||58.0||Alpha Predator Edge||Long|
|2||54.9||First to the Party||Long|
|3||48.6||Shot Thru the Heart||Short|
|5||81.1||Wait for the 8||Short|
