Holly Morning Huddle: “Wait for the 8”, Leads 8 Algos, 4 Short
Nov 8, 2016
Good morning. Do not forget to vote! What does today have in store for the markets? How will react today and certainly tomorrow? Best to be prepared. Here’s how.
As of today, Tuesday, November 8, 2016, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +99.1 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +2.4 points over the same period. On Monday my performance nudged higher +0.42 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 Monday the SPY was up +4.6. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was up +2.34 points.
Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 8 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 8 strategies selected today 4 are Long, bullish in outlook. 4 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything on this momentous day. The Wait for the 8 strategy, in the list below, has the highest Win % heading into the Open based on optimized, backtested scenarios.
Here are the algos:
|1||52.6||Alpha Predator Edge||Long|
|2||68.1||Hey That’s My Bike||Long|
|3||69.2||Knocking on Resistance||Short|
|5||65.4||Power Hour Short||Short|
|8||77.8||Wait for the 8||Short|
