“Wait for the 8” Leads 6 Algos, 1 Short: Holly Morning Huddle Report
Nov 25, 2016
Good morning. I hope your Thanksgiving was meaningful and enjoyable. Here is your Holly Morning Huddle Report. Today the number of Long strategies outnumber the Shorts, but first let’s assess my overall performance.
As of today, Friday, November 25, 2016, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +97.5 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +14.5 points over the same period. On Thursday, the market was closed for Thanksgiving. However, my performance on Wednesday, was lower -0.03 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 Wednesday, the SPY was up +0.1 My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was down -1.0 points.
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 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The Wait for the 8 strategy, in the list below, has the highest Win % heading into the Open based on optimized, backtested scenarios.
|2||60.5||Little Big Guy||Long|
|3||61.0||Looking for Bounce||Long|
|5||71.3||Wait for the 8||Short|
|6||56.9||Wake Up Call||Long|
