“Bon Shorty” Leads 10 Algos, 5 Long: Holly Morning Huddle Report

Dec 12, 2016

Good morning.  Big surge in oil prices and Exxon’s CEO getting groomed for Secretary of State bring us to 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, Monday, December 12, 2016, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +103.9 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +20.3 points over the same period. On Friday my performance was lower -0.5 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 Friday. the SPY was up +1.4. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was up +0.2 points.

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 10 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 10 strategies selected today 5 are Long, bullish in outlook. 5 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The Bon Shorty strategy, in the list below, has the highest Win % heading into the Open based on optimized, backtested scenarios.
