“Accelerator” Leads 5 Algos, All Long: Holly Morning Huddle

Dec 20, 2016

Good morning. It’s the 5th day in a row of the Accelerator algorithm as a top performing strategy. Despite world tension from terrorist incidents, futures are steadily up and all of today’s strategies are long, but first let’s assess my overall performance.


As of today, Tuesday, December 20, 2016, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +102.3 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +19.4 points over the same period. On Monday my performance was higher +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 Monday. the SPY was up +0.5. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was down -1.1 points.

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 all 5 strategies are Long, bullish in outlook. Ready for anything especially on the long side. The Accelerator strategy, in the list below, has the highest Win % heading into the Open based on optimized, backtested scenarios.

Here are the algos:

No. Win% Strategy L/S
1 77.9 Accelerator Long
2 62.7 Buyers Stepping In Long
3 62.8 Quarterback Long
4 67.1 Strong Stock Pulling Back Long
5 55.9 Wake Up Call Long

Have a great morning. See you in the markets!
