Dominating “Accelerator” Leads 12 Algos, 10 Long: Holly

Written by Katie Gomez

Good morning.  This week was dominated by the ‘Accelerator’ as it continues to be the top performing strategy in the regime of algorithms. 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, December 23, 2016, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +102.9 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +19.2 points over the same period. On Thursday my performance was higher +0.2 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 was down -0.4. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was up +1.3.

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 12 themes/strategies that 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 12 strategies selected today 10 are Long, bullish in outlook. 2 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. 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 75.9 Accelerator Long
2 63.4 Bullish Trend Change Long
3 66.7 Float On Long
4 69.8 Mighty Mouse Long
5 60 Nickelback Long
6 64.3 On Support Long
7 68.2 Power Hour Long Long
8 61.3 Power Hour Short Short
9 66.7 Putting on the Breaks Short
10 63.2 Quarterback Long
11 68.4 Strong Stock Pulling Back Long
12 56.1 Wake Up Call Long

Have a great morning. See you in the markets!
