“Accelerator”: Drives 13 Algos, 11 Long: Holly AM Huddle

Written by Katie Gomez

Good morning. The algorithm, “Accelerator”, drives the 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 30, 2016, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +102.8 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +18.2 points over the same period. On Thursday my performance was lower -0.3 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 -0.1. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was down -0.2 points.

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 13 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 13 strategies selected today 11 are Long, bullish in outlook. 2 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The Accelerator strategy drives the list below and has the highest Win % heading into the Open based on optimized, backtested scenarios.

Here are the algos:

No. Win% Strategy L/S
1 76.4 Accelerator Long
2 61 Buyers Stepping In Long
3 59.2 Count De Monet Long
4 61.6 Downward Momentum Short
5 61.4 Got Dough Wants To Go Long
