Written by Katie Gomez

Looking for Bounce Leads the Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms

Pharma Stocks Lead the Sectors Traded Yesterday

Good morning.   Looking for Bounce, today’s high performing algorithm, headlines the Holly Morning Huddle Report.

As of today, Tuesday, January 7, 2017, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +114.0 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +22.8 points over the same period. On Tuesday my performance was higher +1.1 1 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 Tuesday. the SPY was down -.41. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was up +.71 points.

Stocks traded yesterday were: PXLW, AQXP, ZGNX, MIXT, OREX, PPSI, AKAM to the Long side and only 1 Short: NTNX. 3 Pharmas and the rest a mixed bag.

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 8 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 8 strategies selected today 7 are Long, bullish in outlook. 1 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The Looking for Bounce strategy, in the list below, has the highest Win % heading into the Open based on optimized, backtested scenarios.

Here are the algos:

No. Test Win% Strategy L/S
1 56.9 Bouncers Long
2 61.3 Bullish Pullback Long
3 76.5 Looking for Bounce Long
4 69.2 On Support Long
5 59.6 Power Hour Long Long
6 68 Power Hour Short Short
7 59.8 Tailwind Long
8 51.5 Wake Up Call Long
Have a great morning. See you in the markets!
