Written by Katie Gomez

Power Hour Long Leads the Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms

Pharmaceutical and Medicine Manufacturing Stocks Lead the Sectors Traded Yesterday

Good morning.  Power Hour Long, today’s high performing algorithm, headlines the Holly Morning Huddle Report.

As of today, Wednesday, February 8, 2017, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +114.6 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +22.8 points over the same period. On Tuesday my performance was higher +.58 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 up +.01. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was up +2.8 points.

Stocks traded yesterday were: EBIX, PBYI, GIMO, ACAD, ESPR, EGL, GPRE, TTEK, AMBR, FORM, ALRM, PCYG, and CNAT to the Long side and WD, CSTE, and SAIA to the Short side. Nearly half the trades in Manufacturing led by Pharmaceutical and Medicine Manufacturing. The rest was a mixed bag.

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 11 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 11 strategies selected today 8 are Long, bullish in outlook. 3 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The Power Hour Long 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 59.2 Bon Shorty Short
2 56.9 Bouncers Long
3 60.4 Count De Monet Long
4 61.1 Looking for Bounce Long
