Not a Double Bottom Leads the Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms

Pharmaceutical and Medicine Manufacturing Stocks Lead the Sectors Traded Yesterday

Good morning.  Not a Double Bottom, today’s high performing algorithm, headlines the Holly Morning Huddle Report.

As of today, Friday, February 10, 2017, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +115.6 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +24.4 points over the same period. On Thursday my performance was lower -.01 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 up +1.36.  My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was up +1.42 points.

11 stocks traded yesterday: long and 3 stocks traded short in the following sectors. 1/3 were in the Pharmaceutical and Medicine Manufacturing sector.
