Written by Katie Gomez

‘Power Hour Short’ Leads the Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms

Manufacturing Leads the Sectors from Friday’s Activity

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

As of today, Tuesday February 21, 2017, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +118.9 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +28.9 points over the same period. On Friday my performance was higher +.75 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 Monday. the SPY was up +.37 My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was down -.29 points.

21 stocks traded Friday before the holiday: 19 long and 2 stocks traded short in the following sectors. Almost half, 9/21, were in the Manufacturing sector.
