“Power Hour Long” Leads 9 Algos, 8 Long: Holly Morning Huddle

Written by Katie Gomez

‘Power Hour Long’ Strategy Leads the Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms

Manufacturing Sector Strongly Represented in Friday’s Trade Results

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

As of today, Monday, February 6, 2017, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +16.7 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +14.9 points over the same period. On Friday my performance was higher +1.7 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 Friday, the SPY was up +.15. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was up +3.2 points.

15 stocks traded yesterday: 13 long and 2 stocks traded short in the following sectors. 13/15 were in the Manufacturing sector.
