“Selling Strength” Leads 11 Algos, 7 Long: Holly Morning Huddle

Written by Katie Gomez

‘Selling Strength’ Strategy Leads the Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms

Good morning.  Selling Strength, today’s high performing algorithm, headlines the Holly Morning Huddle Report.

As of today, Monday, March 20, 2017, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +24.2 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +13.5 points over the same period. On Friday, my performance was higher +1.2 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 down -1.5. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was up +2.8 points.

10 stocks traded yesterday: 8 long and 2 stocks traded short in the following sectors. 7/10 were in the Manufacturing sector.

INVE L Manufacturing Commercial and Service Industry Machinery Manufacturing
SLCA L Mining, Quarrying, and Oil and Gas Extraction Other Nonmetallic Mineral Mining and Quarrying

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 Selling Strength strategy, in the list below, has the highest Win % heading into the Open based on optimized, backtested scenarios.

Here are the algos:
