Written by Katie Gomez

‘Knocking On Resistance’ Strategy Leads the Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms

Good morning.  Knocking On Resistance, today’s high performing algorithm, headlines the Holly Morning Huddle Report.

As of today, Thursday March 23, 2017, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +23.9 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +10.8 points over the same period. On Wednesday my performance was lower -0.39 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 Wednesday, the SPY was up +.55. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was up +1.2 points.

10 stocks traded yesterday: 9 long and 1 stock traded short in the following sectors. 3/5 were in the Manufacturing sector.
