“Putting On The Breaks” Leads The Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms
Good morning. Putting On The Breaks, today’s high performing algorithm, headlines the Holly Morning Huddle Report.
As of today, Thursday, June 29, 2017, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +55.5 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +19.9 points over the same period. On Wednesday 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 Wednesday. the SPY was up +2.2. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was up +.8 points.

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 8 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 8 strategies selected today 3 are Long, bullish in outlook. 5 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The Putting on the Breaks strategy, in the list below, has the highest Win % heading into the Open based on optimized, backtested scenarios.
Here are the algos:

|4||67.7||Looking for Bounce||Long|
|5||50.9||No Fear Short Here||Short|
|6||71.7||Putting on the Breaks||Short|
