“Knocking On Resistance” 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, Friday, June 30, 2017, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +55.2 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +17.7 points over the same period. On Thursday my performance was lower -0.4 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 Thursday. the SPY was down -2.1.  My Risk-On mode, which extends he holding period for trades until the day’s close, was down -0.04 points.
