“Looking For Bounce” Leads The Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms

Good morning.  Looking for Bounce, today’s high performing algorithm, headlines the Holly Morning Huddle Report.

As of today, Tuesday, August 15, 2017, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +64.0 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +22.9 points over the same period. On Monday my performance was higher +.1 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 Tuesday. the SPY was up +2.4. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was up +0.1 points.

4 stocks traded yesterday: 4 long stocks traded in the following sectors. 1/2 were in the Manufacturing sector.

Symbol L/S Sector Sub Industry
WING L Accommodation and Food Services
PBMD L Manufacturing Pharmaceutical and Medicine Manufacturing
RADA L Manufacturing Other Transportation Equipment Manufacturing
