“Breakout” Leads The Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms

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

As of today, Wednesday, August 16, 2017, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +65.2 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +22.9 points over the same period. On Tuesday 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 Tuesday. the SPY was down -.03. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was up +1.8 points.
