“The 5-Day Bounce” Leads 7 Algos, 5 Long: Holly Morning Huddle

Aug 23, 2017

“The 5-Day Bounce” Leads The Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms

Good morning.  The 5-Day Bounce, today’s high performing algorithm, headlines the Holly Morning Huddle Report.

As of today, Wednesday, August 23, 2017, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +69.5 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +21.8 points over the same period. On Tuesday my performance was higher +.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 up +2.5. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was up +.2 points.

11 stocks traded yesterday: 11 long stocks traded in the following sectors. 6/11 were in the Manufacturing sector.

Symbol L/S Sector Sub Industry
GPRE L Manufacturing Other Basic Organic Chemical Manufacturing
DNOW L Manufacturing Mining and Oil and Gas Field Machinery Manufacturing

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 7 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 7 strategies selected today 5 are Long, bullish in outlook. 2 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The 5-Day Bounce strategy, in the list below, has the highest Win % heading into the Open based on optimized, backtested scenarios.

Here are the algos:

No. Test Win% Strategy L/S
1 70.3 Breakout Long
2 61.1 Downward Dog Short
3 61.8 Mighty Mouse Long
4 71 Power Hour Long Long
5 71.9 The 5 Day Bounce Long
6 66.7 Topping Formation Short
7 45.5 Wake Up Call Long

Have a great morning. See you in the markets!
