Written by Katie Gomez

“Bullish Trend Change” Leads The Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms

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

As of today, Thursday, September 14, 2017, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +76.5 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +26.6 points over the same period. On Wednesday my performance was higher +.3 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 +.1. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was down -0.5 points.

7 stocks traded yesterday: 7 long stocks traded in the following sectors. 2/7 were in both the Manufacturing and Finance and Insurance sectors.

Symbol L/S Sector Sub Industry
HAL L Mining, Quarrying, and Oil and Gas Extraction Support Activities for Mining
OSTK L Retail Trade Electronic Shopping and Mail-Order Houses
KURA L Manufacturing Pharmaceutical and Medicine Manufacturing
NSTG L Manufacturing Pharmaceutical and Medicine Manufacturing
AXS L Finance and Insurance Direct Insurance (except Life, Health, and Medical) Carriers
