Sep 15, 2017

“Early Bird” Leads The Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms

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

As of today, Friday, September 15, 2017, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +76.1 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +26.5 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 up -.1. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was up +.9 points.

19 stocks traded yesterday: 19 long stocks traded in the following sectors. 7/19 were in the Mining, Quarrying, and Oil and Gas Extraction sector.

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 6 are Long, bullish in outlook. 1 is Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The Early Bird 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 61.4 Breakout Long
2 60.9 Bullish Pullback Long
3 61.8 Buyers Stepping In Long
4 60.5 Cuts Like a Knife Short
5 62.5 Early Bird Long
6 63 Looking for Bounce Long
7 61.2 On Support Long

Have a great morning. See you in the markets!
