Written by Katie Gomez

“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, Monday, October 16, 2017, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +89.2 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +31.3 points over the same period. On Friday my performance was flat 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 Friday. the SPY was up +.3. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was down -0.2 points.

7 stocks traded yesterday: 6 long and 1 stock traded short in the following sectors. 5/7 were in the Manufacturing sector.

Symbol L/S Sector Sub Industry
PTGX L Manufacturing Pharmaceutical and Medicine Manufacturing
CWH L Manufacturing Motor Vehicle Body and Trailer Manufacturing
REVG S Manufacturing Automobile and Light Duty Motor Vehicle Manufacturing
CSIQ L Manufacturing Semiconductor and Other Electronic Component Manufacturing
VNTR L Manufacturing Other Basic Inorganic Chemical Manufacturing
GPOR L Mining, Quarrying, and Oil and Gas Extraction Oil and Gas Extraction
DO L Mining, Quarrying, and Oil and Gas Extraction Support Activities for Mining

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 10 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 10 strategies selected today 7 are Long, bullish in outlook. 3 are 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:
