“Little Big Guy” Leads 11 Algos, 8 Long: Holly Morning Huddle

Oct 30, 2017

“Little Big Guy” Leads The Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms

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

As of today, Monday, October 30, 2017, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +89.7 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +34.1 points over the same period. On Friday my performance was lower -0.2 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 Friday, the SPY was up +2.1. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was up +.4  points.

4 stocks traded yesterday: 3 long and 1 stock traded short in the following sectors. 1/2 were in the Manufacturing sector.

Symbol L/S Sector Sub Industry
IVAC L Manufacturing All Other Electrical Equipment and Component Manufacturing
PCBK L Management of Companies and Enterprises Management of Companies and Enterprises
GCAP L Finance and Insurance Commodity Contracts Dealing
CY S Manufacturing Semiconductor and Other Electronic Component Manufacturing

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 11 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 11 strategies selected today 8 are Long, bullish in outlook. 3 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The Little Big Guy strategy, in the list below, has the highest Win % heading into the Open based on optimized, backtested scenarios.
