“Putting on the Breaks” Leads 7 Algos, 3 Short: Holly Morning Huddle

Oct 31, 2017

“Putting on the Breaks” Leads The Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms

Good morning.  Putting on the Breaks, today’s high performing algorithm, headlines the Holly Morning Huddle Report.

As of today, Tuesday, October 31, 2017, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +89.4 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +33.1 points over the same period. On Monday my performance was lower -0.3 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 Monday, the SPY was down -.1. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was down -0.4 points.

6 stocks traded yesterday: 6 long stocks traded in the following sectors. 1/2 were in the Manufacturing sector.

Symbol L/S Sector Sub Industry
INST L Information Software Publishers
GLOP L Transportation and Warehousing Other Support Activities for Water Transportation
OMER L Manufacturing Pharmaceutical and Medicine Manufacturing
DO L Mining, Quarrying, and Oil and Gas Extraction Support Activities for Mining
CARA L Manufacturing Pharmaceutical and Medicine Manufacturing
ZIOP L Manufacturing Pharmaceutical and Medicine 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 4 are Long, bullish in outlook. 3 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The Putting on the Breaks 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 61.2 Cuts Like a Knife Short

3 61.3 Looking for Bounce Long
