Written by Katie Gomez

“Breakout” Leads The Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms

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

As of today, Friday, January 5, 2018, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +112.7 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +48.0 points over the same period. On Thursday my performance was lower -0.5 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 +1.1. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was up +.2 points.

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

Symbol L/S Sector Sub Industry
LBRDK S Information Cable and Other Subscription Programming
MRTX S Manufacturing Pharmaceutical and Medicine Manufacturing
KANG L Health Care and Social Assistance Medical and Diagnostic Laboratories
CRC S Mining, Quarrying, and Oil and Gas Extraction Oil and Gas Extraction
BW L Manufacturing Semiconductor and Other Electronic Component Manufacturing
