Written by Katie Gomez

“Buyers Stepping In and Power Hour Short” Leads The Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms

Good morning.  Buyers Stepping In and Power Hour Short, today’s high performing algorithm, headlines the Holly Morning Huddle Report.

As of today, Wednesday, January 31, 2018, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +115.0 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +58.1 points over the same period. On Tuesday 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 Tuesday, the SPY was down -2.9. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was down -0.2 points.

4 stocks traded yesterday: 2 long and 2 stocks traded short in the following sectors.

Symbol L/S Sector Sub Industry
THC L Health Care and Social Assistance General Medical and Surgical Hospitals
MRTN S Transportation and Warehousing General Freight Trucking, Long-Distance
CDXS L Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services Research and Development in the Physical, Engineering, and Life Sciences
KS S Manufacturing Paper Mills

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.
