Written by Katie Gomez

“Quarterback” Leads The Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms

Good morning.  “‘Quarterback’, today’s high performing algorithm, headlines the Holly Morning Huddle Report.”

As of today, Monday, March 26, 2018, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +123.6 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +34.4 points over the same period. On Friday my performance was lower -1.3 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 Friday. the SPY was down -5.6. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was down -0.8 points.

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 9 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 9 strategies selected today 5 are Long, bullish in outlook. 4 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The Quarterback strategy, in the list below, has the highest Win % heading into the Open based on optimized, backtested scenarios.

Here are the algos:

No. Win% Strategy L/S
1 62.2 Breakout Long
2 67.7 Downward Dog Short
3 63.9 Downward Momentum Short
4 63.6 Looking for Bounce Long
5 61.1 Power Hour Long Long
6 67.3 Putting on the Breaks Short
