“Nickelback” Leads 11 Algos, 9 Long: Holly Morning Huddle

Written by Katie Gomez

“Nickelback” Leads The Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms

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

As of today, Wednesday, March 27, 2019, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +116.0 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +13.5 points over the same period. On Tuesday my performance was flat 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 up +2.1. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was up +.8 points.

23 stocks traded yesterday: 23 long stocks traded in the following sectors. 11/23 were in the Manufacturing sector.

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 9 are Long, bullish in outlook. 2 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The Nickelback 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 60.3 Buyers Stepping In Long
2 64 Count De Monet Long
3 68.1 Downward Momentum Short
4 60.7 Float On Long
5 61.6 Looking for Bounce Long
6 74.1 Nickelback Long
7 61.9 Putting on the Breaks Short
8 62.3 Quarterback Long
9 59.6 Straight Outta Compland Long
10 61.9 Tailwind Long
11 61.5 Trend Trend Play Long

Have a great morning. See you in the markets!
