“Strong Stock Pulling Back” Leads The Daily Regime of Optimized Algorithms

Good morning.  “‘Strong Stock Pulling Back’, today’s high performing algorithm, headlines the Holly Morning Huddle Report.”

As of today, Friday, July 12, 2019, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +127.6 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +30.9 points over the same period. On Thursday my performance was higher +0.1 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 +0.7. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was down -0.5 points.

19 stocks traded yesterday: 15 long and 4 stocks traded short in the following sectors. 6/19 were in the Manufacturing sector.

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 12 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 12 strategies selected today 8 are Long, bullish in outlook. 4 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The Strong Stock Pulling Back 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 63.6 Breakout Long
2 63 Buyers Stepping In Long
3 63.8 Close to a cross Long
4 63.5 Count De Monet Long
5 61.9 Downward Dog Short
6 59.8 Float On Long
7 65.7 Knocking on Resistance Short
8 61.4 Mighty Mouse Long
9 75 On Support Long
10 61.4 Selling Strength Short
11 85.2 Strong Stock Pulling Back Long
12 73.7 Topping Formation Short
