“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, Wednesday, September 19, 2018 the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +81.3 accumulated profit points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +18.9 points over the same period. On Tuesday my performance was lower -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 Tuesday, the SPY was flat. My Risk-On mode, which extends the holding period for trades until the day’s close, was down -0.1 points.

44 stocks traded yesterday: 38 long and 6 stocks traded short in the following sectors. 7/22 were in the Manufacturing sector.

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 15 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 15 strategies selected today 11 are Long, bullish in outlook. 4 are Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The Breakout 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 73.9 Breakout Long
2 63.6 Bullish Pullback Long
3 61.7 Buyers Stepping In Long
4 67.6 Little Big Guy Long
5 66.7 Mighty Mouse Long
6 66.2 On Support Long
7 63.6 Power Hour Short Short
8 69.2 Putting on the Breaks Short
9 68.3 Quarterback Long
10 61.2 Selling Strength Short
11 70.4 Strong Stock Pulling Back Long
12 60.5 Sunrise Mover Long
13 66.1 Tailwind Long
14 69 Topping Formation Short
