At www.squareoff.in we have multiple trading strategies that are available in our Fully automated platform. One such strategy is Intraday Trend bot
The algorithm starts scanning all 150+ stocks and checks which are in uptrend by 11.15 AM. There could be multiple stocks which can show signs of uptrend, so our algorithm picks up top 5 stocks that has moved up >3% from Open to 11.15 AM, and go long on these 5 stocks with day open as stop loss. Once entry is done, we close the position by 3:20 PM, no targets.
So the rules are simple & straight forward.
- Look for stocks that has moved up >3% by 11: 15 AM from Day open.
- Go long at 11:15 AM candle close
- Stop loss Day open price, if stock goes below day open price, we exit.
- If stop loss is not hit, we close the position by 3.20 PM
- No shorts, only long.
Shorts will not work well with this logic because of short squeezes and mean reversion that often happens with beaten down stocks, hence going only long has ended up in higher profits with this strategy. The performance of the strategy can be checked here http://performance.squareoffbots.com/
