Description

Monterey Features
Monterey aims to produce smooth consistent gains profiting from market momentum, with a medium term holding period, low turnover and aggressive risk management.

Approach Rotational Trend Following
Direction Long only
Stock Universe Constituents of the Nasdaq 100 Index
Liquidity Filter System has minimum price and turnover liquidity filters built in to avoid trading illiquid issues
Volatility Filter A volatility filter eliminates stocks with very low volatility such as takeover stocks and those with few trades.
Ranking Score A momentum based ranking methodology is used to determine the strongest stocks in the index. This measures the strength of all stocks on a scale of 0 to 100 – higher is stronger. Any stocks failing to pass the other system filters are scored at zero.
Market Regime Filter A market based regime filter ensures the system only trades when market conditions are favourable and seeks to reduce risk when otherwise. 
Max Positions The system aims to hold up to 10 of the strongest stocks in the index, subject to the above filters
Rotation Stocks are re-ranked weekly on a Friday. Any holdings falling out of the top 10 or otherwise eliminated by the filters are sold and the remainder are held. Any new entrants to the top 10 list are bought, subject to a free slot being available.
Position Size The system is based on a fixed fractional position size of 10% of account capital per position. If fewer than 10 stocks are available to be held, the balance is held in cash.

 

Exit Strategy The system has two complementary exit triggers. The primary exit is momentum based and will sell down a stock that has lost momentum relative to other holdings when it’s no longer strong enough to remain in the holdings list of ranked stocks. The momentum based exit will tend to exit in the middle of the price range during the “distribution” phase following an uptrend and will tend to avoid capitulation points, such as where price-based stops would normally be triggered. This action of selling a stock losing momentum whilst buying a stock gaining momentum also produces a smoothing effect in the results. Additionally the market regime filter will sell down holdings and reduce risk when market-wide conditions turn adverse.
Executions Buy and Sell signals are available on a Friday evening (USA Eastern Time) after the market is closed and once the data is available for processing. Trade executions are to be made at the following Week’s market open.

Each weekend, the full list of index rankings, trade history and system results are published on the Helix Trader website and are available to be viewed by subscribers. A listing of the holdings along with any buys and sells are provided by email to subscribers.
