On Wednesday around 4:20pm, Yahoo! Finance was offline, so stop-updates for URTY and AGQ did not happen.  Yahoo came back an hour later, but the stops wouldn't have changed much anyway so I didn’t bother rerunning the update.

URTY: On Friday, the robot set the stop loss to +0.5, but my manual calculations came out to +0.8.  I raised the stop manually, but this needs investigation.

Stock-trading robot

No trades this week.

Double-TRIX trading model

Tuesday night, the robot generated a “buy” signal for UWM, but the signal was invalid because SMA(q) was less than CHANDELIER(+) so if the order had actually filled, it would have immediately stopped out.  I added a new rule: “do not buy if limit-price is less than stop-price”.  The new rule prevented a buy-order Wednesday night, but there was a valid “buy” generated Thursday night, which did not hit its limit during Friday’s session.  There is another ”buy” order for Monday.
