TGSectorSelector Strategy- need help refining


I observed that nearly every day the market has a favored sector. On an up trending day this sector usually continues to outperform the S&P nicely. I have begun coding up a new trading system that takes advantage of this.

I have broken up the logic into the following sections:

Don't trade on the weekends
Don't enter a trade in the afternoon, etc.

General Direction of the market... try to identify trending days

Identify Sector:
Using spyders find the sector which is outperforming

Entry timing

Exit Strategy:
Close out position

My code is attached. Right now it looses money and does not really include proper trade management. I liked reading and seeing how other code has been collaborated on. I am looking for collaborators / general feedback with ideas for the sections above.
