About Strategy
The iron condor is commonly known as a simple neutral trading strategy. When the trade stays in a neutral trading range, the investor can attain partial or whole profit leading up to the last day of a 70 day expiration cycle. The premier basic strategy is traded 5 times per year. Hedging or rollout strategy technique is inapplicable, The risk and starting credit is wholly dependent on the placement of an open trade far out of the money(OTM) based on the expected credit. The total credit one can potentially recieve is $800 having been equally apportioned relative to the underlying starting price. The action of adjustment of a position is optional and unexpected for this strategy.

YFINOW makes no promise or guarantee that future trends will match past historical gains.
