About Strategy
The iron condor is a neutral trading strategy. The investment remains profitable whenever it stays within this neutral trading range. A 70 day option expiration period as trading may occur 5 times per year. A hedge is executed whenever price movement increases significantly on any one side, such that the credit spread premium reaches $3.00. A 10 point debit spread (5 contracts) hedge is recommended starting 10 points before the threatened short strike price. Any continual price movement that reaches the short strike price, the trader must evaluate the risk and decide on closing out the hedged debit spread for profit and the credit spread for a loss Further adjustment of this trade is optional. Volatility is high after closing out the side losing money, the investor can rollout the position on the losing side for a credit depending on timeleft until expiration.
