Here is a video on handling the Iron condor that may or may not pose a problem. If stock moves above 540 it will go higher, if not the short sellers will take it down much lower, and if the market is in a nasty mood like today. Today the stock held very well despite […]

The market has dropped to the point where corrective actions is necessary. One can always close the position if short strikes are within 20 points of the price.

With the market up second day in row NDX at 1900 levels and hitting 50 day moving average above, closed the NDX put spread for 0.05 cents. The theta on the spread was far less than next months at the same strike or above. Will look for new set ups in the making. Closed NDX […]
