For this week’s Options Trade Of The Week we will look to sell an Iron Condor on Target (Symbol: TGT). Target released their quarterly earnings this past week which can often times lead to a period of consolidation – sideways market.
One way to make money from a choppy stretch is to sell an Iron Condor.
Instead of looking for a big move higher or lower, the Iron Condor is a trade that looks for the stock to stay inside of a range or what we call a profit window. As long as it stays inside of the profit window we can make money from time decay and volatility decreasing.
