Selling Iron Condor Trade Of The Week – Options

Posted in: Options Trading, Trade Of The Week, Trading Article


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.

    I tried to get filled on the TGT iron condor for 0.5 credit on Friday and 0.48 today and neither was filled. Is this still a valid trade? And at what price?

      It is still a valid trade as long as you can get filled at $.45 or higher. Iron Condors can be tricky to get fills on if the volumes are light. You should have a good chance of getting filled on this over the next few days.

    On IDDX, when I create a closing order the max price is $3.70. Should I put in the order for that or put in for $4.00 GTC?
