Sure, everyone takes notice when the stock market rises dramatically—or suddenly plunges—but do you realize that most of the time, the stock market is doing nothing but making very slight deviations from the previous day, week, month, and year? What you need is the strategy that generates returns in the most common market condition—when the market is trading sideways.
The Iron Condor is that strategy, and this book will teach you how to master it.
When other strategies, meant to be used in big market moves, underperform—the iron condor will enable you to generate income because it is a combination of two popular leverage options strategies: the bull-put credit spread and the bear-call credit spread, one of which will always be profitable. It’s no surprise that it is the go-to strategy the most experienced options traders use.
Iron Condor: Neutral Strategy for Uncommon Profits introduces you to this strategy with concepts, ideas, and rules of thumb gleaned from the PowerOptionsApplied newsletter’s successful trading of the iron condor over the past five years. But this book goes deeper than just theory and concept to bring you real-world examples featuring real profits and actual mistakes. From the professional experiences shared in this guide, you will learn to:
• Search for, find, analyze, enter, manage, roll, and exit the iron condor strategy
• Select the right security, including indexes and ETFs
• Determine the right broker to use when placing an iron condor trade
• Reduce and manage risk involved with trading iron condors
• Optimize the strategy for maximized returns
Complete with profit and loss diagrams and actual calculations, fact-based statistics and probability, this book gives you the knowledge you need to put the iron condor to work—and see how powerful this strategy can be for you.
