Hi Kevin,

Have been using Iron Condors in paper trades. Wondering why we look for delta 0.1 or below and not 0.2 or below with expiry say 3-4 weeks instead of 2 weeks. We can book profits at around 50% and sell more IC (closing earlier ones though).

Also, did you ever consider Implied Volatility in IC trades. These days IV for more indices is very low so can't have big strike ranges and make less money in premiums too.

Need also your thoughts on why QQQ and USO excluded. Both have comparatively higher IV historically (even these days have better IV than SPY, GLD and IWM). Would you recommend some stocks like AAPL to be included.

Your thoughts on the above would be helpful.

What i have read about monthly iron condors. Take your daily support and resistance and wait for the stock to hit the mid point and do you trade. Its not about when but where. Suck up a month or 2 of premium.

Karen SmithJodie began her trading career in the late fall of 1999, just prior to the crash caused by the bursting of the tech bubble in 2000. She began as a purely technical trader, relying on “stop-losses” to manage risk. It became very clear that she needed a better way, both to improve results and protect capital. The search for a better method led her to become a student of Options Animal in 2009 and she has been trading the OA way ever since. OA taught her how to use options to increase profits and more importantly, as a far superior tool for managing risk. It also taught her the importance of fundamentals to successful trading. Jodie now believes that one of the most important steps in successful trading, whether short or long term, is understanding the equity itself.

Prior to leaving the full time workforce to raise her three children, Jodie worked as a corporate litigator and before that, as a clerk to a Federal Judge in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Jodie was thrilled to have been asked to join the coaching team of Options Animal in January of 2014. She currently resides with her children, in Tarrytown, New York.
