BN Vertical Call Credit Spread

muhd_nihal Updated   
Following trade is for educational purposes only. An Iron Condor is an option strategy, where the expected outcome for next week is range-bound.

A CE option mentioned below is a European Call Option, while a PE option is a European Put.

A hedger always buys these options and a speculator mostly sells one.

But when the speculator only sells these options, the risk involved is unlimited and the margin requirement is also high. This is called naked option selling. When both CE and PE are sold, it is called a short strangle.

In combination with this, if we buy much farther CE and PE, the short strangle becomes an Iron condor. Here, the idea is to capture the option premium in a range-bound market with reduced risk and margin compared to short straddle.

The spread between buy and call leg is based on optimum use of margin. Since the option premium is credited to us in advance, it is also a credit spread.

Since this week the view is bearish , we are taking only the CE leg of Iron Condor. As the week progresses, additional trade may be added.

Sell 34900PE, Buy 34300PE

Convert to Iron Condor
Will bailout of Call leg during mean reversion, a probable breakout above 35800
Exited 36000CE, 36600CE
Out of context trade:

There was a probable breakout as said above and we exited on time,
But there is an additional game here,
It is to go for a debit spread,

For instance,
We had a 36000CE sell and 36600CE buy,
If 36600CE was exited and you bought 35700CE buy,
Then setup would be like,
35700CE buy, 36000CE sell

This is called a debit spread (since the net premium is debited from you)

I am telling this for educational purposes only. Please consult your financial adviser before taking any trade positions.
Or you can add higher PE legs,

But all these trades are not part of this trading model,
Hence, not giving exact trade, just commenting so that you get the thought process behind different types of trades.
