Iron condor options strategy? These are just 2 Spreads. You have a Bear Call Spread on the top end and a Bull Put Spread on the bottom end and you are really trying to frame a trading range for the underlying security. If the market stays within that trading range, you profit. This limits your risk. Very complicated strategy. Expensive with 4 commissions in and 4 commissions out. (See Top Picks.)

October 29, 2012

Buy March 141 Straddle at $12.68 with a Call at $6 and a Put at $6.68. This will profit if the market moves significantly one way or the other and he would take a hard look at actively managing this straddle after you put it on, because the straddles are relatively cheap right now and there are ways to actively manage this.

(A Top Pick Dec 21/11. Down 20.4%.) This was a straddle on S&P 500 ETF. This is a non-directional trade that goes up or down but you need the market to move more significantly than the $25 you paid for it. However, the Call is up and if you are holding it, you should sell the Call and just hold onto the Put until December.

Bear Call Spread. Selling $140 September Calls and Buying the $145 September Calls. He is not bullish on the stock market. If the stock is below $140 come September, you get to keep the net credit of about $1.70. if the market does take off your risk is capped at $145.

This is a market where he does not see sudden growth. Using covered calls in this kind of environment works pretty well. Wants to pick up 5% over 6 months plus point or two on dividends. Using covered calls on this one to get the upside. You do have currency risk but he doesn’t think that is a problem with the Canadian dollar where it is.

(A Top Pick Dec 21/11. Down 21.40%.) This is a volatility trade, i.e., he is not looking at what direction the market is going but only that it is going to move more than $25 up or down from the $125 strike price. Currently a little under water but is good until Dec/12.

SPDR S&P 500 ETF. Buy Sept $135 Calls and Buy Sept $135 puts. The total cost for the straddle should not exceed US $13.60 per share. Fed seems to have its hand under the market and supporting it. Something could blind side it giving a significant short lived sharp downturn. If the market goes one way or the other significantly between now and Sept, this straddle will make money. Look to get about 120% on one side of it. Doesn’t know which side first. Whichever side makes enough to cover the cost of the straddle, take it off and leave the other one on.

Sell Dec 1/17 Calls @ $3.25 and Buy Dec 1/27 Calls @ $0.40. (Dec 1/27 Call is hedging your upside.) Not sure the S&P 500 has got much upside beyond $1170 and feels $1200 would be the highest. This Bear Call Spread will be profitable up to about $1190 on the S&P 500. Don't hold this to maturity!

Would look at HSD and HOD from Horizons, but they are short-term products (2X Leveraged). HUI is an inverse for the S&P 500, as an alternative.

S&P 500. The longer your time horizon, the better your opportunities. If you are a believer that the world economies will recover in 3 years, this one will recover. ETF’s give you the advantage of not having to study the individual securities that you have no choice in the weightings.

Gives exposure to the S&P 500 and it blankets both growth and value. He would rather tilt more towards S&P Growth. This is a point in the economic cycle where historically growth has outperformed value. He would rather do iShares S&P 500 Growth (IVW-N).
