Carefully executed option spreads are one of the few trading strategies that defy the rules of the risk-to-reward ratio. AppleOption’s Index Condor portfolio calculates the specific profit premium, risk levels, and exact exit points – all before we enter into the trade.
Predetermined Profit Premium
Due to the inherent construction of the Index Condor, we calculate the exact profit premium achieved from selling index condors every month. From in-depth analysis of market trends and charting patterns, we create a range in which the index shall trade within the next three to six weeks. If the index trades within the range, then the portfolio grows with significant profits. However, with our intelligent money management strategies, we also know exactly when to preserve capital.
One particular strength of trading Iron Condors stems from its ability to generate returns, regardless of which way the market is heading. This powerful trading method is non-directional. As long as the stocks stay within a certain range, you will see a return on your investment – whether we are in bear, bull, or sideways markets.
Trading Strategy and Goals
Designed for a patient investor willing to wait for consistent returns, our Index Condor portfolio adds yet another level of diversification for your portfolio. While our other portfolios focus on Apple Inc., trading Iron Condor index options allows investors to see long-term profits without experiencing much risk. We have found that trading index options through various indexes, such as the S&P 500 – SPY, Dow Jones – DIA, Russell 2000 – IWM, and NASDAQ – QQQQ, creates both diversification and increased profit potential.
We aim to create a consistent monthly return of 5% - 10% by enacting one to four trades each month, depending upon how many profitable set-ups arise in our analysis. In our past performance, we have easily surpassed our monthly goals, with an average 16.29% per trade. Since inception, our Index Condor portfolio has grown at an exceptional 81%!
Dedicated to improving your trading prowess, we send out real-time alerts, which contain in-depth explanations and analysis regarding the trade. Our Index Condor portfolio offers the intelligent investor a trading strategy that has tight risk management, yet significant profit potential.
