Iron Condor Service

2006 to Present

All trades are documented and verifiable as we send each trade to five separate brokers for the autotrade program. All results shown below include commissions.

 

Returns shown below for 2013 and beyond are actual, realized, end-of-month returns for both self-managed and autotrade accounts, which include commissions of 70 cents per contract + $5 per leg ticket charge, and average fill prices. For the autotrade accounts 20% of the cash is allocated to each position where a maximum of 5 positions (iron condors) are open at any one time. The returns also take into account idle cash (cash not invested during the month) and reserve cash that represents 30% of the amount being traded. All trades are documented and verifiable as we send each trade to four separate brokers for the autotrade program.

Returns shown for 2012 and earlier represent actual, realized self-managed results that do not take into account reserve cash or idle cash.
