On September 13, 2019 I made my first "successful" Iron Condors trade on Home Depot (HD) stock.

The idea for this trade is taken from Options Trading IQ article: TWO IRON CONDOR TRADE EXAMPLES – HD AND TLT

I did a little adjustment (shortened the wing size from 10 to 5) and sold just one contract (my margin has been close to 100%)

Date: September 13th, 2019

Stock Price: $233.98

Trade Set-Up:

Sell 1 HD Nov 15th, 215 puts @ $1.71

Buy 1 HD Nov 15th, 210 puts @ $1.25

Sell 1 HD Nov 15th, 255 calls @ $0.86

Buy 1 HD Nov 15th, 260 calls @ $0.49

  • Premium: $83 Net Credit
  • Maximum Risk: $500 ($417)
  • Potential Return: 16.6%
  • Breakeven Points: 214.17 and 256.60

I'm planning to keep the trade until the expiration or adjust legs if needed.
