With capital constraints, many traders prefer to define their risk. Taking a short put to a vertical or a strangle to an iron condor has several benefits including lower capital requirements, fixed maximum profit and loss, and an easily calculable probability of success.
As with undefined risk trades, we like to set clear profit targets. We try to manage vertical spreads and iron condors at 50% and iron flies at 25% max profit. Unlike undefined trades, we manage less aggressively for defined risk trades because of their defined loss.
