Anatomy of a Trade: DIA Strangle

From Theory To Practice

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.

In this, our latest iteration of the Anatomy of a Trade series, we work through the trade-by-trade adjustments to a recent short strangle we had on in DIA. Late in the trade’s life, we see that there came a pivotal moment, where we needed to make a strategic decision related to the shelf-life of the trade. Turns out, the strategic adjustment we did make ended up being a silver lining in an otherwise difficult trade. Mike, from Everyday Trader, joins us to discuss the entirety of the trade.
