Anatomy of a Trade: GDXJ Straddle

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 today’s segment, we run through the Anatomy of a Trade version 4.0 – a recent battle with GDXJ that began as a short straddle. We work through all aspects of this trade’s management throughout its life, from creating an inverted strangle to adjusting our deltas by reverse gamma scalping. If you’re interested in seeing a case study on how to manage a straddle that shot away from you right from the very start, then this is exactly that.

Be sure to check out the first three iterations of FTTP’s rendition of an Anatomy of a Trade!

Version 1: TSLA Strangle (in an IRA)

Version 2: DIS Diagonal
