Anatomy of a Trade: TLT 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.

Today, we run through another anatomy of a trade with a straddle that was recently put on in TLT, in an effort to capitalize on the inevitable volatility crush from the FOMC meeting. Not long ago, we worked a straddle in GDXJ, but this trade was completely different in both its intent and management. Thus, our discussion today highlights how the same strategy in two different underlyings will often unfold in its own unique way.

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

Version 3: TWTR Super Bull

Version 4: GDXJ Straddle
