Anatomy of a Trade: XLV 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 this latest version of an Anatomy of a Trade, we examine a recent short straddle in XLV. Much like the other AOAT segments, this discussion gives us another play-by-play example of trade management, when a trade initially goes against us. Today’s segment is especially helpful because it highlights the impact of tranche size and scaling into strength.
