WDIS Remix: The 50-50 Shot

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.

From one day to the next, one week to the next, or one month to the next, the stock market is a 50-50 proposition. The probability that a stock moves higher is 50%, and the probability that a stock moves lower is 50%. In the options world, too, we will sometimes find ourselves in similar 50-50 situations. Our preference is still for higher probability trades that skew the odds in our favor, but the occasional coin flip has a home, too. In today’s remix, we use an old WDIS segment to better understand how Vertical Spreads and Iron Condors can become 50-50 positions.
