From our previous tastytrade research, we know that managing winners in SPY Strangles has outperformed holding to expiration since 2005. What if we started trading later than 2005? For example, what if we began trading in 2008 or 2011?

In this two-pronged study, the Research Team tested 1 Standard Deviation SPY Strangles, executing them from 2005 to 2017.

They compared the performances of managing winners and holding-to-expiration by first looking at Average Daily P/L and then at cumulative performance.
