Shorter Duration or Managing Earlier

Market Measures

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.

Since tastytraders tend to manage strangles at 50% of the initial credit received, why can’t we just trade shorter duration expirations?

In this segment, we compared three strategies:

  • Holding to expiration, 22 DTE strangle
  • Managing winners at 50%, 45 DTE Strangle
  • Managing position at 50% of the timing remaining, 45 DTE strangle

Their average and long-term performance results are interesting.

Watch this segment with Tom and Tony and their takeaways.
