Nothing is free. This applies to everything in trading including selling premium in High IV environments. What is the cost to selling premium in various IV environments?


  • Sold 1 Standard Deviation Strangles in SPY, 45 DTE, Since 2005

  • Held to Expiration

  • Segregated by IVR levels

  • Recorded average P/L, success rate, standard deviation of P/L

Ultimately, the tastytrade Research Department found that as we sell in higher IVR, we earn higher P/L, however, we also experience greater swings in our portfolio.

Tune in for all the details and takeaways!
