Vary IV Rank Time Spans

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.

At tastytrade we default to IV Rank with a one year time span, but what happens if we change that time span? Our research team ran a study to see if there was any significance to our trade entry when changing our IV Rank frame.

The Study
  • SPY 2006-Present
  • IVR > 50
  • Straddles managed at 25%
  • Compare IVR time spans:
    • 2 Years
    • 1 Year
    • 6 Months
    • 3 Months
The Results
  • Average P/L is highest for 1 year time span
  • Win ratio is almost the same for all time spans

This study shows that defaulting to the 1 year time span IVR is the most efficient. Tune in as Tom and Tony interpret the results on a deeper level!
