Over the course of 13 years, we have had success over time for short premium strategies. However, there were outlier moves to the downside. How does managing early reduce a trader's exposure to these black swan events.Study:
- SPY, 2005-present, 45 DTE
- 16 strangles
- Compared managing at 21 DTE and holding to expiration
We find that although on average, holding to expiration is more profitable per trade, you reduce 67% of outlier moves (P/L less that -$500 in a trade) by managing at 21 DTE.
