New TradeStock / Symbol: Russell 2000 / RUT

Option Strategy: [private_monthly]iron condor[/private_monthly]

Price at trade post: $818

Reasoning: With 34 days till September expiration, it's time to put on a new [private_monthly]Iron Condor on RUT. The calls we're selling have a delta of .13 and the puts we're setting have a .05 delta. The probability of success on this trade is 88%. If RUT either trades up to $842 or down to $745, we'll either stop out of the trade or adjust by rolling to a further out of the money call or put spread. As usual, once filled, immediately set separate GTC orders to buy back the put spread and the call spread for $0.15 each. [/private_monthly]
