The Mark III iron condor is a lower probability Iron Condor compared with our first XJO Iron Condor Model Portfolio (lets call it Mark I for short). The short options in Mark III are sold at 20 Delta resulting in higher premiums collected but a narrower profit zone when compared with Mark I where the short options are sold at 10 delta. Unlike Mark I where we simply held our trades to expiry, we actively manage our positions in this model portfolio in a similar way to what we did in the Iron Butterfly Model Portfolio. We take profit at 50% of premium collected and close losing trades when losses exceed 100% of premium collected. Click on the link below for the Trading Plan of this model portfolio.
