The IWM Analysis has been posted.

10:40 a.m. New York time

I generally like to carry half a dozen options positions at a time. I had five going into the 4th of July holiday, when U.S. markets were closed, and have now rounded out the set by entering a short iron condor position on IWM, which tracks the Russell 2000. I’ll post the analysis shortly.

Tim Bovee, Private Trader tracks the analysis and trades of a private trader for his own accounts. Nothing in this blog constitutes a recommendation to buy or sell stocks, options or any other financial instrument. The only purpose of this blog is to provide education and entertainment.

No trader is ever 100 percent successful in his or her trades. Trading in the stock and option markets is risky and uncertain. Each trader must make trading decisions for his or her own account, and take responsibility for the consequences.
