I’ve updated XLY Analysis with results.

2:50 p.m. New York time

I’ve exited my last remaining position built from options expiring September 20. The short iron condor was on XLY, and I exited for a $0.82 debit. Results to come shortly. The exit came 21 days prior to expiration, which under my rules is the day I manage all winning trades. In XLY’s case, the exit came at 9.9% of maximum potential profit.

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.
