It is recommended to place the order as a single entry: SELL " Iron Condor".
Current mid price for all four legs: $29.75. We recommend trying to get filled for the mid, or slightly below.
Note that because this is a 50-point wide Iron Butterfly, the gross margin requirements in a Reg-T account is $5,000 per contract. Your broker will deduct this amount, less actual credit received, from your account when the order fills.
An update will be posted with exact position details when the order is filled.
