We did not get filled yesterday on the September 1 Iron Condor.

As of this morning, futures are up about 5 points so it appears the latest "Putin effect" is being ignored (for now, anyway). Next week will be key when volume picks up as investors return from the long weekend.

I plan to attempt to open a weekly SPX Iron Condor for the September 1 cycle this morning. There is a bit of economic news on the calendar, so I will wait until that is released:

8:30 am Personal Income and Outlays

9:45 am Chicago PMI

9:55 am Consumer Sentiment

I will post an update later this morning.

As always, stay keen on your risk management and trade carefully,
