Recommended trade entry for Friday, July 24

Option Code: SPXW150731

Expiration Date: Friday, July 31.

Recommended Trade Entry:

- SELL SPX July 5 2130 Calls, currently $1.05. Delta of short call: .08. Please note that I am recommending selling a lower delta on the call side than usual; after two days of selloff I am hoping to avoid a "whipsaw" if the market rallys.

- BUY SPX July 5 2140 Calls, currently $.40.

- SELL SPX July 5 2050 Puts, currently $3.20. Delta of short put: -.14.

- BUY SPX July 5 2040 Puts, currently $2.40.

It is recommended to place the order as a single entry: SELL " Iron Condor".

Current mid price for all four legs: $1.45. We recommend trying to get filled for the mid or a few cents below; $1.25 is the suggested minimum credit for this trade.

Please note: Traders should always be aware of any news events that may cause a sudden move in the market. If that occurs, it is recommended to immediately cancel the working order until things settle. Depending on the move that may occur, the above strikes may need to be changed to appropriate strikes within the .10 - .15 range. It is each individual's responsibility to select the strikes they feel most comfortable with, depending on trading style and risk tolerance.

Update will be posted with exact position details when the trade is opened.
