This represented a loss of $(85), 10% of the margin/risk and our pre-set max loss for the trade. It's always difficult to swallow a loss, but we have only incurred one other loss this year on the weekly Iron Condor, so still very favorable results for the year.
As always, stay keen on your risk management and trade carefully,
