Trading Credit Spreads and Iron Condors in a Volatile Market

Lightspeed customers can learn about credit spreads and iron condors with Dan Sheridan.

There are a few options strategies that active traders can use while trading – credit spreads and iron condors are two that we will be focusing on during this webinar. When trading options, a credit spread is when a high premium option is written, and a low premium option is bought on the same underlying security. On the other hand, an iron condor involves four different contracts that are typically out-of-the-money. During this webinar, Dan Sheridan from Sheridan Options Mentoring will break down the two.

  • Why these trades are useful for income generation
  • Which vehicles should you use for these trades
  • Market indicators to help avoid extreme market conditions
  • How to formulate a plan for these trades
  • How to deal with these trades when the market goes against you
