Option Strategy: [private_monthly]iron condor[/private_monthly]

Price at trade post: $2795

Reasoning: With 34 days till April expiration, I'm putting on a [private_monthly]Iron Condor on NDX. With an expected deviation of 100 points between now and April expiration, I'm selling the 2900 calls and the 2675 puts.[/private_monthly] The trade greeks are: -3 delta(neutral), 11.2 theta, and -76 vega. The probability of success on this trade is 83%. If NDX trades down quickly to 2750, we'll look to exit the trade for a quick gain. Setting upside stop at 2850 and downside stop at 2700 to either adjust or exit the trade.
