Closing Trade : NDX

Stock / Symbol: Nasdaq 100 / NDX

Option Strategy:iron condor
Trade entry date / price: Mar 15 / $2795
Price at this post: $2814

Reasoning: Currently, this position’s greeks are: -3.3 delta(neutral), 14.8 theta, and -64.4 vega. Although the trade was put on (and still is) with a neutral delta, I did skew it to the downside by putting on more upside risk. With the position up over 5% already, I’m going to take profits here to protect against an upside pop in the market.
