New Trade : SPX

Stock / Symbol: S&P500 Index / SPX

Option Strategy: [private_monthly]reverse iron condor / double vertical [/private_monthly]
Price at trade post: $1993

Reasoning: Normally, I'd be putting on an Iron Condor here on SPX. However, as the market has been quite volatile lately, with the VIX relatively low, and without knowing how the market will react to tomorrow's Fed announcement, I'm going with a reverse iron condor / double vertical on SPX using October's option expiration. I'm working with a Standard deviation of[private_monthly] +/- 125[/private_monthly] by Oct 16th. The greeks going into this trade are: -0.9 delta, 8.4 theta, and -29 vega.
