Playing the Quarterly’s on the SPX

Mar 26th, 2012 | By | Category: General Comments, Options Education
This post is the first in a series that we will be publishing over the next month , tracking the hypothetical performance of broken wing butterfly trades selected by Greg Loehr of Optionsbuzz.com.

In the law there is an expression, "the wheels of justice grind slowly". To bearish butterfly traders, one of the most annoying market conditions is the slow upward grind of the vehicle that we are trading--in this case the Russell 2000. This trade, which is predicated on the premise that all rallies experience a pullback at one point, is elongated Read more [...]
