04/22 NDX Iron Butterfly – MAY/10

What a wild day!! NDX was trading at 2001 some point intra-day, and rallied all the way to 2047! Needless to say, market makers made their spreads really wide to compensate for such a sharp movement. The P/L got affected by that, and since it hit my contingent order in the last few minutes of trading, I ended up buying some of that as well. The position is down 5% due to these two factors. I’ve posted my game plan as of Today, notice that based on my estimations I would be down about 1% if this was a normal move to 2047.. It pays to keep things in perspective, bottom line I’m still looking to make 10% on the trade.
