2/17 NDX Iron Butterfly (MAR)

2/17 Update: Opened the adjustment butterfly, by re-positioning I cut the deltas by a little bit and give myself more room to the up-side and down-side.

2/16 Update: NDX went back up and hit the adjustment spot. Contingent orders kicked in and closed the butterfly. Will re-open Tomorrow.

2/15 Update: NDX took a retreat from Today's High, if you ask me the candle chart patterns seems quite bearish. I'm glad my contingent orders are only triggered at end of day, otherwise it would have hit it intra-day Today.

2/14 Update: NDX was down most of the day, by the final hour all indexes bounced back up and higher.. As of now very close to the adjustment level.

2/13 Update: NDX moved back higher Today, volatility seems to have dissolved from last Friday, it is again close to the adjustment point. Contingent orders are on stand-by to trigger if needed.
