Recently I've been looking at IC's as a passive trading tool.

I'm not an expert on Condors. This thread is posted to track trades and start out betting small to see how it plays out.

The basic strategy I've started out with is to sell Delta 10 strikes and hedge one or two strikes lower.

At the moment there is a single trade on in SPX and in NDX. Looking at NDX Risk, my trades in the future, if there are any, will most likely be confined to SPX.

Updates on positions will be posted as soon after the position is put on or changed. Posts here will not be frequent, as the strategy is supposed to be rather passive. So at least I hope my posts will not be frequent.

The header will probably be changed as experience warrants.
