Last edited by Michael Hodges; at I've been experimenting with strangles using the 5 minute options. I don't try to go for big moves but instead look for options that are slightly out of the money to sell and are slightly in the money to buy in order to get "safer" returns.
The payouts are not as big as when trading directionally but do not require the asset price to move at all, in fact, these do better when prices do not move.
The basic thing I do is look on the trading chart where it shows the available strike prices. This means for sure one of the trades will close in the money.. I usually buy in at the same time, or as close together as I can, but you can try to "leg" in, that is, buy one and then wait a bit and buy the other. This technique works if you can buy the long position when prices are lower, and then sell the short position when prices are higher.
The same idea is true for exit, you can hold to expiration if you'd like, but if prices are bouncing around and you are able to close either or both positions at a profit then that is OK too.
Also can be done on longer term expiry, here is a look at a possible trade with end of week expiry. The best part of this strategy is that both positions have a buffer of room they can move before moving OTM. Thanks for posting this thread Michael, I hope it stays active. Been doing much better lately in my Nadex demo thanks to your advice and the encouragement of others here.
I've been testing the old iron butterfly as well. Around 7pm central, I choose a end of day expiry which expires at 10pm. The market seems pretty quiet at this time with plenty of strikes for sale and no news to throw things out of whack. I've been prepared to jump out if necessary on either end, but I've yet to have to do that this week Quick question Michael, how do handle risk management with Nadex? I like taking ITM trades where probabilities are so much more in my favor but my up front costs are higher.
It's so much more complicated than traditional BO. Do you have a formula that you use? It's basic position sizing technique same as is used with standard options. In this case I would round up to buy 6 lots since it's so close. If it were like 5. However, for you using the iron butterfly you would take the total cost of your trade.
Can you explain a little more about how the iron butterfly you are trading works? Hi folks,would like joint to this thread,I did start practicing on demo. I am quit fresh on Nadex,of course have many questions in the future. Michael Hodges thanked this post. Is there any different between trading on demo and live account of cuorse except real money Hey Darius, I'm wondering the same thing since I've yet to go live. Michael, thanks for your formula technique on risk management.
I'll be stashing it in my tool box. As far as the Iron Butterfly trade, I'll break down how I set up the trade tonight. Sorry I can't provide the fancy screenshot pics like you being just the nave that I am. Around 7pm central I look at the strike prices for the end of day expires which expire at 10pm central. I look at the strike prices that are 40 pips apart. Then I just monitor the chart starting with the 30 min for the first two hours, then the 15 min for the last hour.
I haven't had to bail out yet, but if I don't feel right and the price is dancing in the danger on either end of the channel during the last hour, I aim to bail out with a loss that that would be covered by the profit on the other end of the butterfly. Tonight, I sold a put at Of course this is not foolproof, but Still a solid method so far.
I'm going to dabble in your 5 min strangle strategy tonight, I'm a candle burner and practice on the Asian session a lot. Originally Posted by charlamange1st. Originally Posted by DaVychi. This is an example of potential trade set ups for NADEX using a hedging strategy in 20 minute trading.
The idea is to make gains with as little risk as possible using in-the-money option strikes for non-directional trading. If not, returns look like this.
Thoughts; The return on risk isn't great, but the risk the trade will close out of the money are much lower than with the first scenario. This is possible by legging into a trade. Legging into it means buying one position when the time is right, and then selling the other when the time is right, or vice versa. In the case of this example the options closed with prices just below My final thought, using the 20 minute options I might want to target immediately, with the first 5 minutes?
