SPX 1-dte

#SPX1dte Sold to Open $SPX Jan 26th 4150/4170-4465/4485 condors for 1.65, SPX at 4333, IV 32.1%, deltas -.04, +.07.

When I set this trade deltas were .06/.06… it filled a few seconds later when the SPX spiked up just a bit, but deltas move very quickly in this market.

The long side of the spread is just to lower the margin requirements by 10 points per contract vs. a outright sale of the put as a cash backed trade.
And it’s an ultra-cheap lottery ticket.
