Below is some analysis of year-to-date performance of my #SPX1dte strategy. It compares the width of my condor (number of SPX points between short strikes, ranging from 70 to 305), and premium collected (ranging from .85 to 1.80, but shown on chart as 85.00 to 180.00). The VIX daily closing price is also shown at top for reference.
The main finding is that the orange bars, representing width, have dropped a lot in recent weeks. Premium used to be consistently below width, and now it is consistenly higher. Volatility struck this week but we were not able to get an increase in width, which led to my terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week.
