#Earnings I had two each of the #IronButterly and the #IronCondor. I have now closed one of each for less than max loss. Holding the others as it looks possible that AMZN may actually end the day decently.

AMZN Earnings

#Earnings Volatility in the last few minutes got me filled on this, despite very wide bid/ask spreads.
Sold to Open $AMZN July 28th 1037.5/1042.50/1092.5/1097.5 #IronCondor for 3.50. Max risk, 1.50. Set the order when AMZN was at 1068, filled when it was at 1053.

Over last 12 quarters, Biggest UP move: 14.1%, Biggest DOWN move: -9.6%, Average move: 7.4%. This trade is +3.8% and -1.0% OTM.

When you reduce to the last 6 quarters, the moves are smaller: Biggest UP move: 9.6%, Biggest DOWN move: -7.6%, Average move: 4.6%.

Also considering a 20-point wide #IronButterfly, which I may sell at end of the day.
