Cut Complexity with Call Condor Spreadsheets

One of the most powerful tools available to traders today is options trading. Options are often used to gain leverage to enhance returns or hedge against risk. Of all the powerful strategies, the Call Condor is a favorite as it allows for careful risk management with potentially high profits.

What is a Call Condor?

A Call Condor (or Iron Condor) is an options strategy used to create a profit from neutral or range-bound markets. Two spreads are involved—a bear call spread and a bull put spread—to build a structure like a butterfly in the shape of a condor.

The bear call spread consists of one sold call option with a higher strike price, and one purchased call option with lower strike price. The bull put spread consists of one sold put option with a lower strike price, and one purchased put option with a higher strike price.
These options are set to expire at the same time.

Benefits of the Call Condor

The Call Condor offers many benefits to limitations in risk and potential profit. The maximum loss is equal to the difference in strike prices minus the net credit received. Maximum profit potential is the net credit received. As the trade move further away from that sweet spot of maximum profit/minimum risk, the risk of loss increases and the maximum profit decreases.

Using volatility as an indicator can be beneficial when trading the condor. Higher or lower than expected implied volatility can result in less favorable option premiums, affecting the profitability of the trade.

Call Condor Spreadsheets

Using Call Condor Spreadsheets can be a great way to manage the complexity of trading these strategies. MarketXLS offers powerful spreadsheets specific to Iron Condors and other popular Options Strategies, like the Iron Condor Excel Template and Short Iron Butterfly Explained Excel Template.
