I saw a newsletter provider claiming to make 10% per month with iron condors. They say they do it years after years, occasionnaly they lose 30% in one month but go on to make 100% + per year . That doesn't look right to me , I understand the figures are calculated on the margin deposit but not being an option trader I would think in practice you don't commit 100% of your capital to each trade you make, that would be risking a blow up in case something goes really wrong such as Interactive Brokers liquidating your IC at crazy prices for a reason or another. Still just 5% per month every month would be like trading the holy grail , is it reasonable to expect such returns from that kind of strategy ? Ansbacher doesn't make such returns, just 30 % per year on average I believe.
