  4. right with all calls.... condors i typically think of as a bull put credit and a bear call credit.. but i wasn't really trying to get techincal about the "name" of it but more or less what people thought about being involved in this trade near expiration.. being as it near that money options have so much gamma at this stage.. its alot less risk per potential return.. and if your putting the spread on inbetween the strikes with the most interest?
