I've found an autotrade service that trades wide and low iron condors. It loses 1-2 times per year for a 10 to 20 to 35% loss through trade management. Losses occure when the markets make bigger moves up or down. Otherwise it does well enough after fees to make it appear worthwhile. I've allocated 70% of one account to this strategy. The account is held 100% in cash so far. I'm not sure the exact rate it but the broker does pay some small amount on the cash. The broker will extend buy power to trade the iron condors for any mutual funds etc. held for more than 30 days. I'm trying to determine if there is something I can buy and hold with 2/3 or more of the cash that will provide a steady (5-7%?) return. Would be nice to find something that isn't likely to suffer a 10% drop at the same time the condor trades go south. Is there anything out there or should just I settle for the brokers money market rate?
