Reverse Iron Butterfly


This Strategy involves simultaneously selling a call option and a put option at one strike price, buying a call option and a put option at a lower strike price, and selling a call option and a put option at an even lower strike price. All of the options have the same expiration date and are typically used in a neutral market outlook. The strategy is designed to profit from a narrow trading range in the underlying security.
The trader profits from the strategy if the price of the underlying security remains within a certain price range at expiration. If the price of the security is outside of this range, the trader will experience a loss.
