April Performance Review

We usually provide public performance updates on a quarterly basis, but I wanted to share this news a little early.

The Condor Options newsletter strategy returned  7.2% for the April expiration cycle, bringing our YTD return above 20%, which easily beats both the S&P 500 -up 10.7% – and the closer benchmark, the CBOE Vol Arb Index (VTY), which is up 11.7%.

The strategy hasn’t had a losing month since last August. As I’ve mentioned in previous quarterly reviews, it looks like the improved performance is due to 1) an expansion of our coverage universe beyond the S&P 500 to include crude oil, the euro, gold and other equity indexes, plus 2) a change to our trade entry criteria.
