All Our Trades, For Better… And Less So.

Note on determining profits for zero premium trades:

At the least expensive online brokerages, a zero premium trade with 10 pairs of options traded costs roughly $15 to initiate.  Using this as our base cost, we’ve calculated the profits on the trades below, knowing that either more or less pairs traded will change the P/L results dramatically.

We did not include costs to close trades because sometimes they close at expiry (without commissions), while others are closed out early.  For the sake of uniformity, we left closing commissions out of our calculation altogether.  In a worst case scenario, investors may be obligated to shell out another $15 to close before expiry.

All percentages are calculated as precisely as possible, but timing and execution will affect outcomes.
