Should I sell options during low volatility environments?

A reader recently contacted me with the following question:

"I was just curious about how to approach low Implied Volatility with the strategy. Do you still trade the strategy during times of low volatility or wait for higher IV and stay out of the market?"



To clarify, he is referring, among all the things I do, only to the  neutral trading, Option Premium selling oriented via Iron Condors, Elephants or just simple Credit spreads, whose results by the way are available here.

Selling Puts during Low volatility

It is always nice to sell options during high volatility environments. Premiums are higher and you can also position your strikes farther out of the money. However, there are many extended periods in the markets characterized by low volatility. Should we keep selling Puts in those scenarios?

BXY has been superior to BXM (At the Money Calls) in terms of absolute returns, but it has been more volatile than BXM.
