Iron Condor play on POT

A Canadian one this time. When takeover rumors were spread by August this year, Potash of Saskatchewan suddenly sky-rocketed from the 90's to 140's. Since then, it has been pretty much trapped in a sweet range.

Today I want to speculate on this price movement with a neutral approach: an Iron Condor.

Here is my idea:

Buy 1 Jan 130 PUT @1.13 (-$113)
Sell 1 Jan 135 PUT @2.36 (+$236)
Sell 1 Jan 145 CALL @2.57 (+$257)
Buy 1 Jan 150 CALL @1.29 (-$129)

PROFIT RANGE : POT stays between 132.50 and 147.49 by January 22.
MAXIMUM RISK: $249 if POT goes outside our profit range

So long!
