December SPX Unbalanced Iron Condor

Trade Details:

8 December SPX 2720/2725 Credit Put spread @0.35 credit each
1 December SPX 3160/3170 Credit Call spread @1.00 credit

The Put side is 5-points wide this time due to liquidity issues. I wasn't getting the fill on a 2715/2725 spread. So, I went with a 5-point wide (2720/2725) and doubled the number of spreads. Risk-wise it is almost as if I was trading my usual   4 to 1  (4 Put spreads vs 1 Call spreads both 10-point wide)
Net Credit: $380
Max Risk: $3,620
59 days to Exp.

Trade Update - November 12, 2019

Closed Call side:
1 December SPX 3160/3170 Credit Call spread @2.70 debit

Original Credit received was 1.00
Net loss of 1.70 = $170 for one spread.

The Put side is still in play and with its credit of $280 it will be more than enough to overcome this loss on the Call side.
