Using recent pieces of research, we are able to extrapolate an account size necessary to conduct the trades and strategies that we do at tastytrade.
Note: This is a base case calculation and should not be used as a cut and dry figure. The account size derived in this calculation is the absolute maximum we would employ. Additionally, the IV and credit relative to buying power used were all assumed to be LOW. Meaning that you can get away with getting the same dollar return with a smaller account than the formula would suggest.
