At what point can we expect to manage Iron Condors from a days to expiration and a profit percent perspective?

Study
  • SPY
  • 2005 - present
  • 45 days
  • Short 30 delta options
  • 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 wings

We find that for an average winning trade, the 50% management day comes around day 40, and the percent profit at 21 days is around 10%. Regardless of the width, winning iron condors tend to reach profit % targets in a similar number of days.
