Pitt, I wonder what you mean with 8-10 delta? Is it 0.08 to 0.10 delta value in IB columns?
I have been trading condors for a while but found that you if have some winners you only need one loser to get back to zero.

Oh and one point for IB: You can withdraw funds once a month without being charged a fee.

Also: how far out are your condors??? One thing I do is to stay away from Rut....it's crazy. I use IWM instead for three reasons. you have 1.00 increments so you can move up or down easily to adjust. The spreads are tight. and lastly I thind the market makers are aware of Rut being so popular. The prices don't seem to flow as they should. Hope this helps
