Iron Condor Butterfly Magic Put Adjustment
During the ‘flash crash’ where the dow sunk 1000 points we had an iron butterlfy position on that performed remarkably well thanks to a simple, cheap, way out of the money put adjustment we had made earlier in the day.

A couple hours before the big drop, we put on a simple put adjustment due to our position hitting some greek criteria. When the crash happened, that cheap little way out of the money put quickly blew our position (which was showing a loss of around -2.5% at the beginning of the day) into a profitable position of over +20% as the market fell out of bed.
