Great job and great website for people like me who are starting to learn about options. It´s a pitty the research finished on August 21st, just before the market crashed. I suppose the results would change a little.

Thanks for your feedback Fernando.

Agreed. It's unfortunate that I didn't start my SPX and RUT straddle series a little later, so that I could include the Aug 24 drop in the testing.

These straddle tests do include several market drops including the 2008/2009 period as well as the 2010 flash crash...not to mention other drops in between Jan 2007 through Aug 2015 expiration cycles.

I'm not sure the Aug 24 drop would have had too big of an impact on the total results...the win rate would have dropped slightly along with returns.
