In 2014 and 2015 Amy concentrated on her Weirdor strategy and didn’t trade the Nested Iron Condor each month during those years. However here’s what one of her students had to say about it who has been consistently trading the strategy since taking her Nested IC class in 2013:

Dated June 1, 2015

Hi Amy,

Just a brief note to thank you far all you did to teach me how to trade your Nested HPIC strategy. While I have made a couple of little tweaks to suit my trading personality, my plan is essentially your plan.

So far this year, I have not had a losing trade. I am still in JULY, but have half of the Call side off and am up about 5% on max margin. In the (now) seven months of this year, I have only had to make five total adjustments. All my trades have been closed with contingent orders.

Trading your strategy has allowed us to generate enough monthly income to pay for our multi-month trips to Europe and the Caribbean and to donate to our favorite charities, as well.

Again, thank you VERY MUCH and ALL THE BEST!

Then again on Feb 24, 2016 he wrote:

Hi, Amy:

I am sorry that I will miss your roundtable discussion this afternoon. We are in the Caribbean for a couple of months and had committed to a cocktail party this afternoon before I got Tom's email.

Just know that I am still trading the Nested HPIC successfully. It is SO easy to manage, even in the Caribbean where we have some occasional internet issues.

A couple of months this year (2016) were small losers, but I have my April trade on now and it is in the center of the graph after two early Put side adjustments, and is currently up 5+% with half of my Call side off.

Thanks again for introducing me to this strategy.
