After entering on a put credit spread trade, if you have a stock that continues to fall against your position the first adjustment that you should make is to sell a corresponding call spread above the market and take in more credit. Similar to how we mechanically make this adjustment with credit call spreads, the trigger for this adjustment in our system is when the short put strike reaches a 0.30 delta. When you keep the number of contracts exactly the same as well as the width of the strikes you take no additional risk and increase your possible profit should the stock remain range bound inside your new iron condor.
