What is a inverse iron butterfly?

DirectionalLimited ProfitLimited Loss

The opposite of a iron butterfly. This strategy is a net debit and unlike the long butterfly, it doesn't offer a very risk/reward ratio. If the stock moves in either direction you can net a small profit.

If volatility increases, the profitable range and chance of profit will increase as well. Time is harmful when the position is unprofitable, but helpful once it becomes profitable.
