Buy IWM sell puts & strangle

Buy IWM via selling puts and selling a strangle

Sell IWM Nov 74 puts
Sell IWM Dec 70/88 strangle (88 calls, 70 puts)

These filled in the morning. I take some small positions after many weeks of no trading. My only other trading position is short LGF Dec 11 puts. 

Why now? The stock almanac shows November to be a strong month. As always, seasonality is one of the weaker indicators. I have tons of free capital to deploy, and the recent selling squall is an opportunity to dip my little toe in the water.
