There are good times and not-so-good times and as a trader, and it is important to understand the risks. That should be your number one concern. Selling a credit spread when volatility is low, typically causes losses so I wait for better conditions. It is better to avoid a loss by not trading when conditions are not favorable. So what I do is look at my overall gains during a longer timeframe and not so much in terms of a week or two to ensure that my focus is on risk and not on the next trading profit that I may be missing out on.
