The objective of this strategy is to systematically capture options premiums that will generate a modest flow of income while having a defined amount of downside risk. A strategy like this is typically used when the investor expects a moderate rise in the price of the underlying asset, whether it is an individual stock, index, or ETF. This strategy is constructed by purchasing one put option while simultaneously selling another put option with a higher strike price. The goal of this strategy is realized when the price of the underlying stays above the higher strike price, which causes the short option to expire worthless, resulting in the trader’s keeping the premium. The monthly downside is measured by the “window of risk” or spread between the strike prices of the two put options minus the premium that was captured.
