    Money, meet mouth

    The strangle is too risky. You're better off with the vertical put spread. Sell say 160 contracts of the 30 $ put and BUY the $29 put for 160. Go for at least a net credit of 0.30. You make 5k if the stock is above 30, and your max loss is 11k. Thats my trade but you can scale it to whatever you are willing to invest.

      WHZ was at 19 in early november. As soon as the .76 distribution was announced it lost 4 points in one week. It was insane, all my nov itm calls expired worthless.
      Been taking one asskicking after another this autumn. Except for my puts post election.
