Short Put Option Trading Strategy-Bullish Options Trading Strategies

A short put option strategy is a bullish option trading strategies in which the investor/trader believes that the underlying price will not fall below a certain level. Main motivation behind implementing a short put strategy is to profit from the premium linked while selling put option.


If the index/stock falls below the strike price of the put, the losses are possibly limitless, with little profit potential.


Profits of the investor/trader will be limited by the amount of the premium obtained. In other words, the premium obtained is the utmost profit a security operator can make from this transaction.
