Sold Straddles vs. Sold Strangles 5.00/5 (100.00%) 1 vote

If you are a straddle seller you have a greater maximum reward (credit for selling the options) but also a larger risk of losing all the reward and more if the stock moves too far from the strike price. If you are a strangle seller, you have a lower maximum reward (less time premium sold) but also a lower risk that the stock will move outside of the strangle strike window to lower the reward or even go to a deficit. The sold strangle has a lower potential profit than the sold straddle, however it offers greater protection since the share price must move further to result in a loss.
