Hi XfatOx,

Another thought too.

You can also sell the put, take the premium, and if the stock goes up rebuy the put for a portion of the premium given. And if the stock goes down again you can then resell the same put over again increasing the money you collect on it that month. I usually stick with one-two months options because the percentage annualized return is greater.

This is just another thought. The put contract can be traded the same as the underlying security.
