I have done well selling naked puts, and I have begun to sell bull put spreads. Is there any good source to discuss the differences in using bull put spreads v. bull call spreads. I tend to like receiving the credit up front. The put spreads have margin requirements and have limited upside. I like receiving the credit on the credit spreads rather than the debit on the call spreads, but am I short changing my ultimate results.

If I was very bullish on a certain position, I could sell a put spread and buy a credit spread on the same position.

What are the thoughts of others on this?
