Bullish Debit Spread or Credit Spread?

Choosing between using a debit spread or credit spread for a bullish stock setup requires that we first take a look at where implied volatility is trading. If IV is high then we want to be a net seller of options and would opt for selling a put credit spread below the market. If IV is low then we want to be a net buyer of options and would alternatively opt for buying an ATM call debit spread.
