Long Straddle

A long straddle is a multi-leg, risk-defined, neutral strategy with unlimited profit potential. Long straddles have no directional bias but require a large enough move in the underlying asset to exceed the combined break-even price of the two long options.

Long straddles are ultra-aggressive option buying strategies. We highly advise not using these strategies regardless of how "great" the stock setup looks. They profit from a big move in any direction, but since you need to buy both call and put options ATM, your break-even prices are much wider. If you do decide to use this strategy, you'll want to use them only during periods of very low implied volatility to minimize the cost of buying the options.
