Short Put

A short put is a single-leg, bullish options strategy with undefined risk and limited profit potential. A short put is sold when the seller believes the price of the underlying asset will be above the strike price on or before the expiration date.

A short put is an undefined risk trade where you are selling options below the current market price of the stock anticipating a drop in IV and/or the stock to remain above your strike price. This is one of the key building blocks for income and premium selling strategies because you collect a credit when the trade is entered and typically have a very high probability of success. If you are a traditional stock investor, selling puts on stocks you may want to own in the future is a great way to wait for the stock to drop in price, while collecting income along the way should it remain higher.
