A No BS incoming earning strategy!

As traders, we want the best and most actionable ideas for right now.
No fluff...
No reading through 100 pages of an eBook to get one semi-helpful concept...
Here’s one freebie trading strategy below that is guaranteed to give you an ROI if implemented properly in a volatile market.
Long Put
A long put gives you the right to sell the underlying stock at a specific strike price. If there were no such thing as puts, the only way to benefit from a downward movement in the market would be to sell stock short. The problem with shorting stock is you’re exposed to theoretically unlimited risk if the stock price rises.
But when you use puts as an alternative to short stock, your risk is limited to the cost of the option contracts. If the stock goes up (the worst-case scenario) you don’t have to deliver shares as you would with short stock. You simply allow your puts to expire worthless or sell them to close your position  (if they’re still worth anything).
But be careful, especially with short-term out of the money puts. If you buy too many option contracts, you are actually increasing your risk. Options may expire worthless and you can lose your entire investment.
Puts can also be used to help protect the value of stocks you already own. These are called protective puts.
Don’t go overboard with the leverage you can get when buying puts. A general rule of thumb is this: If you’re used to selling 100 shares of stock short per trade, buy one put contract (1 contract = 100 shares). If you’re comfortable selling 200 shares short, buy two put contracts, and so on.
You may wish to consider buying an in the money  put, since it’s likely to have a greater delta (that is, changes in the option’s value will correspond more closely with any change in the stock price). Try looking for a delta of -.80 or greater if possible. In-the-money options are more expensive because they have intrinsic value, but you get what you pay for.
After the strategy is established, you want implied volatility to increase. It will increase the value of the option you bought, and also reflects an increased possibility of a price swing without regard for direction (but you’ll hope the direction is down).
