Straddle

The 

Purchase

 or sale of an equal number of puts and 

Call

, with the same strike price and 

Expiration date

. A 

Straddle

 provides the opportunity to 

Profit

 from a prediction about the future 

Volatility

 of the 

Market

Long

 straddles are used to 

Profit

 from 

High

 volatility. 

Long

 straddles can be effective when an investor is confident that a stock price will change dramatically, but cannot predict the direction of the move. 

Short

 straddles represent the opposite prediction, that a stock price will not change.
