Long Put Ladder

Long Put Ladder is a strategy that must be devised when the investor is moderately bearish on the market direction and expects volatility to be less in the market.

A Long Put Ladder strategy is formed by buying “In-the-Money Put Option”, selling one “At-the-Money Put Option” and one “Out-of-the-Money Put Option”.

A Long Put Ladder is an extension of Bear Put Spread.

The investor will benefit if the underlying Stock/ Index remains between Strike prices of the Put Options.

Investor view: Neutral on direction and bearish on Stock/ Index volatility.

Risk: Unlimited.

Reward: Limited.

Breakeven: Total Strike prices of Short Puts – Strike price of Long Put -/+ net premium received/paid.
