What is a bull put ladder?

DirectionalLimited ProfitLimited Loss

A bull put ladder is an extension to the bull put spread, as it now includes another long put. The name suggests it is a bullish strategy, but it is actually bearish or bullish, since it has a nearly infinite gain on the downside, and a capped gain on the upside.

This strategy requires significant volatility to be profitable. Time is harmful when the position is unprofitable, but helpful once it becomes profitable.
