What is a cash-secured put?

IncomeLimited ProfitLimited Loss

A simple income strategy for neutral to slightly-bearish situations when you are willing to acquire stock at strike price A (making you bullish in the long term).

By selling a cash-secured put, you receive a small premium and the obligation to buy 100 shares of the underlying if the stock expires below price A. This allows you to make consistent income while also having the chance of purchasing the stock at a lower price if reached. The downside is that the stock could continue falling, causing you to buy a price that is much higher than the current price.
