If you trading options was complicated, watch this!
A SHORT STRANGLE is: When you sell an out-of-the-money CALL and PUT at the same time, collecting a credit to your account. If the underlying (futures contract) expires anywhere between the PUT strike and the CALL strike, you make money. This trading method is specifically for small and medium personal investors trading using on-line discount brokers.
The marvel of this strategy is that you do NOT have to try and guess the WHERE and WHEN prices will go. You make money merely by picking a wide range where prices are likely NOT to go, then let the natural time-decay of the options do the work. In this case, the APR18 Gold futures will need to be between the range of $1200 and $1500 at option expiration in 47 days.
