The vast majority of trades are custom put spreads that are closely related to diagonal put spreads in order to define risk while leveraging a minimal amount of capital in order to maximize return on investment (ROI). For any given trade I target roughly 5-15% ROI at a delta of ~0.15 or ~85% probability of winning the trade at expiration. I always strive to trade across a wide array of tickers to maximize sector diversity and across uncorrelated tickers while maximizing the number of trades.
