A "Strangle" is an option strategy that gives you the potential to profit in a trade no matter which way the stock moves. This is accomplished by purchasing out of the money options on both sides of the stock's price.

Additional Comments:

A strangle is created by selling or buying a call and put option with the same underlying asset and with the same contract month, but with different strike prices.

For example, buying the Exxon 70 call and 60 put would be a strangle.
