Strangle

An option strategy where both a call and a put are purchased on the same underlying security with the same dates of expiration but and strike prices that are equally out of the money. While this strategy is less expensive than a straddle, the investor will only profit if the underlying security makes a significant price movement, since both contracts are out of the money.
