Are you speaking of selling straddles or buying? The straddle is my favorite strategy especially during earning season and great for this volatile market. (If buying)

i cant sell options i can only buy any buying strategies that work for someone with only like 1,000 dollars to start with

I always had the impression that straddles were in most cases more profitable. The net credit for strangles is too small, especially for 30-45 days

This study is great stuff.  Previous tastytrade studies of Straddles vs Strangles have also shown higher profits for Straddles but not higher ROC.  Whereas here on the broad-market ETFs, Straddles win on ROC too.  Would be interested to know if TLT performed differently to SPY and IWM.
