  1. Do you have heuristics about optimal deltas (or other considerations) for placing protective puts? Do you optimize for profit or simply insurance? Thanks!

    1. Hey Laura, I find it to be pretty situational. But I usually go somewhat OTM, so maybe a 37 – 45 delta. And I think of it as insurance, but will “cash in” on it by taking a profit on the puts, as opposed to letting it go to expiration and letting the put get exercised.
