BULLISH TRADING STRATEGIES

Bullish Trading Strategies
Bullish strategies in options trading are employed when the options trader expects the underlying stock price to move upwards. It is necessary to assess how high the stock price can go and the timeframe in which the rally will occur in order to select the optimum trading strategy. 
Very Bullish
The most bullish of options trading strategies is the simple call buying strategy used by most novice options traders.
Moderately Bullish
In most cases, stocks seldom go up by leaps and bounds. Moderately bullish options trader usually set a target price for the Bull Run and utilizes bull spreads to reduce risk. While maximum profit is capped for these strategies, they usually cost less to employ.
Mildly Bullish
Mildly bullish trading strategies are options strategies that make money as long as the   underlying stock price does not go down on options expiration date. These strategies usually provide a small downside protection as well. Writing out-of-the-money covered calls is one example of such a strategy.
