In derivatives trading, a straddle is a popular trading strategy that involves buying both a call option and a put option on the same underlying asset, at the same strike price, and with the same expiration date.

By purchasing both a call option and a put option, the trader is betting that the underlying asset will experience significant price volatility, but is uncertain about the direction of the price movement.
