Butterfly vs Straddle
Long Straddle > short butterfly if you expect high volatility because the gains from up/down volatility is less with short butterfly.
So then when is a short butterfly useful? Seems like straddle is always the better option.
Is short butterfly a cheaper option since the premiums can offset some of the costs of the long options?
