I have successfully sold credit spreads for some time and you make good money. Others are better than I am, but you can make a good 8-10% a month on selling credit spreads. Not bad and easy to do. But it is hard to do right now since the VIX is so low. There just isn't a lot of premium in the short dated options right now. In fact I'm studying the volatility crush that happens after expiration and seeing that may be the best bet for options selling. Wait fo the current months options to elevate in premium (usually a week before current month expiration), sell the next month and the following week when the volatility comes after the current months expiration, you can take advantage of the volatility being taken out of the overpriced options.

On the the other hand, if you can find stocks at an imbalance were the OI 'pain' number is far off from the stock in price, buying premium can be explosive. I have not figured out how to do this just yet, but I have seen it happen. I need a screen that shows max pain at x and current stock price at y and the differential.
