Option Strategy: [private_monthly]bull put spread[/private_monthly]

Reasoning: Going to take advantage of the increased volatility, due to the concerns over Greece, and open up a [private_monthly]bull put spread[/private_monthly] here on SPX for August option expiration. If the market returns to its recent highs, I'll look to add a[private_monthly]bear call spread, and thus turn the trade to an iron condor[/private_monthly]. The Greeks going into this trade are: 0.8 delta, 1.3 theta, and -8.4 vega.
