I think selling a put spread in SPY offers a desirable premium with pretty decent odds.

Ford's pre announcement caught a lot of people by surprise, but the reaction looks overdone
Henry Schwartz Analysis: Staples Can Hurt
September 30, 2014 12:28 PM ET
Some option order flow is smart and presents the opportunity to ride the coattails of a well-informed investor to profits. One trade that hit our radar last month was executed in puts on Staples a few days after September expiration.
Jared Woodard Novice Trade: LMT
September 30, 2014 8:52 AM ET
Traders looking to ride the momentum in the short term may want to look at upside LMT calls.
Skip Raschke Intermediate Trade: AXP
September 30, 2014 7:41 AM ET
The trade tactic I prefer for AXP now is the bullishly-biased, out-of-the-money vertical call spread, expiring in January.
Phil McDonnell Intermediate Trade: NS

Nustar's attractive fundamentals set up nicely for a put credit spread.
Mark Sebastian Intermediate Trade: ORCL

Here is the next phase of the Oracle wheel trade following delivery.
Henry Schwartz Intermediate Trade: SPY
September 29, 2014 10:49 AM ET
Increasingly wide market swings have caused option implied volatility to lift recently with the VIX holding over 16 this morning and as a healthy dose of fear returning to the broad index products.

After watching the market's reaction to the Bill Gross/Janus Capital it was once again obvious to me that after 40+ years in this wacky business that I have not seen it all. Given the unique set of circumstances, I'm looking to put on a synthetic put here.
Phil McDonnell Intermediate Trade: NTES

The market has recognized this attractive situation and has kept the stock in an uptrend for much of this past year. There may still be room to run.
