We don't know everything about the markets.  We're just devoted to learners.  Taken from those smarter than ourselves, here's how we define Strangle.

An options strategy involving holding both a call and a put option with the same expiration date of the same underlying asset (similar to a straddle) but with different strike prices (differentiating it from a straddle).  This is a good strategy if the trader thinks the underlying security will experience large price movement in the near future but is unsure of the movement direction.  A strangle is mainly profitable if the asset does sharply swing in price.
