    I ask alot of questions here regarding stock/options purchases and I want to thank everyone who has answered my questions.
    So my latest thought is buying short-term puts on caterpillar. Cat is one of the largest manufacturers in the US and exports a large portion of the products oversees. My thought is due to dollar appreciation exports are more expensive and a company who relies as heavily on exports as CAT will be significantly effected in addition to the current turmoil in the market. So would 3 month or less puts be a good choice?
