Hello all, I'm very bearish on the S&P 500 and expect it to drop back down to the 2300 level again within (say) 12 months. I'm looking for help/advice on how to best structure this trade by selling emini S&P contracts but also buying options on the S&P eminis to hedge the position (at say 50 point intervals upwards up to say 3300) in case the market goes up.

any help is greatly appreciated, thank you!

your talking about an advanced call spreed . this is not the place to find that information . in general the cost of the calls are to much to execute that idea when the ATR is this high.
