Course Overview:

In this module we will cover spreads that work under very specific market conditions. We will also examine uncovered options and their margin requirements.

The following spreads are covered in this module:

  • Backspreads, Ratio Spreads and Time Spreads
    Backspreads and ratio spreads, however, are variations of vertical spreads in that they involve buying and selling different numbers of options. A backspread is one in which there are more long ption contracts than short ones; a ratio spread is one in which there are more short contracts than long ones.

  • Call Backspreads and Put Backspreads
    Call Backspreads and Put Backspreads are defined in this section. In addition, this portion includes a discussion comparing alternative strategies and spread selection.

  • Ratio Call Spreads
    A Ratio put spread applies to situations where the forecast for a stock is that it should remain in a relatively narrow trading range, but if it does move the odds are that it will go up. Also discussed is the use of a ratio put spread as a strategy to buy stock.

  • Ratio Put Spreads
    A Ratio put spread applies to situations where the forecast for a stock is that it should remain in a relatively narrow trading range, but if it does move the odds are that it will go up. Also discussed is the use of a ratio put spread as a strategy to buy stock.

  • Time Spreads
    Time spreads involve the purchase and sale of equal numbers of option contracts and is designed to take advantage of the accelerated time decay of at-the-money options. Also discussed is the use of time spreads as a directional strategy.
