Option Spread Trading Strategies Explained

What are Option Spreads?

An option spread is a type of complex options trade.

When option spread trading in the stock market, a trader can utilize one of two types of options trading strategies. They can either buy or sell an outright option or make a complex option trade.

An outright trade is a purchase or sale of an option on its own. It’s much more simple than a complex trade, which is why most options traders deal in outrights. A complex trade strategy involves option spreads.

Although option spread trades are more complex than outright trades, and they only comprise a small amount of trades in the options market, these types of trades can be extremely lucrative while reducing risk of loss.

However, trading option spreads requires knowledge of complex strategy.

What are the Benefits of Option Spreads?

An outright trade involves a single contract in a single month, with a single expiration date.

It’s easy to see how option spreads can become very confusing; even to experienced traders.

However, for all of the complexity of option spreads, there is a large upside to using this strategy to trade. Option spreads provide flexibility and power. For the same amount of risk as an outright option trade, an option spread can statistically increase a chance of profit.

Is There Risk Involved in Trading Option Spreads?

The risk of option spreads should be calculated using ‘The Greeks’. The Greeks are a set of terms used to calculate different forms of risk: delta, gamma, vega, and theta. These terms should be used to help calculate the risk of option trading strategies.

Delta and gamma measure the movement of stock prices. Delta is represented as either long or short. Vega measures the volatility of the stock. Vega is also represented as either long or short. Theta measures time decay. Theta is represented as either positive or negative.

What are the Different Option Spread Trading Strategies?

There are multiple option spread strategies. Each strategy is designed for different markets (bullish, bearish, or neutral) by using different methods. Option spread strategies include calendar spreads, horizontal, vertical and diagonal spreads, and credit and debit spreads.

Learn about Option SpreadsOption spread strategies vary in their use of option contracts; known as legs. Option spreads typically have two legs, but they can have more. Option spread legs correspond with time variations of calls and puts; either long or short strikes.

Each type of option spread is unique in its risk and ROI (return on investment) potential. They all require intricate strategy in order to minimize risk and maximize profit potential.

Calendar Spread Option Strategy

The calendar spread is designed to capitalize on time decay. All options involved in a calendar spread will be identical in their underlying stock and have the option to have the same strike price. However, they will all have different expiration dates.

Typically, long calendar spreads provide lower risk trading opportunities. Calendar spreads decline in value if their underlying stock either greatly appreciates or greatly depreciates.

Horizontal Spread Option Strategy

A horizontal spread is a type of calendar spread because it is based upon the value of time decay. Its spread will hold the same strikes but its legs will buy and sell at different times and across different time periods. Potential for profit and risk of loss is different for a horizontal spread versus a vertical spread.

Vertical Spread Option Strategy

A vertical spread involves a spread of options that are bought and sold at the same time. All of the options in the spread are the same type and have the same expiration date. However, they all have different strike prices.

A vertical call spread is typically associated with lesser risk. The amount of profit gained by a vertical option spread is determined by how great the difference is between the option premiums of the two positions taken.

Diagonal Spread Option Strategy

A diagonal spread is a combination of a horizontal spread and a vertical spread. The horizontal aspect of the diagonal spread has to do with the differentiation in expiration dates. The vertical spread aspect has to do with the differentiation in strike prices. This means a diagonal option spread has two of the same type of options which both take a long and short position, but they have different strike prices and different expiration dates.

Credit Spread Option Strategy

A credit spread is also known as a credit risk option. The strategy taken involves buying the same type of underlying stock or security. However, they are bought at different strike prices; one option is sold high and one option bought low. Profiting from a credit spread is dependent upon whether the spread narrows.

There are multiple types of credit spreads. Popular strategic credit spread options involve short butterflies, short condors, iron condors and iron butterflies.

Debit Spread Option Strategy

A debit spread involves two options with the same underlying security and same strike prices; but with different market prices. One option is sold low and one option is bought high. Profiting from the trade is dependent upon whether the spread widens. A debit spread always involves an initial loss. However, the trader is betting on the fact that the highly priced purchased option will continue to rise in price.
