Learn the vertical spread options strategies in this comprehensive 11-part video series!
In this video, we start with a basic introduction to vertical spreads.
A vertical spread is an options strategy that consists of one long option and one short option of the same time and in the same expiration cycle.
For example, buying a call option with a strike price of $100 and selling another call option with a strike price of $110 (same expiration cycle) would create a 100/110 bull call spread.
There are four vertical spread strategies. Two of them are considered debit spreads and two of them are considered credit spreads:
1. Bull Call Spread (call debit spread)
2. Bear Call Spread (call credit spread)
3. Bull Put Spread (put credit spread)
4. Bear Put Spread (put debit spread)
