Bear spread

From ACT Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Options speculation.

A composite speculative deal in two options, which results in a profit/loss profile similar to a conventional put option, except that the upside potential is capped in return for a reduction in the net premium payable.

A bear spread can be constructed using put options by buying a put with a given strike price, and selling an otherwise identical put with a lower strike price.

It can also be constructed using appropriate call options.
