Specifically:

  • What dynamics do you need to think about when trading short spreads?
  • Look at the most at-the-money straddle to get an idea about pricing
  • Example 1: November 17 expriation; 52 days out
    • Selecting strikes
    • What will this cost?
    • What is the max risk? Reward?
  • Example 2: October 6 expiration; 10 days out
    • Selecting strikes
    • What will this cost?
    • What is the max risk? Reward?
  • Which would you choose?
  • How to close out the trade?
  • How to roll the trade?
