We are back in the saddle discussing options strategies. With the VIX in the low- to mid-teens, that makes for an interesting time to look at volatility. We are going to look at a long call spread, possibly with a roll. You can find more in The Options Playbook, which is always available on OptionsPlaybook.com, or on the Amazon Kindle edition.

Specifically:

  • Indexes and volatility
  • Looking to do this trade for positive theta
  • Selecting expriations
  • What's a time bomb butterfly?
  • Setting up the trade
  • Selecting strikes
  • What do we want to happen?
  • What is the max risk? Reward?
  • To adjust or not to adjust?
