Slide 13 13 Bull spread Both options have the same expiration date Hoping that the stock price will be up Limit both the upside profit potential and the downside risk i.e. limiting both sides Three types of bull spreads can be distinguished 1. both calls are initially out of the money 2. one call is initially in the money ; the other call is initially out of the money 3. both calls are initially in the money Slide 14 14 Bull Spread Using Calls Buy a call with a lower strike price and sell a call with a higher strike price Profit STST K1K1 +C K2K2 -C Slide 15 15 Payoff from a bull spread created using calls Stock price range Payoff from long call option Payoff from short call option Total payoff S T K 2 S T - K 1 -(S T K 2 )K 2 - K 1 K 1 < S T < K 2 S T - K 1 0 S T K 1 000 Slide 16 16 Example An investor buys for $3 a call with a strike price of $30 and sells for $1 a call with a strike price of $35 The profit is therefore as follows: Stock price rangeProfit S T 30 -2-2 30 < S T < 35S T 32 S T 35 3 Slide 17 17 Bull Spread Using Puts Buy a put with a lower strike price and sell a put with a higher strike price Profit STST K1K1 +P K2K2 -P Slide 18 18 Bear Spreads Both options have the same expiration date Hoping that the stock price will decline Limit both the upside profit potential and the downside risk Slide 19 19 Bear Spread Using Puts Sell a put with a lower strike price and buy a put with a higher strike price Profit STST K1K1 -P K2K2 +P Slide 20 20 Payoff from a bear spread created using puts Stock price range Payoff from long put option Payoff from short put option Total payoff S T K 2 000 K 1 < S T < K 2 K 2 - S T 0 S T K 1 K 2 - S T -(K 1 S T )K 2 - K 1 Slide 21 21 Example An investor buys for $3 a put with a strike price of $35 and sells for $1 a put with a strike price of $30 The profit is therefore as follows: Stock price rangeProfit S T 30 3 30 < S T < 3533 - S T S T 35 -2 Slide 22 22 Bear Spread Using Calls Sell a call with a lower strike price and buy a call with a higher strike price Profit STST K2K2 +c K1K1 -c Slide 23 23 Box Spread A combination of a bull call spread with strike prices k 1 and k 2 and a bear put spread with the same two strike prices If all options are European a box spread is worth the present value of the difference between the strike prices( (K 2 - K 1 )e -rT ) ; If they are American this is not necessarily so. Slide 24 24 Box Spread Slide 25 25 Box Spread If the market price of the box spread is too low(high),it is profitable to buy(sell) the box,called long box or short box Commissions are important to be considered when implementing this strategy coz the small profit may be easily offset by commissions Alligator spread Slide 26 26 Butterfly Spread Involves positions in options with three different strike prices K 1 : a relatively low strike price K 3 : a relatively high strike price K 2 : halfway between K1 and K3, close to the current stock price Large stock price moves are unlikely Slide 27 27 Butterfly Spread Using Calls Buy a call option with a relatively low K 1, buy a call option with a relatively high K 3, and sell two call options with K 2 Profit STST K1K1 +C K3K3 K2K2 -C Slide 28 28 Payoff from a butterfly spread Stock price range Payoff from first long call Payoff from second long call Payoff from short calls Total payoff S T < K 1 0000 K 1 < S T < K 2 S T - K 1 00 K 2 < S T < K 3 S T - K 1 0 -2(S T K 2 ) K 3 - S T S T > K 3 S T - K 1 S T - K 3 -2(S T K 2 ) 0 Slide 29 29 Example The stock price is $61.An investor buys for $10 a call with a strike price of $55,$5 a call with a strike price of $65 and sells for $7 two puts with a strike price of $60 The profit is therefore as follows: Stock price rangeProfit S T < 55 55 < S T < 60S T - K 1 -1 60 < S T < 65K 3 - S T -1 S T > 65 Slide 30 30 Butterfly Spread Using Puts Buy a put option with a relatively low K 1, buy a put option with a relatively high K 3, and sell two put options with K 2 Profit STST K1K1 +P K3K3 K2K2 -P Slide 31 31 Calendar Spread The options have the same strike price and different expiration dates Neutral calendar spread : A strike price close to the current stock price is chosen Bullish calendar spread : Involves a higher strike price Bearish calendar spread : Involves a lower strike price Reverse calendar spread : Buys a short-maturity option and sells a long-maturity option Slide 32 32 Calendar Spread Using Calls Buy a longer-maturity call option and Sell a call option with the same strike price Profit STST K +C -C Slide 33 33 Calendar Spread Using Puts Buy a longer-maturity put option and Sell a put option with the same strike price Profit STST K +P -P Slide 34 34 Brief Summary Bull and Bear spreads: different strike prices and the same expiration date Calendar spreads: the same strike price and different expiration date Slide 35 35 Diagonal Spread Both the expiration date and the strike price of the calls are different Increases the range of profit patterns that are possible Slide 36 36 Diagonal Bull Spread Slide 37 37 Diagonal Bear Spread Slide 38 38 Combinations Taking a position in both calls and puts on the same stock Straddle () Strips () Straps () Strangles () Slide 39 39 Straddle Bottom straddle (straddle purchase) : Buying a call and put with the same strike price and expiration date ; expecting a large move in a stock price but does not know in which direction the move will be Top straddle (straddle write) : Selling a call and put with the same strike price and expiration date ; large stock price moves are unlikely Slide 40 40 Bottom straddle Profit STST K +C +P Slide 41 41 Payoff from a bottom straddle Stock price range Payoff from long call Payoff from long put Total payoff S T K0K - S T S T > KS T - K0 Slide 42 42 Strip & Strap Strip : Buy one call and two puts with the same strike price and expiration date ; Considers a decrease in the stock price to be a more likely than an increase Strap : Buy two calls and one put with the same strike price and expiration date ; Considers a increase in the stock price to be a more likely than an decrease Slide 43 43 Strip & Strap callput Strip12 Strap21 Slide 44 44 Strip & Strap Profit KSTST KSTST StripStrap Slide 45 45 Strangle Bottom vertical combination : Buy a put and a call with the same expiration date and different strike prices Top vertical combination : Sell a put and a call with the same expiration date and different strike prices The stock price has to move farther in a strangle than in a straddle for the investor to make a profit ; The downside risk is less than a straddle Slide 46 46 Bottom vertical combination K1K1 K2K2 Profit STST +C +P Slide 47 47 K1K1 K2K2 Profit STST +C +P Profit STST K +C +P The stock price has to move farther in a strangle than in a straddle for the investor to make a profit ; The downside risk is less than a straddle Strangle Straddle Slide 48 48 Payoff from a bottom vertical combination Stock price range Payoff from long call Payoff from long put Total payoff S T K 1 0K 1 - S T K 1 < S T < K 2 000 S T K 2 S T - K 2 0 Slide 49 49 Other Payoffs All payoff functions (at time T) can be found: if Euro options can expire (at time T) with every single possible strike price Profit STST K1K1 K2K2 K3K3
