How to Make a Profitable Put Call Spread Using an Automated Calculator

  • Written by NewsServices.com

Amateurs who first start trading in the stock market often get baffled by the fluctuating and volatile stock prices. It is necessary to do some homework in understanding the trade market before jumping into buying stocks and shares.

There are various kinds of strategies and options available that will cut down the risk factors involved in trading. These strategies also help in generating maximum profits.

One such option is making a profitable put call spread using an automated calculator. Put call spread involves the simultaneous buying and selling of options of the same type and expiry but at different strike prices.

There are a few ways you can generate a cost-effective pull call spread using an automated spread calculator.

What are Call and Put Spreads?

A call-and-put spread is one of the most widely used options strategies in trading. In a call spread, one call option is purchased, and another call option of lesser value is sold at the same time. It means a trader will buy a call on a strike, and at the same time, sell another call on a higher strike.

A put spread is an options strategy where a put option is purchased while another of a lesser price/value is sold simultaneously. Here, the trader will buy a put on a strike and sell another put on a lower strike. The puts and calls are sold and purchased for the same expiry date.

What Is A Call Spread and a Put Spread Calculator?

A call spread or a put spread can be configured in the best possible way using a call or a put spread calculator. It analyzes and displays the average profit and loss generated in trading in a specific period.

A call or a put spread calculator can generate two types of spreads. It can be either bullish or bearish.

Bullish Call Spread

In a bull call spread, the trader purchases a call option with a lower strike rate. It means the trader assumes that the stock for which the call option is purchased will have a limited increase in its price.

The bull call spread reduces the cost of the call option. Traders can use the bull call spread whenever they can predict the rise in the value of an underlying asset. This strategy is used commonly in a highly fluctuating stock market scenario.

Bearish Call Spread

In a bear call spread, a call option is sold, while an upfront option premium is collected. At the same time, a second call option with the same expiration date but a higher strike price is purchased.

Bear call spreads come with limited-risk factors as traders can calculate and manage losses easily. The strike prices often determine the limits of the losses and profits incurred.

Bullish Put Spread

Traders generally use a bull put spread strategy whenever they can predict a moderate rise in the price of an underlying asset. It involves purchasing a put with a lower strike price and then selling another put at a higher strike price.

A bull put spread can generate maximum profit whenever the underlying asset's value goes higher than the strike price. It should happen at the time of the expiration of the put option. This strategy collects a premium for a put option and also limits the risk involved.

Bear Put Spread

This strategy involves buying a put at a higher strike price and then selling another put at a lower strike price.

This strategy generally works when the stock market is expected to go down in the future, but at a moderate level. This strategy often comes with manageable risks and limited returns.

You may now understand how a put call spread calculator helps generate different spreads that help minimize risks and maximize profits involved in trading.
