These concepts are meant to build on your existing knowledge of options trading for a more well-rounded technical knowledge. Go from simply trading to understanding why options behave the way they do through careful research and studying. Many advanced strategies then use this advantage in order to exploit additional opportunities.
An options trade will always boil down to either a call or a put option. However, some strategies are known to be far more complex than others. At their base, options trades involve two options in the trade, and are appropriately known as “two-legged” trades. Adding more “legs” or options are what brings simple trades into advanced territory. Your partnered broker will help you to determine when it is appropriate to implement these advanced strategies and advise you on when to use when. These advanced concepts, strategies, and techniques offer unique opportunities an average broker would not see on the surface through a gained insight and research. Some of the strategies that will become available to you:
The Bull Call Spread - The bull call spread, as the name would suggest, involves call options, and pairing a lower-strike call with a higher-strike call. Or a long or short call respectively. Essentially, the Bull Call Spread relies on the underlying contract/futures rising - so close market analysis is critical.
The Bear Put Spread - The bear put spread can be seen as a similar strategy to the Bull Call Spread using puts. Conversely, this strategy relies on the underlying futures contract declining in value, but not lower to the strike price.
The Long Straddle - The long straddle combines the two, and pairs a call and a put together at the same expiration and strike price. This is ideal for situations where an advanced trader is unsure if their underlying future will rise or fall, but can confidently predict that it will move in one direction.
The Long Strangle - Unlike a long straddle that pairs out-of-the-money options, a long strangle uses at-the-money options. This may be the cheaper strategy to set up in the short term, but relies on much greater movement than a long straddle to be beneficial.
