Guidelines for Option Strategies for use with OSCC charts
With examples for "Normalized "Max Premium"" charts!
Listed below are various option strategies. We have grouped them in various categories as to whether they are net debit or credit investments. With sub headings as to whether you and your broker agree to be bullish or bearish on the future. These are only suggestions as strategies to consider. Your broker may have other suggestions. Only your broker can advise you as to the best one to choose.
We do not cover all option strategies here, only the basic ones to educate users on how to apply our charts to basic strategies. The spreads shown are balanced. That is, they have an equal number of long and short positions. Ratio strategies are simply one of the below spreads with extra long or short options. Some of these strategies in combination with the future are referred to as covered strategies. Butterflies are combinations of the below spreads and must be explained by a broker.
Liquidity and Risk
It is also important to how much you can expect the "Max Premium" and the Future to change.
Vertical Spread - This is where the options are all in
the same contract month.
Bullish on the future
**** Credit transactions should only be done with the
advise of a qualified broker!****
We also have a new
"chart explanation page" to help explain
what these charts show and how to use them.
