Spreads
An option spread (or a vertical spread) is a combination of only
calls or only puts, in which some options are bought and some
others are sold. By buying/selling several call/puts we can create
portfolios useful for many different objectives. A ratio spread is a
combination of buying m calls at one strike price and selling n calls
at a different strike price.
