Hi Mike, at 10:50 you said when you sell a Put you want the shares to go down in price. Actually, when you sell a Put you expect the price to stay the same or rise. Did I get something wrong?
tastytrade (3 months ago)
That section is in reference to a long put spread, which is a bearish trade. The long option will have a higher delta than the short, so you'd want the spread to go fully ITM to reach max profit at expiration, meaning you want the stock price to go down. You are correct in saying that when you SELL a put, you want the stock price to rise or stay the same.

If the POP for the put debit spread is 54% of making 1 cent, then is there only a 46% chance of losing 1 cent? Since you can calculate the P50, then why can't you calculate P25, P75, P100?

Why are* ITM/ITM and OTM/OTM debit spreads bad?

So for example if I buy a vertical spread I pay 100 dollars for the spread my max! Profit is 200 I decide to sell at 200 do I keep the 100 I also invest it making a 300 dollar profit. Or do I lose the 100 I paid for the spread. Please let me know I have called TD and I have got 2 different answers some say yes some say no please help thanks.. 🙏🏽

If you bought a vertical spread for $1.00 and your max profit is $2.00, that would mean you have a 3 point wide spread. If you sell it for $3.00, then yes you would profit $2.00 and get back your $1.00 you paid at entry. However, if you sold it for $2.00 like you said, you would only profit $1.00 as you paid $1.00 on entry and only sold it for $2.00. I hope this helps!

Great video! I like how you were able to set the put debit spread. Are put debit spreads a better vehicle for the set up then call debit spreads? If I have 100 free trades could I profit 25$ on this type of set up repeatedly?
tastytrade (1 year ago)
Thanks for tuning in! Not necessarily - put and call debit spreads are generally 50/50 shots that we use in low IV environments or to get a taste of larger priced underlyings that we can't afford to trade with naked options. It's hard to say if you could be consistently profitable - it would take a lot of directionally correct trades, which is something we try to avoid, as we don't know where the market is going!

Good info... bad advice... how on earth a 50% POP is a "good" trade? it's a coin flip!
Greg Keen (17 days ago)
I know this question is a couple years old at this point, but this type of trade assumes a directional bias. In this case we're assuming the price of the underlying stock will increase in value during the life of the option. This is a bullish bias. If the stock goes up, you win, if it goes down you can lose, but all of these option positions can be adjusted during duration of the trade. If it begins to go against you, you simply buy it back.
