    Is there a name for this type of spread?


    Bought 1 Feb 05 326 Call at 5.59
    Sold 1 Feb 05 326 Put at 6.02
    Sold 1 Feb 05 328 Call at 4.51
    Bought 1 Feb 05 324 Put at 5.21

    I entered this position on Jan. 22, for a net debit of .27, when the stock was trading around 326.15.

    I exited the position this morning for a net credit of 1.92, with the stock at around 330.

    Normally I would have watched it throughout the day and let the position dissolve on its own. The puts would have expired worthless and the calls would have gone through auto exercise to collect the max profit. But I had to be away from my computer for the most of the day, and I reaaaaally did not want to fool around with my broker's mobile app, because I have never actually used it to trade LOL So I got out around 9:35 AM...

    Pretty sure that's the traditional triple lindy.

    I've never heard that term before LOL Google says it is a reference to a Rodney Dangerfield film...

    Pretty sure a bull credit put spread paired with a debit bull call spread. Not sure you can give it a name other than "custom" - Something clever maybe you could give it a name and founding rights. I like bull swing spread. IDK paying for the debit spread by selling a credit spread. Maybe call it a Dodo Condor. Something creative.

    That is certainly one way of looking at it.

    The other way to see it is that it is synthetic long stock with a collar.

    You were aynthetically short the 28-24 put spread..or long the 24- 28 call spread

    Long stock with a collar also holds

    I think it is call risk reversal.

    Looks like 2 bull spreads. Call and put spreads are interchangeable so this is equivalent two to Call spreads. Since one of the strikes falls in between, you ended up with just a single, wide bull spread 324/328.
    (I didn’t look at performance graph to confirm)
    BlueWaterSailor and taowave like this.
