Ep. 1 - The Three Dimensions of Vertical Spreads

options-case-studiesI’m trying something new as a post to this blog.  My friend, head coach, and trading peer, sat down with me and we put together a video training serial on vertical spreads.  We’re going to do an episode every week and post it here on the blog every Tuesday.

This episode introduces what I call the “Half Condor.”  The Half Condor mingles the directional bias of swing traders with some of the fundamental concepts of delta neutral trading.    This combination allows for some very high probability and consistent results.  We begin this series by identifying the different types of vertical spreads, designating the Half Condor from others by liquidity levels and price, time and volatility risk.

So without further hesitation, here is episode 1 of our video trading.  Please, comment with any questions or comments you might have.

To your good trading.

    Heh. All I can say about vertical spreads is: go do 50 of them and get back to me if you still like the play.

    Another great piece. I appreciate your generally delta neutral mindset. It is always so tempting to get unbalanced and go for the big wins, and every time it bites me in the behind. I look forward to more!
