Widening Spreads vs Multiplying Contracts

Trade Managers

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.

Mike & Nick explain why they prefer to widen spreads rather than multiply contracts in defined risk credit spreads.

When you consider the probability of reaching max loss, and how it's so much higher with narrow spreads, widening starts to make more sense.

Wider spreads are also much more sensitive to theta, vega and delta, which is a good thing when we're selling premium and want to benefit from those things.

Tune in for a great discussion!
