Calendar Put Spread

  • Useful when IV is currently low but is expected to go higher in future
  • Also useful if the stock is expected to be lower in the longer term
  • Sell a put for the current month, buy a put for the later month
  • Example, Sell 50 strike November put, buy 50 strike December put
  • It will be a debit spread, because farther out put is more expensive
  • If the IV picks up by Dec, profit.
