Bull Spreads

A bull spread option strategy is used by the option trader who is looking to profit from an expected rise in the price of the underlying security.

Vertical Bull Spreads

The vertical bull spread is a vertical spread in which options with a lower striking price are purchased and options with a higher striking price sold. Depending on whether puts or calls are used, the vertical bull spread can be established with a credit or a debit.

Bull Put Credit Spread

A vertical bull spread can be established for a credit if put options are used. The strategy is also known as the bull put spread.

Bull Call Debit Spread

A vertical bull spread can be established for a debit if call options are used. The strategy is also known as the bull call spread.

Horizontal & Diagonal Bull Spreads

The bull calendar spread and the diagonal bull spread are both time spread strategies used by option traders who believe that the price of the underlying security will remain stable in the near term but will eventually rise in the long term.
