To create a calendar spread, you want to buy September $50 call and sell August $50 call. The September call will COST you $6 and August call will give you $4. The $2 spread is the total cost of the strategy. For this strategy to work, you will want August call to lose its VALUE to faster than September call.
In July the options might look like this. August call will worth $1 and September call will worth $4. Your spread will will increase to $3. You profit will sees the spread difference which is $1. In order to work the underlying stock price must remain stable. Any drop or rise will affect the Time VALUE and option price.

Forex options calculate with ' griegos'. One explicaciÃ ³ n bÃsica of these Greek " him ayudarÃto understand cÃ ³ mo and by quÃ© moves the options of the currency and they behave of a certain way. One opciÃ ³ n is a derivative and cÃ ³ mo its value is derived is of one fÃ ³ rmula that combines these Greek together ones. The Greeks are cÃ ³ mo these options respond to diverse factors such as the movement of prices, time of decay, the volatileness and the rates of interÃ©s. There are 5 Greeks implied and that we shared one by one to travÃ©s of them. Delta: The speed of increase of price of opciÃ ³ n or the pÃ©rdida one against the gain or pÃ©rdida of " madre" or the price of the underlying assets is known like the Delta. The Delta is a figure that shows quÃ© rÃ so to usI request or slow moverÃopciÃ ³ n in relaciÃ ³ n to his " madre" or underlying assets. A delta of 1 means that the price of opciÃ ³ n estÃmoving at the same speed and direcciÃ ³ n that " madre" or underlying assets. A -1 delta means that the price of opciÃ ³ n estÃmoving in direcciÃ ³ n opposed for each point of Â “madreÂ” or movements of the underlying assets. The one probability opciÃ ³ n that expires in expresses tambiÃ©n to money-self in the Delta. One opciÃ ³ n of purchase in the money has a Delta of 0. 5; i. e. , 50%, which means a probability of 50% of which they win in the money. Deep in the call tendrÃa price of near Delta 1, or 100%, which means an opportunity the 100% of victory in the money almost. Very outside money-opciÃ ³ n of purchase tendrÃa Delta of near zero, which means an almost null possibility that it expires in the money.
In the Ãºltimo artÃculo, must learn about " delta". We follow. Gamma: Gamma drift of Delta is the probability of a change in the Delta. TambiÃ©n informs beforehand if the Delta podrÃa to be changing. Gammas is positive as much for the purchase and sale. When the options are lost in the money of deep of the money of the Gammas serÃnear zero as the probability of a change in the Delta is very low. In the same way in the price of exercise it is probable that to mÃs high and Gamma. Theta: Time of decay ³ n in options like Theta is reflected in posiciÃ. Options of purchase are Theta negatives, which means that each dÃa that does not sell that opciÃ ³ n, the value of time estÃdiminishing due to descomposiciÃ ³ n of the time. In this case, time of decay is reason why ³ n is worse for the buyer of opciÃ. When you sell options, Theta is positive, which means that the decay moment is good for the salesman of opciÃ ³ n. Fertile valley: ÂCÃ ³ mo affects to the volatileness of valoraciÃ ³ n of options is reflected in the one of Fertile valley. In other words, its sensitivity to volatileness. Options tend to have increases of prices when the underlying assets of volatileness are increased. In this case, volatileness is good for the bad buyer of one opciÃ ³ n and for the one salesman opciÃ ³ n. Fertile valley is positive for opciÃ ³ n of length and negative for opciÃ short ³ n. Rho: Rho is cÃ ³ mo the rates of interÃ©s affect the price of opciÃ ³ n. When the rates of interÃ©s are high and is good for the position, Rho serÃpositive. If the rates of interÃ©s are high, but bad for posiciÃ ³ n in options, Rho serÃnegative.
