Bull Call Ladder

The bull call spread is expanded by a bull call ladder, which now also contains a short call.


Long Call Ladder


involves purchasing call options at three different strike prices. This strategy is designed to profit from a rise in the underlying stock price. The maximum profit potential is increased, but limitless danger is also introduced. Although the strategy’s name suggests otherwise, it is actually neutral to slightly optimistic because it has uncapped losses in the event of a significant upward movement.

The trader purchases a call option with a low strike price and also purchases a call option with a higher strike price, while selling a call option with an even higher strike price (this is known as a “call spread”). The trader is betting that the underlying stock price will rise, and profits from the strategy if the stock price goes up.
