This trade will only profit or lose if the stock moves below Leg 1 or above Leg 2 rather than between the strikes at expiration. As it gets closer to expiration, it acts more like a synthetic future.
Long call & put combo, Call & put spread.
Involves buying a call option and a put option on the same underlying asset, with both options having the same expiration date but different strike prices. This strategy allows the trader to profit from either an increase or a decrease in the price of the underlying asset, as the long call option will increase in value if the price of the underlying asset rises, while the long put option will increase in value if the price of the underlying asset falls. The trader’s potential profit is limited to the difference between the strike prices of the two options, minus any premiums paid and commissions or fees associated with the trade.
