Bull spread

• A spread strategy in which an investor buys an out-of-the-money put option, financing it by selling an out-of-the money call option on the same underlying.

• Is an option strategy which is structured to profit from price increases in the underlying market. These spreads can be done for credits or debits. They can be built with calls or puts. When these strategies are done one-for-one, then the purchase of the lower strike and the sale of the higher strike establish the bullish characteristic. Here, the common strategies are vertical, diagonal, and weighted spreads.
