Options Bootcamp #29:  Diagonals


Basic Training:  Trading Diagonals

  • What is a diagonal?
  • Why would you put it on?
  • What adjustments need to be made?
  • How is it performed?
  • How does it differ from a typical horizontal calendar spread?
  • Why would you use a calendar vs. a horizontal spread?
  • How do the greeks differ?
  • How do you choose the strikes?

Mail Call: Fall in, recruits!

  • Question from Richard D:  I think a whole boot camp show on skew could be very helpful! Thanks!
  • Question from Hawkeye6: Love the pair of calendar spread shows. Can you make it a hat trick and have a show on double diagonals and double calendars? I am especially interested in hearing about selection criteria — what makes a good candidate, criteria for strike selection, when to pick DD/DC vs. Condor/Iron Condor, etc.
