Ratio Spreads

Ratio spreads are an evolution of the bull call or bear put spread. They combine long purchased options with multiple short options.

Additional Comments:

Ratio spreads bring an additional short option premium to purchased options to reduce the premium outlay, protect against time value decay, and insulate long options from significant reductions in implied volatility.
