Trading In Bear Call Spread Options Strategy (Using Excel)

The options trader uses the bear call spread options strategy when having moderately bearish expectations on the market or stock. Under this strategy, the trader buys and sells the same asset’s options with the same expiry date but with different strike prices. This strategy involves limited profit and limited risk.Bear call spread options strategy

Features of Bear call spread options strategy

  • One long call and One short call

A Bear call spread options strategy consists of one OTM call and one ITM call option. The options trader goes long on the OTM option with a higher strike price and goes short on the ITM options with a lower strike price.

For example, currently, a stock is trading at $10. If the options trader uses a bear call spread options strategy, the trader will buy one call option at $13 and sell one call option at $7.

  • Limited risk and limited profit strategy

The options trader will pay a premium for buying the OTM call option and receive a premium for selling the ITM call option. As the premium received on the selling the ITM call option is higher, the trader is already in profit at the beginning of the trade.

In case of a rise in market price, the trader’s loss is capped to the difference between the two strike prices minus the call options’ net premium.

Similarly, in case of a fall in market price, the trader keeps the net premium received, which is also the maximum profit.

Let us understand this strategy better with the help of a detailed example.

The current share price of Apple is trading at $118. 1 Lot size is equivalent to 100 shares. To use the bear call spread options strategy, the options trader will:

  • Buy 1 OTM Call Option at $123 (Premium = $2)
  • Sell 1 ITM Call Option at $113 (Premium = $4)

Note: The premium taken above is on a hypothetical basis.

  1. Premium Paid = $2* 100 = $200
  2. Premium Received = $4*100 = 400

Net Premium Received = $400 – $200 = $200

Now, let us consider three different scenarios to better understand the risk-reward ratio in this strategy: –

Scenario 1: Stock price remains unchanged at $118 (above short call)

The OTM buy call option of $123 will not be exercised by the options trader as he will get a better price in the spot market. The buyer of call option would exercise his rights, as he can buy the share at a cheaper rate than the market.

Scenario 2: Stock price goes down to $ 111 (below short call)

Both the options would expire worthless as the traders would get better prices from the open market.

Scenario 3: Stock price increases to $ 125 (above the long call)

As the strike price is lower than the current market price, both parties would exercise their options.

Maximum Profit/Loss in all the scenarios is as given below:

Scenario Spot Price on Expiry Maximum Profit/Loss
1 $118 $200 – $500 = – $300
2 $111 $200
3 $ 125 $200 + $200 – $1200 = – $800

Note: This is a hypothetical example. The maximum profit/loss may vary depending on the premium involved.

Maximum Profit, Loss, and Breakeven in Bear call spread options strategy

The net premium received by the investor is his maximum profit under this strategy. The investor would earn a profit when the stock remains equal to or less than the short call option strike price.  Therefore, maximum profit is realized in the above case at any price below or equal to $113.

Breakeven would be achieved in the above example at $115, a price slightly above the short call.

The maximum loss of trader is capped to the upper strike price minus the lower strike price minus the net premium. In the above example, Maximum Loss = ($113-$123) *100 – $200 = $800.
