Diagonal Time Spreads with John Summa, Ph.D.

Time spreads are one of the most flexible basic options strategies a trader has available.  This class of trade involves the use of long and short options with differing expiration months.  Depending upon how they are constructed, you might hear them referred to as calendar spreads, horizontal spreads, or diagonal spreads.
