Bear Call Spread

A type of options strategy used when a decline in price for the underlying asset is predicted.

This occurs by selling call options at a certain strike price while simultaneously buying the same number of calls at a higher strike price.  Using this strategy, an investor’s profit is equal to the difference between the price paid for the long option and the amount collected on the short option.
