Bull Call Spread

This is an options strategy used when investors expect a moderate rise in the price of the underlying asset and is most often a vertical spread.

Investors purchase call options at a certain strike price while also selling the equivalent number of calls of the same asset and expiration date but at a higher strike price. Investors hope to profit with this strategy by the difference between strike prices of the long and short options, less the net cost of options.
