Alex Mendoza
Presented by: Alex Mendoza, options trader, instructor
Learn perhaps the most powerful option strategy implemented by elite floor traders on the Chicago Board Options Exchange - the Broken Wing Butterfly, or BWB. This esoteric technique strategically meshes the benefits of a butterfly with those of a vertical spread, while protecting each to reduce the risk exposure of both. How many times have you purchased a butterfly spread, only to watch your position expire worthless? The BWB works around this conundrum of risk versus reward so that most spreads are purchased for a zero debit. Alex Mendoza will let you in on the inner workings of the spread: how to place the trade for a zero debit, how the whole trade can equal more than the sum of its pieces, and why this is likely the fastest growing and most sought out option trade today.

Spreads can be incredibly attractive option investments.Whether we consider verticals, calendars, straddles or ratio backspreads, fantastic money-making opportunities exist every day in the world of spreads.Yet, there is one problem that magnifies itself in spread orders more so than in individual call and put orders: fills.
Why is it so difficult to get filled on spreads?The complaints often sound like a broken record.
