Bear Put Spread(redirected from Bear put spreads)
Bear Put Spread
In options, a strategy in which one buys put options on a security and then sells the same number of put options on the same security with the same expiration month at a lower strike price. A bear put spread limits both the potential profit and the potential risk, but is most profitable if the security drops moderately in price.
