Removed Thread
I'm just dropping a note here to let you know that I have just removed a thread. The title " lousy b******s", contained profanity which is against TMF guidelines. Thanks, Kim TMF TippyK

I thought the alternate spelling was OK. However, there was one post where someone accused someone else of being on Crack, or something like that, which I problem posted, as there is no call for that. My apologies to anyone who didn't have innapropiate posts on that thread and got pulled anyway.

Low risk strategy "Credit spreads". These are what I called "Reverse" Bull or Bear Spreads previously.
My concern with all spreads and straddles is the transaction costs. You really need to keep your eye on the ball for commissions and bid ask spreads when you are doing multiple trades.
