Call Broken Wing Butterfly

A call broken-wing butterfly spread is an advanced bearish option strategy with the goal of having no downside risk. Call broken-wing butterflies consist of buying one in-the-money long call, selling two out-of-the-money short calls, and buying one out-of-the-money long call above the short calls.

A call BWB spread is an advanced strategy where you take a traditional butterfly spread above the market and skip 1 strike price to create an unbalanced spread. These strategies are typically done for a net credit with the goal of having no risk to the downside. Skipping a strike allows you do to this because you buy a further OTM call option at a cheaper price, which reduces the overall cost of the strategy.
