3 Hedging Strategies strike ????2 , ????1 ≤ ????2 on the same underlying asset ???????? and having the same expiry time ???? (???? > ????). Show that ????(???????? , ????; ????1 , ???? ) ≥ ????(???????? , ????; ????2 , ???? ), ????1 ≤ ????2 and draw the payoff and profit diagrams of a bull call spread. Discuss under what conditions an investor should invest in such a hedging strategy. Solution: We first assume ????(???????? , ????; ????1 , ???? ) < ????(???????? , ????; ????2 , ???? ) and we set up a portfolio Π???? = ????(???????? , ????; ????1 , ???? ) − ????(???????? , ????; ????2 , ???? ) < 0.
