Spread direction -

by Prad » Wed Mar 24, 2021 4:40 am

I have a query on a strategy. On a Sep 2021 vs Dec 2021 corn spreads. If we say buy this call. Which contract do we buy ? which contract do we sell ? How do we derive at the spread - is it Dec corn prices minus the sep corn prices ?

What is the trade according to this graph. Should we buy the spread or sell the spread ?

Sell spread (seasonal window red means short, green long). So you sell first leg and buy second leg. If you open spread in builder, there is little info box on the right side of menu, which will tell you what to do with each leg
