What is a bear put spread?

BearishLimited ProfitLimited Loss

A bearish vertical spread strategy which has limited risk and reward. It combines a short and a long put which caps the upside, but also the downside.

The goal is for the stock to be below strike A at expiration. This strategy is almost neutral to changes in volatility. Time-decay is helpful while it is profitable, but harmful when it is losing.
