Options Trading Basics: Strategies Across Multiple Expirations | Closing the Gap
Rather than selling multiple options contracts in a single expiration cycle, traders can utilize multiple expirations in order to reduce their risk while maintaining their directional assumption.

Today, tastytrade looks at both strategies and assesses their probability of profit!
