SPY Victory Spread Feb-183Calls/Apr-200Calls

Today I entered a Victory Spread, which is a nicer name for a Ratio Diagonal.

Trade Details:
Sell 2 February 183 Call @8.36
Buy 8 April 200 Call @2.14

Net: $40 debit (or 0.20 per 1:4 Victory Spread)

I wanted to add another speculative bullish play, but I didn't want to do it at the expense of losing more money should the market keep relentlessly falling. So, with this position there is a chance to make money on both up and downside moves, although much more on the way up of course.

Risk Profile picture:

Small max risk of around $180, or 0.18% on a 100K portfolio.
The profile picture of this position changes over time, which makes it a little bit more challenging to manage. We'll see how it unfolds.
