A time spread is a short-term, market-neutral strategy that offers potentially high percentage profits with small dollar risk. In a diagonal spread an options trader simultaneously enters into a long and a short position in two options of the same type, but with different strike prices and expiration dates. When properly combined with other strategies, time and diagonal spreads are unbeatable tools for balancing risk and reward.
