shortPutButterfly {butterflyOptions} | R Documentation |
This strategy consists of a short position in an OTM (out of the money) put option with a strike price $X1L, a long position in two ATM ( at the money) put options with a strike price $X, and a short position in an ITM (in the money) put option with a strike price $X3H. The strikes are equidistant: $X3H minus $X equals to $X minus $X1L (Kakushadze & Serur, 2018).
