D ) profit if the market drops

See Answer

4)

Which of the following strategies has unlimited loss potential?

A ) long stock/short call
B ) long stock/long put
C ) short stock/long call
D ) short stock/short put

See Answer

Answer: The Best Answer is D

Feedback: With a long stock position, the maximum loss is the value of the stock. With a short stock position, the potential loss is unlimited. If a long call is purchased against a short stock position, the upside loss is limited. If a short put is sold against a short stock position the upside loss is still unlimited since in a rising market the short put will expire "out the money." The short stock position must be covered by purchasing the stock at the higher market price - and the price can rise an infinite amount.


5)

Which position is profitable in a rising market?

A ) bear put spread
B ) bull call spread
C ) short straddle
D ) short naked call

See Answer

Answer: The Best Answer is B

Feedback: A bull call spread is profitable in a rising market. A bear put spread is profitable in a falling market, as is a short naked call. A short straddle is profitable in a flat market.
