A butterfly spread is synthesized by going long the put with strike $55, shorting two puts with strike $60 and going long the put with strike $65. If at maturity the price of the stock is such that , then the payoff of the butterfly is given by:

A) S - 56

B) 64 - S

b. | Premium received for shorting 2 puts @ 60 (2*5) | 10 | 10 | 10 |

c. | Premium paid for long put @ 65 | -8 | -8 | -8 |

d. | Value for long put @ 55 on expiry | 0 | 0 | 0 |

e. | Value for shorting 2 puts @ 60 on expiry | -10 | 0 | 0 |

f. | Value for long put @ 65 on expiry | 10 | 5 | 0 |

So, when the spot will be at $55 or less it results into a loss; similarly when it is at $65 or more it results into a loss. It means the butterfly pays between $56-$64.

An investor writes a put option with exercise (strike) price of
$80 and buys a put with exercise price of $65. The puts sell for $8
and $3 respectively. If the options are on the same stock with the
same expiration date,

strategy at expiration date of options
ii. Calculate the breakeven point for this strategy and discuss
whether the investor is bullish or bearish on the underlying
stock.
