Entering Stock Option Trades in a Brokerage Account
Stock options can be traded as a single transaction or as a combination of two or more different stock options executed as one trade. As an example: I can sell short 1 XYZ Company Nov17 2021 10.00 Call option for a price of $3.00 giving me a credit of $3.00 and at the same time buy long 1 XYZ Company Nov 17, 2021, 15.00 Call option at a price of $1.00 creating a debit of $1. In this example, these two options executed as a single trade yields a net credit of $2.00. How do I enter this one (two-part) trade into my brokerage account within Quicken Premier?
