Gains on margin.

  1. What happens when you are in a seasonal spread and you get a recommendation for another seasonal spread that uses the same contracts?

    Is it a new position, averaging up or is it a pyramid?

    Do you call this a completely new spread to figure your break even, trailing stops and projections, or do you average it up with the current spread, or is it a pyramid?

    What do you call the successive spreads in a series of seasonal spreads?

    I could not find the correct picture. But the idea is that many cycles may exist at the same time. How do you account for them when they use the same contracts?

    Do you use original capital, realized gains or unrealized gains in your analysis?
