I have been studying the Harvey Roadtrip trade, as well as John Locke's M3 trade. In Harvey's Roadtrip trade, he enters a 50/40 broken wing butterfly in the puts and hedges the downside with a "teeny" a cheapo out of the money long put with something like a 2 delta. The cost of the teeny doesn't seem like its all that expensive compared with the downside protection that it appears to provide. Similarly, in John Locke's M3 he enters a put butterfly with 50 point wings and uses a long call, deep in the money, with like a 80 delta, to hedge his upside risk. This long call is pretty expensive, although it offers alot of protection to the upside, it is pretty expensive. SO I guess my question is...does a long OTM put somehow offer similar protection to the downside compared to a deep ITM call does to the upside? wouldnt the roadtrip trade benefit from using an ITM put to hedge the downside compared to an OTM put? I guess my goal is to trade with somewhat limited funds and the long call of the M3 position is pretty expensive. Any comments on this?
