The calendar spread is a neutral strategy: it profits if the stock remains range-bound. To create a calendar spread with calls, we write a call with a certain strike price (in my example, K = 20) and buy a call with the same exercise price but a LONGER maturity (in my example, we buy a call with a one year maturity, compared to the three-month maturity of the written call).
