## Spread option valuation

Spread option derives its value from the difference between the prices of two or more assets, it can be considered as a type of rainbow option in that it's payoff depends on 2 or 3 underlying assets. for instance, for a 2 underlying assets call spread option, the payoff is like max(S1 - S2 - K, 0), where K is the strike price betting on the spread (or difference) of these two stock prices. Spread option is widely used in energy industry, especially in oil industry.
