# Can you help identify/name this equity options strategy? [closed]

I am thinking of making such a trade:

BUY PUT $590 MARCH WRITE PUT$600 APRIL


I have done some reading and it looks like a diagonal put spread, but the diagonal put spread uses an out-of-the-money put near-term expiration – “front-month” and a further out-of-the-money put, with expiration one month later – “back-month”.
