Writing Covered Calls
In a variety of market conditions, covered call writing can be highly beneficial. It is an excellent method of protecting the equities in your portfolio from losses. Writing covered calls can help you lower the cost basis of your investment, increasing your chances of making a profit. If you have great confidence in the underlying stock, writing out-of-the-money calls can be a profitable strategy. It is possible to make money by selling calls at or near the strike price of a stock if you are uncertain about the stock’s performance in the future.
Remember that in a downtrending market, in-the-money calls offer significantly more protection than out-of-the-money calls. For further information on how to include a covered call strategy into your investment portfolio, please see this post, which goes into detail about how to use in-the-money (ITM), at-the-money (ATM), and out-of-the-money (OTM) covered calls in a variety of market environments.
