What are Covered Calls?
Covered calls are systematic options trading strategies that generate passive income by selling call options on an asset held by the investor on a weekly basis.
When selling options, the seller transfers the right to buy the asset at a specific price in exchange for a premium. The premium is then translated into a return on investment.
Although it sounds simple enough, it is important to keep in mind that the execution (strike) price must be selected carefully because it is the price that decides whether the investor ends up with a gain or a loss. loss for the week.
