Short Calls in an IRA

Strategies for IRA

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.

Tastyworks IRA account holders can hold naked short positions which can give them more trading flexibility and higher potential theta collection. We know that adding a short call to a naked short put won’t have much influence on the buying power, but it can largely increase the premium we collect and give us a higher ROC with a similar probability of profit.

According to our study on GDXJ, compared to naked short positions in 30 delta call or 30 delta put, a 30 delta strangle roughly doubled the premium we collected with only a 3% increase in buying power, thus roughly doubling our ROC. Also, a 30 delta strangle can help us to collect higher theta with a similar probability of profit.
