Selling A Call Against A Long Stock Position

On this episode of Trading For Newbies, Ryan and Beef explain the basics of the covered call strategy.

A Covered Call is a position that's created by selling a call option against 100 shares of long stock. This is a bullish position that profits from an increase in the price of the stock, but can also make money if the stock trades sideways or even slightly lower.

During the show, Ryan and Beef explain why a Covered Call is a great way for investors to get their feet wet trading options.

There are many benefits to selling a call option against a long stock position compared to just buying the stock.
