Aries’ covered call strategy would be suitable if one expects the market to be neutral, or are moderately bullish on certain portfolios. In such market conditions, the income from the sale of a covered call can potentially dampen the loss of value of the underlying security in the event of market decline. This covered call strategy involves buying a stock/ETF and selling an appropriate number of calls against the underlying asset. It is necessary to understand that maximum gain is limited, the risk is the same as owning the stock/ETF, minus the credit for selling the calls. This strategy can serve you as an additional way to profit from stock/ETF ownership.
