Covered Call and similar strategies are great to use in conjunction with your share portfolio.

They are like an in-between “trading” and “investing”, and are great for investors who want to be more active in their share portfolio management.

They provide the ability to increase the yield on portfolios, generate additional income, insure stock, and accumulate stock at cheaper prices.

This course is designed to fast-track your knowledge by focusing on a practical approach to Covered Call type strategies. The desired outcome is feeling both competent and comfortable with our guidelines and using them to implement Covered Call type strategies in your own portfolio.
