Class: Covered Calls
OIC Education Program

Introduction: What You Will Learn (1 of 4)


For educational purposes, throughout this class on covered calls we will be posing a hypothetical option strategy with hypothetical options and premium amounts. It is assumed that the options used as examples are regular equity options; i.e., they are unadjusted contracts with standard units of trade (100 underlying shares).

Further, any discussions or calculations of potential profit and/or loss amounts in this class do not include the impact of commissions, transaction costs, margin rates, or taxes. All investors should consult with their broker, financial advisor, or tax consultant before employing this or any other equity option strategy.
