Want to sell options but concerned with trading an aggressive, speculative strategy?
Selling a covered call, also known as a buy-write, is the only strategy to be considered non-speculative by the Options Clearing Corporation (OCC). As more experienced options traders will know, a covered call is a synthetic short put, meaning the strategy has the same risk-reward profile as that of a short put.

How to read order flow for covered call setups
What stock or chart types should one avoid for covered calls
Why covered calls can generate monthly (or even weekly) income regardless of overall market direction
