Managing Options Positions

Adjusting Call Options Cont.

In the second part of our series on position adjustments, we’ll focus on the covered call. After a quick review of the strategy and its risk profile, we’ll take a look at an investor’s motivation for initiating the covered call. What position adjustments do you need to consider when the forecast on the underlying changes? How can you roll strikes up or down? And what about assignment – when should you expect it, and what can you do to help avoid it?
