Covered Call Option Strategy-Bullish Options Trading Strategies

Covered call option trading strategy consists of two parts in which the trader anticipates the security's price to increase slightly in the near future. Investors/traders use this option strategy to go long on an underlying security and sell call options on a share-for-share basis. The ensuing situation is known as a covered call position, regardless of whether the shares are bought before or after the calls are sold. Covered Call Strategy involves selling of OTM Call Option of the same underlying.

Risk with Covered Call Option trading Strategy

When the underlying asset rises above the shorted strike price, the call option holder will begin to suffer losses. The premium offers some profit possibility above the strike price, but it is restricted. In the event of a significant stock price increase, covered call writers often feel as if they lost a fantastic opportunity to profit from upside gains.

Reward

When the security price rises, the strategy will benefit by pocketing the premium obtained from shorting the Call Option.

    Scenario 1

    If the Bank Nifty at expiry ends at 40000, the trader's long position will appreciate by Rs. 20000 [(40000-39500)*40] + the premium he got for penning it, i.e. Rs.7160 (179*40). His overall profit will be Rs 27160.

    Scenario 2

    If Bank Nifty at expiry ends at 41000, the trader will benefit on his long futures position but make losses on his short call option contract. His total payoff from the strategy would be Rs. 47160. {(41000-39500) - (41000 - 40500) + (179)} *40.
