What is a covered call strategy and how does it make you money?

What is the smart and professional way to trade options?

There are many ways to trade options, but unfortunately, many people trade options the wrong way.
Initially, people start trading options by buying single calls or puts. Sadly by trading in this way, it causes them to have continuous losses that spiral out of control.

The reason buying trading single option contracts creates regular losses is that time works against you.

However, there is a better way to trade options! The smarter approach to trading options is to trade option spreads where time works for you instead of against you.

Watch this video to learn more about the real way professionals trade options to get a better understanding and see how you can make time premium work for you instead of against you.
