Publisher's Summary

New to trading options? Looking to generate some extra monthly cash flow? Covered calls are the place to start.

Perhaps you are sitting in cash, scared to get back into the stock market. But you are also unwilling to lock up your money in a CD that pays next to nothing. Covered calls are a great way to slowly ease back into the market, while starting to generate some income. This conservative strategy is also often used by buy-and-hold investors to generate extra income from stocks in their long-term holdings. Even if you know nothing at all about trading options, this guide will quickly bring you up to speed.

This book will teach you:

  • How to understand options terminology like calls, strike, expiration, etc.
  • The crucial difference between "naked calls" and "covered calls" (don't trade options until you know the difference!)
  • How to find stocks that are the best candidates for covered calls
  • How to pick the best strike price and expiration date for your calls

Covered Calls Made Easy will teach you everything you need to know about the most popular options trading strategy.

And if you ever get stuck, you can always reach out to me by email (provided inside the audiobook), and I will help you.

informative!

thanks for clarifying the tiny details. Most sources talk only of the highlights. For the uninformed and beginners, details are what is of value.

my first reading in stock options

interesting reading, but a bit simplistic since the author skipped a few parameters to be considered (e.g. volatility of returns and alike). But overall worth listening.

Clear and compelling

This audiobook is as short as it is compelling. I had some (positive) experience with options but stopped practising it. After hearing this book, the mechanism was still clearer to me and I learned some new things that convinced me to make my comeback.
I am happy that with such a low hurdle (price and duration) it was possible to learn a lot.
Now I discovered that Matthew wrote other books about investing and am happy to try a few, confident in a similar learning experience as with Covered calls made easy.

I wish Matthew success in writing still other books.

Very useful

This book gives detailed guidance on a conservative and proven strategy
for selling covered calls. The book doesn’t try to list all possible
strategies. Rather, the focus is on one particular strategy that stood
the test of time for the author, and the book explains exactly why it
works. The book also precisely lists the principles and conditions
underlying the strategy that must exist for the strategy to work. The
author clearly knows what he’s talking about. Highly recommended.
