GREYFOX: Thank you for your reply. This is interesting and I've wanted to do some covered call writing with my other investment funds. I followed most of what you said, but a few buzz words through me off a little. Can you give me a few more details on these items:
What are "leaps"? (Writing calls with a strike price higher than the current price?)
What do you mean by "one or two notches" above the current price?
What is "trading around the position"?
Also, I would immagine that your covered stocks get called away fairly frequently. Generally, is the majority of your capital gain short term or long term - for tax purposes?
