In the meantime, there are still slightly more complex option strategies, such as diagonal spreads, that can provide more acceptable income returns if deployed with savvy and prudence.I assume by diagonal spread, you mean buy outer month Deep in the money call and sell near month at the money or slightly higher than the current price of the underlying.What you are essentially doing here is substituting the underlying with the deep in the money calls. Basically reducing your capital commitment and due to low volatility you pay low premium. One has to recognize the risk profile of such strategy is higher than buy-write, of course provides much higher income due to limited capital deployment.
