terryfool48,I do not think there is a Foolish way to write covered calls because the Fools do not consider option trading to be appropriate for investors.The subject of covered calls has been debated regularly on the "Options - You Make the Call" message board if you want to take some time and search through it. As a starting point I would suggesthttp://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=13022551&sort=recommendationswhich is the most recommended post from that board.I also suggest you read the article athttp://www.cob.vt.edu/finance/faculty/dmc/derivs/Essay34.pdfwhich I believe supplies a realistic view of writing covered calls.I will say that I do write some covered calls, but I do not do so often. IMHO the disadvantages usually, but not always, outweigh the advantages of the strategy.Good Luck,Z
