You cannot, by law, use margin or borrow against your IRA. Therefore, you cannot engage in any option position that could subject your account to margin.
Most brokers will let you sell covered calls, buy a call, buy a put, or sell a put if there is cash in the account to pay for the stock if you are put to.
Hope this helps. Chris
