for all of you learning short option trading, I’ve found a simply written book solely on selling single, spread and covered call options. It’s written in plain language, sans algos, with “click-by-click” directions on entering a trade, wow! The focus is on not owning shares, unless assigned, selling Delta 12, 6 weeks out, monthly/weekly, stock or ETF short puts, call/put credit spreads or covered calls for .30 to .50 cents. The is a Kindle book for 9.99…get the app free, buy the Kindle edition. Look for: Earn 5 to 10% Monthly Selling Options: Specific Step-By-Step Wealth Building System. Duvall, Boyce. Blocker Publishing. Kindle Edition.
