Options carry a high level of risk and are not suitable for all investors. Certain requirements must be met to trade options. With long options, investors may lose 100% of funds invested. Covered calls provide downside protection only to the extent of the premium received and limit upside potential to the strike price plus premium received. Please read the options disclosure document titled Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before considering any option transaction.
For the sake of simplicity, the examples in these lectures do not take into consideration commissions and other transaction fees, tax considerations, or margin requirements, which are factors that may significantly affect the economic consequences of strategies displayed.
