Performance & Strategies
Dynamic ETF Option Strategy
The strategy embodies the idea of selling put options against cash and collecting premium that seeks consistent income stream for the port-folio. The approach targets income generation and lowered volatility than the broad market. The strategy involves selling out-of-the-money puts collecting premiums as long as the ETF price of the underlying remains above the put strike price at expiration. ETFs may be assigned at a price discounted from current trading prices. The put options are used as a tool to acquire an ETF at a discounted and pre-established price, which is the strike price of the option. Covered calls are used as a tool to exit assigned ETFs and generate income in the interim. This strategy is appropriate for a long-term investor looking to generate profits from the collection of premium and/or to go long ETF positions at a significant discount to their current trading prices. The strategy can only be implemented for taxable accounts; IRA accounts cannot utilize this strategy given the nature of put selling.
