I've been investing in the stock market for over 25 years, mostly stocks and mutual funds. I became interested in options in 2003 and spent 2 years learning all I could about various options strategies. After studying and trading a few different strategies I settled on covered calls, since they were more inline with my style of investing. I developed my own covered call trading plan, which uses a value investing approach, and started a covered call portfolio in May 2005. I decided to start a blog in Nov 2006 to serve as my trading journal and hopefully help others learn about covered calls and value investing.
