I blog about covered call investing at my website: bloomingcactus.typepad.com/revtodds_ira_plot I generally write monthly covered calls and try to make 3-5% a month in my IRA account. My blogsite includes articles about my strategy and trade alerts as I put them on. I have a goal to make an average of 3 percent per month for the next year and increase my IRA account by at least 35 percent. Watch my website to see if I can do it. When I'm not trading, which is most of the time, I run programs for homeless people and I preach at a Lutheran Church on Sundays. I have Masters' degrees in theology and psychology and I'm an avid runner. My wife is the Certified Financial Planner in the family, but I'm the one that loves investing money.
