Tutor description

Strategy: COVERED PUT You do this strategy when you feel the price of a stock / index is going to remain range bound or move down. Covered Put writing involves a short in a stock / index along with a short Put on the options on the stock / index. The Put that is sold is generally an OTM Put. The investor shorts a stock because he is bearish about it, but does not mind buying it back once the price reaches (falls to) a target price. This target price is the price at which the investor shorts the Put (Put strike price). Selling a Put means, buying the stock at the strike price if exercised (Strategy no. 2). If the stock falls below the Put strike, the investor will be exercised and will have to buy the stock at the strike price (which is anyway his target price to repurchase the stock). The investor makes a profit because he has shorted the stock and purchasing it at the strike price simply closes the short stock position at a profit. And the investor keeps the Premium on the Put sold.
