The STOCK INDEX OPTION WRITING STRATEGY writes call and put options on index futures (primarily on the S&P index but occasionally also on other indices). The strategy is designed to capture the decay of option premiums. The program sells deep out of the money options after unusual Stock Market movements. Option contracts are written at a sufficient distance, to allow in most cases, for the options to expire worthless. Primarily uncovered or naked options are sold (although spreads are utilized at times). The advisor may also take outright positions in the underlying future contract. The trading strategy is mostly discretionary. Both fundamental and technical analysis is incorporated into the trading decision.
