Is selling covered calls considered a high risk strategy to generate retirement income?
54% of people found this answer helpful

Surprisingly, covered call writing would be less-than-ideal for your objectives. (And, I say this from someone who sells calls for a living.)  Covered calls can actually reduce the risk of a portfolio.  The criticism against this strategy is that it can potentially forfeit some of a stock’s upward trajectory.  If a stock exceeds your strike price, you will be selling the position.  For many investors, covered call writing is a great way to generate extra income and create a modest hedge.  However, for an aggressive investor, seeking higher returns with a higher risk profile – a long-only strategy with the potential for greater upside capture may be a better way to go.
