I understand T212 sees options as gambling but I think they should give access to the safer strategies like selling covered calls so that we can generate income/reduce cost basis.
With covered calls all you are risking is your shares being called away (at a higher price than your cost, so you will still be net positive). You are just selling future upside for upfront income.
We aren’t asking options strategies with undefined max losses. Covered calls are relatively safe and it would be a huge differtiator to every single one of UK brokers. Your partnership with IB would also make it relatively straightforward to implement this, correct me if I am wrong.
