    When one suggests selling a covered call; what doe that mean?

    To many's surprise, it is NOT a bearish signal but bullish one.

    It says hold onto the stock but the stock appreciation will slow down and the premium on the calls will erode. For there is no defense against TIME for anyone.

    AS a side befit it does give a hedge to the downside but this is not why it is suggested.
