This video explains the impact of breakeven with covered call trades, states Alan Ellman of The Blue Collar Investor.

A viewer writes, “I have a question regarding the setup of the PMCC following your strategy. Based upon your entry conditions, I find it very hard to find a setup that works unless I go very deep ITM to the .94-.97 Delta range when selecting my LEAPS. For example, with International Business Machines Corporation (IBM), using the $120 LEAPS with a .75 Delta note that breakeven exceeds the current stock price. Would you go so far as ITM for the LEAPS? How would you set up this trade?”
