Up one month, down the next. The stock market this year has offered lots of excitement. As of this writing, broad market indexes have provided little sustenance for bulls or bears, with results not far from early 2018.

One strategy that may be appealing in a relatively flat stock market is to use covered calls. Even if the actual stock you own goes nowhere, trading in options may deliver meaningful investment income. The downside of this approach is that any gains in a strong upturn may be limited.
