Why do you not think an ATM butterfly can make money?
Why bother with stock and short call? Just sell naked puts which is exactly what you're doing.
It is because the Market is always moving up and down! How can you make money with ATM Butterfly? Unless you always get out positions with 10-50% profit each time. As the result, you get a little each time and will loss a big when Market jump or down sharply. I do not trading like this! Everyone has his own strategy to trade. Just do whatever you like. "Making Money is the KEY!"
Of course the market always moves up and down. But if you have something like a 10% target profit and 15% max loss, why do you not think you can be profitable trading a butterfly over time?
And who says you lose big when the market jumps sharply? Define "jumps sharply." How often does that occur?
Really ? and what do you do when ?
Seems to me like you have the same problem so why do you think the covered call is easiest ?
