|Re: Covered Call Exercise Question|
When you sell your 7 covered calls the money you receive is that premium, so you get that up front as a capital gain, unless you decide to buy to cover and then that difference is either a gain or loss.
Edit: Also if the stock price is higher than the strike price at expiration that's when they are taken away, however I've had mine taken away the day before a dividend date,so that happens too!

Covered Call Exercise Question
Okay - so lets say I own exelon stock 700 shares and want to do a covered call at 31 or 30... and I sell 7 calls at 30 or 31 strike...
If the stock crosses 30 do I get settled and lose my shares and collect the premium then or does that ONLY happen at expiry?
