Uncovered call

• A short call option position in which the writer does not own shares of underlying stock represented by his option contracts. Also called a naked call, it is much riskier for the writer than a covered call, where the writer owns the underlying stock. If the buyer of a call exercises the option to call, the writer would be forced to buy the stock at market price.

Do not let yourselves be discouraged or embittered by the smallness of the success you are likely to achieve in trying to make life better.

But, if you make life ever so little better, you will have done splendidly, and your lives will have been worthwhile. - Arnold Toynbee
