Rolled Forward and down UWMC Covered Call -19.22% potential income loss in 129 days
On February 04, 2022, I rolled forward and down 1 covered call on UWMC stock, a position I originally established at the start of October 2021 by investing $682, see: Established New Covered Call on UWMC; Potential Income return 3.9% in 7 days
I rolled down because the stock has dropped significantly under my current strike price. Looking to protect me in case of a further downturn. Might be troubled if a stock will quickly rebound.

here is the trade setup:
SLD 1 UWMC FEB 11 '22 4.5 Call Option 0.12 USD
here I sold next Friday’s (February 11, 2022) expiry call option receiving $12 (before commissions)
What happens next?
On the expiry date, February 11, 2022, UWMC is trading under $4.5 per share - options expire worthlessly and I keep premium - if UWMC trades above $4.5 on the expiry date, my 100 shares will get called away and I realize a loss of $130.4 or potential income loss of -19.22% in 129 days.
Break-even price: $6.82-$0.94= $5.88
I’m getting quite pessimistic on this position, as this is already the 3 time I’m rolling down strike prices. Lets see will I be able to recover this trade.
