Rolled Forward and down UWMC Covered Call -13.23% potential income loss in 122 days
On January 28, 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 04 '22 5 Call Option 0.12 USD
here I sold next Friday’s (February 04, 2022) expiry call option receiving $12 (before commissions)
What happens next?
On the expiry date, February 04, 2022, UWMC is trading under $5 per share - options expire worthlessly and I keep premium - if UWMC trades above $5 on the expiry date, my 100 shares will get called away and I realize a loss of $90 or potential income loss of 13.23% in 122 days.
Break-even price: $6.82-$0.85= $5.86
Let’s hope the January stock Selloff is over and next week I will have a chance to roll up and forward this position.
