Primary financial tools for hedging against risks are financial derivatives. One of the most successful and widespread option strategies is the Covered Call or so called Buy-Write strategy. Investors following the Covered Call strategy sell a call option and buy the underlying at the same time. Thus investors are able to protect themselves from a total loss and profit simultaneously from sideways market movements. Deutsche Börse reproduces this well-known and very successful investment strategy by means of the DAXplus® Covered Call index. The rolling index is based on the DAX® portfolio and a call option on DAX which is traded on the Eurex forward market.
