i'm still new to options and would like some help understanding them.... I've read many books but trying to just confirm a few things... if say, I short a call option....this is considered a naked call if I'm not mistaken...(can someone please tell me why this is dangerous assuming the market is going in the direction I have chosen?) is it because, if it so happen to dip the other way before ending the day in the predicted direction, someone can close my position without my authorization? please do not give me lectures on that I am not ready and to stay away from options etc. etc. This is precisely why I am asking this question.
