Seven pluses to day-trading training workshops for income provide valuable instruction before putting one’s money at risk.

The seven pluses to day-trading training workshops give investors knowledge needed to pursue profits successfully, said Hugh Grossman, founder of the DayTradeSpy Ultimate Training Workshop. Understanding the ins and outs of day-trading can help investors reduce the risk of incurring losses due to inexperience, he warned.

To provide the needed preparation, Grossman suggested that newcomers to day-trading or those who want to aim for consistent profitability participate in the DayTradeSpy Ultimate Training Workshop that he developed with his fellow seasoned trader Ahren Stephens.

The partners teamed up to prepare a total of 11 video presentations. Each session focuses on a different aspect of option trading.

In all its ”nuances,” the market is like a spouse who has ups and downs, Grossman said. Virtually all the trades the duo recommends involve options of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY), the largest and first U.S.-listed exchange-traded fund (ETF).

“You just have to know when to hang around and when to stay away,” Grossman said. “Once you master SPY’s personality, the market is your oyster.”

Grossman said he and Stephens have seen almost everything the market can “throw at them.” The Ultimate Training Workshop is intended to help investors avoid making mistakes that will cost them money, Grossman added.

Seven Pluses to Day-Trading Training Workshops for Income: 1. Ultimate Training

The Ultimate Training Workshop is foundational for understanding the basics of options for participants who want to graduate onto to the DayTradeSpy Trading Room and the Pick of the Day advisory service, Stephens told me. The Pick of the Day is easier to use initially but the Trading Room opens up a potentially vast opportunity to profit from more sophisticated options trades, Stephens added.

The consequences of starting to trade options without adequate preparation can be costly.

“Many traders jump into the options market in total ignorance; hence the reason they quickly lose their money,” said Grossman, a seasoned options trader and trainer who heads the Ultimate Training Workshop, the DayTradeSpy Trading Room and the Pick of the Day advisory service. “Because options are linked to an underlying asset, they think they are simply trading a cheaper version of that asset. Nothing could be further from the truth.”

Seven Pluses to Day-Trading Training Workshops for Income: 2. Stocks Vs. Options

When a trader purchases a stock, the investor is buying a piece of that company or fund. The value of that share depends upon the net value of the company, Grossman said.

“It is an asset that can be held, traded, willed to your children and even used as collateral to some extent,” Grossman continued.

Options, on the other hand, hold no asset. An option is a contract that gives the holder the right, but not the obligation, to trade the underlying stock for a certain price by a specific date, Grossman explained.

“There are certain implications to this that are very important, and to which many traders seeking to satisfy their drive to get rich quick are oblivious,” Grossman continued.

Seven Pluses to Day-Trading Training Workshops for Income: 3. SPY Options

For those who are new to options, it is essential to know key differences from stocks and their impact on one’s account, Grossman told me. In fact, with certain strategies, an investor may become obligated to more than the money in his or her trading account, he added.

“If not careful, you may find yourself indebted to your broker for a substantial amount,” Grossman said. “This is just one reason you need to understand options trading. It is also one key reason all traders, especially newbies, should consider our DayTradeSPY Ultimate Training Workshop. We cover these important aspects of trading, along with all key points to our methodology in earning a respectable daily income.”

Many traders know how to trade and even make money, Grossman said. But only a fraction know how to keep it, he added.

Seven Pluses to Day-Trading Training Workshops for Income: 4. Money Management Module

The Ultimate Training Workshop‘s Money Management module addresses “tips, tricks and traps on capital preservation,” Grossman said.

Unless a trader is familiar and actively managing his or her money, it is only a matter of time before they “blow up their accounts,” Grossman cautioned.

The Ultimate Training Workshop addresses the number one reason traders lose: lack of emotional control, Grossman continued. The Mental Aspects of Trading session is one of the most viewed webinars, where we discuss the effects of fear, greed, ego, “fear of missing out” (FOMO) and “you only live once” (YOLO), he added.

Those emotions will rule the trading with a “race to the bottom,” for those who fail to control them, Grossman warned.

“We actually offer you simple exercises to help you hone these all-important skills,” Grossman said.

“Income investors can benefit by learning about the foundational techniques of both fundamental and technical analysis to improve their investment decisions in both the long- and short term,” Stephens said.

Seven Pluses to Day-Trading Training Workshops for Income: 5. Repairing Trades

“Any trader who tells you they never lose is lying to you,” Grossman said. “We address losers head on with our Repairing Trades Gone Bad video, a must have for any trader. It’s all there, in the Ultimate Training Workshop.

“One vital point we teach in avoiding losses: do not use stop losses. While theoretically they sound promising, in reality, they do not work for options. We invoke other methods to minimize losses.”

Certain traders may wonder how Stephens pulls lofty predictions seemingly out of the air, Grossman said. However, there is “nothing magical” about it, Grossman added.

“He shows you in his segment with the Fibonacci and Andrews’ Pitchfork combinations, enabling you to earn stunning gains,” Grossman said.

Seven Pluses to Day-Trading Training Workshops for Income: 6. Preparation

“Every trader, from beginners to seasoned pros, would benefit from our Ultimate Training Workshop,” Grossman told me. “We recommend viewing each session in its entirety first, noting key session times and returning to review them later. The advantage about the recordings is that you can always pause, rewind and fast forward, picking up the subtle nuances that make all the differences.”

The Ultimate Training Workshop is the culmination of more than 40 years of combined market experience from two seasoned traders, Grossman said.

“You owe to yourself to invest in yourself first, before setting a single penny in the all-consuming stock market,” Grossman continued.

The Ultimate Training Workshop quickly and definitively drills right into what matters, supporting all aspects of trading with 11 fast-moving, ‘compelling video modules,” each about an hour and a half in length, Grossman explained. From building confidence to growing your trading account using “exclusive money-making strategies,” participants are taught about trading.

It is insufficient to know only enough to be dangerous; one needs to be aware of all aspects of options trading to enjoy long-term success, Grossman advised.

Seven Pluses to Day-Trading Training Workshops for Income: 7. Day-Trading Resists Recession

The U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) recently released its third estimate of real gross domestic product (GDP) growth at a 3.4% annual rate for the final quarter of 2023, as well as 2.5% for the full year. But BEA  also reported gross output (GO), which is a much broader measure of total economic activity, including the all-important supply chain, which showed an economic slowdown, said Mark Skousen, PhD, the head of the Forecasts & Strategies investment newsletter and a Presidential Fellow in economics at Chapman University.

Mark Skousen, head of Forecasts & Strategies, meets with Paul Dykewicz.

“Real GO was a full percentage point below gross domestic product in the fourth quarter, 2.4%,” Skousen reported.

“Worse, business-to-business spending actually fell slightly, by 0.3%… and has been virtually flat since the start of 2022, as this chart shows,” Skousen wrote.

“GO and business spending are leading indicators, suggesting a slowdown and perhaps even a recession in 2024,” Skousen cautioned. Click here to read Skousen’s op-ed about GO and the risk of a recession in the March 5 edition of the Wall Street Journal.

Geopolitical Risk Rises With Death of Aid Workers and Civilians in Gaza

Israel’s efforts to find and destroy an extensive tunnel system in neighboring Gaza that has been used to stockpile weapons, as well as hide the leaders and Hamas militants who were responsible for the horrific Oct. 7 attack that killed an estimated 1,200 people and involved the taking of 240 hostages, have caused a heavy loss of life. The Gaza Ministry of Health estimates that a total of more than 33,000 Hamas fighters and civilians have lost their lives there since the war began Oct. 7, but this week’s death toll includes seven World Central Kitchen aid providers who perished when the three vehicles that they were using to distribute food were fired upon by Israel Defense Forces (IDFs) who reportedly mistook them for hostile militants.

Chef José Andrés called for an independent investigation and said the three-vehicle convoy was clearly marked with a sign of his World Central Kitchen charity, which reported the planned movements to the IDF in advance. The IDF announced that two senior officers had been dismissed as a result of its probe of the World Central Kitchen incident.

U.S. President Joe Biden spoke by phone with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to caution that future U.S. assistance to Israel will hinge on how humanitarian interests are addressed in Gaza moving forward. Biden added that he was “outraged and heart broken” by the deaths of the World Central Kitchen aid workers.

The number of injured people from the war in Gaza is estimated by its Ministry of Health to reach 75,600 people. Israeli military officials reported that at least 256 of its soldiers have been killed since they entered Gaza to try to free an estimated 100 hostages who remain alive, along with the return of remains from 30 people who reportedly were killed during and after the Oct. 7 raid.

In another international hot spot, Russia’s military forces are advancing in eastern Ukraine after capturing the key town of Avdiivka in February. Ukraine’s soldiers are trying to hold their ground, with long-term shortages of artillery shells with the U.S. Congress unable to agree upon providing additional assistance.

The use of SPY options offers an alternative to avoid the vagaries of the market that can hurt investors, especially if a recession arises and geopolitical risk worsens.

Six reasons for income investors to day-trade amid disasters offer ways to reduce risk.

The six reasons for income investors to day-trade during disasters warrant weighing to provide an alternative to long-term strategies that can cause worry for weeks, months or years. The goal with day-trading is to produce profits in just hours or even minutes.

The short-term nature of day-trading can mitigate the effects of continuing crises such as disasters like the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore on March 26, ongoing wars and potential recessions. Day-trading also avoids the need to know each industry or company well enough to put one’s money at risk in narrow ways.

Six Reasons for Income Investors to Day-Trade Amid Disasters: 1. DayTradeSPY Trading Room

Novice day-traders may want to consider the DayTradeSPY Trading Room that not only features the supervision of its founder and head trader Hugh Grossman, but his fellow seasoned trader Ahren Stephens. Each of them brings his own experience and expertise to subscribers of the service, Grossman said.

Since the pair take different approaches to trading options, they are able to cross-verify whatever trend the other partner identifies. Verification of a trend is “paramount” to attaining a high degree trading success, Grossman told me. When both he and Stephens agree on the market’s direction and strength, the traders who follow their guidance generally profit, Grossman added.

“When our indicators unite, our trades ignite,” Grossman told me.

Six Reasons for Income Investors to Day-Trade Amid Disasters: 2. Sidestepping Risks

“Our daily Trading Room is unique in a number of ways,” Grossman told me.

One way is to sidestep market risks by initiating trades and exiting them within an hour or even less, Grossman told me.

Hugh Grossman leads DayTradeSpy’s Trading Room and Pick of the Day.

The Trading Room advisory service that Grossman started has “catapulted” to a new level of expertise with the addition of Stephens, who brings his indicators like Fibonacci retracements and Andrews’ Pitchfork, the senior partner said. By collaborating, they identify trades that have a high probability of success, Grossman continued.

Ahren Stephens co-heads Pick of the Day and the Trading Room.

Combined, their joint analysis offers extra brainpower for their subscribers who want to tap the guidance they offer through their DayTradeSpy Trading Room advisory service, Grossman said.

“Our Trading Room is an event that traders look forward to, earn while you learn and absorb all you can from two outstanding mentors,” Grossman told me.

Six Reasons for Income Investors to Day-Trade Amid Disasters: 3. Avoid Market Unpredictability

“Frankly, I have no idea where the market will be years from now or even a week from now,” Grossman told me this week. “There are so many dichotomies at play, it’s near impossible to predict anything anymore, if we ever truly could.”

For years, predictions have been plentiful about how a recession of unprecedented proportions is on the horizon, Grossman continued. Yet almost everyone seems to be working and making money, he added.

Another big risk widely talked about is the potential impact of global warming. Young activists such as Sweden’s’ Greta Thunberg and India’s Licypriya Kangujam have spoken publicly about the dangers of climate change and the need to take swift action to address it.

“All I hear about is global warming and how humankind will be driven into oblivion if we don’t all start driving electric cars,” Grossman said. “Yet, how many… recall talk about an ice age worry back in the 1970s?”

Right now, at least two major wars are being fought, immigration and drug problems are out of control and the world fears artificial intelligence will blow up the planet, yet the stock market continues to eke out new highs, Grossman said.

“For that reason, I cannot invest in a market fraught with anxiety and fear, having no rational reason for its exuberance,” Grossman explained.

Six Reasons for Income Investors to Day-Trade Amid Disasters: 4. Short-term Focus

“I can handle very short-term engagement,” Grossman said. “Day-trading SPY options gives me exactly that: in and out quickly after having made some money based on immediate market nuances, both financially and emotionally. Making a consistent income on the stock market is not that difficult, if you know how.”

Day-traders can stay connected to the market on a minute-by-minute basis in advisory services that specialize in quick trading, said Stephens, a co-leader of the Trading Room. Every morning, 9:20 to 10:30 a.m. ET, Stephens and Grossman host the Trading Room, a virtual meeting where training and trading converge in a live, real-time market environment.

“We need to think quickly, logically and without emotion in an effort to buy and sell quickly and to be on our toes at a moment’s notice,” Stephens said. “Because of this fast execution and response time, sometimes it is possible that our emotions get involved in our trading setups. For me, I would say that occasionally emotions can play a role in our trading decisions.

“When news items come out and trades are going in your favor, as well as when you have to wait out a news event that isn’t going in your favor, that is when you need to exercise either quick exits or long-term patience.”

Six Reasons for Income Investors to Day-Trade Amid Disasters: 5. Use Trend Indicators

The pair look at fundamentals to gauge the overall market sentiment. Then they back it up with an in-depth look at Fibonacci and Andrews Pitchfork indicators, among others.

In addition, Grossman told me he likes to use short-term technical indicators such as exponential moving averages, support and resistance levels and chart patterns. With the collective strategies of both partners, the result usually is a successful trade, he added.

Six Reasons for Income Investors to Day-Trade Amid Disasters: 6. Successful Track Record

The DayTradeSpy Trading Room features a 14-year track record of success, Grossman said.

“The DayTradeSPY Trading Room is the longest running trading room that we know of… now in its 14th year,” Grossman said. “We know what works and what doesn’t in both trading and training.”

The partners also spoke favorably about the interactive chat aspect to their Trading Room, allowing real-time feedback with their subscribers.

Six Reasons for Income Investors to Day-Trade Amid Disasters Trump Emotion

“Sprinkle in some emotional control and, like magic, we have a successful trade,” Grossman said. “Repeat this process day after day, and not only is it profitable, but a lot of fun as well.”

There is something very rewarding about beating the market at its own game, Grossman continued.

“And I hold no apologies for doing so, either,” Grossman said.

Six Reasons for Income Investors to Day-Trade Amid Disasters Can Lead to Quick Profits

“Long-term investing may work for some but earning 5% annually on a certificate of deposit does not excite me,” Grossman said. “Nor can I afford to gamble on ever-changing technology stocks, meme stocks or anything affected by government policy. But pay me 5% a day on the money invested in SPY call options and I am happy.”

An average person tends to think of trading in terms of normal rules of life, Stephens said. However, that view is flawed, he added.

“If you work harder at something, you tend to get rewarded with bonuses, with promotions, or with a greater sense of purpose and accomplishment,” Stephens said. “This is not true in trading.

“People who work harder in trading often get burned out, work longer hours, or make trading mistakes because they are chasing the one that got away. If you tend to think of trading in terms of a similarity to fishing, that would be a better mindset to have. Every day you come to the ocean: there are whales – the market makers, the sharks – institutional traders, and the swordfish, mackerel and salmon – the retail traders. This is the one place in the world where the longer you last, the higher in the food chain you can go. We as traders are also the fisherman.

Income Investors Limit Time Commitment by Day-Trading

Why the entire world is not day-trading is a mystery, Grossman said. Participants in his Trading Room can accumulate small amounts of money every day, trading only options on one stock or fund for about an hour a day, he added.

The amount earned depends on one’s investment, but many people start small, build their accounts and eventually reach “epic levels,” Grossman said.

Almost all the trades involve options of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NYSE ARCA: SPY).

“Get immediate answers, relevant answers and answers you need to hear,” Grossman said.

Alternatives Include Pick of the Day

For those not ready to try the Trading Room, Grossman suggested the DayTradeSPY Pick of the Day.

The Pick of the Day is “ideal” for traders who may not have the time to watch the market or stare at charts,” Grossman said. The Pick of the Day is sent to the inbox of each subscriber daily at about 9 a.m. ET.

Subscribers are provided with an overview of the exact trades that Grossman and Stephens are looking at before each market opens.

Day-Trading Newcomers Can Subscribe to the Ultimate Trading Workshop

Grossman and Stephens also offer their Ultimate Training Workshop to help people day trade profitably. They created videos based on a live event held a few months ago, teaching everything they thought would help day-traders.

“If you have never traded options before, this is what you need,” Grossman said. “Even if you are a seasoned trader, the nuances, tips, tricks and traps you will pick up from this series of 11 sessions, each roughly an hour and a half in length, will benefit you immensely.”

The two investment gurus share their “deep in the trenches” experience with concepts that cannot be found anywhere else, Grossman said. Key topics include setting up Schwab (formerly TD Ameritrade) Think or Swim charts to visualize patterns, identifying key indicators and strategies, “repairing trades,” money management and more, he added.

Stephens provides a deep-dive analysis that can answer many questions in the Q&A section of the Ultimate Training Workshop, Grossman said.

“It’s all there,” Grossman advised. “Of course, there may be other updated information only available through our trading room sessions, but the Ultimate Training Workshop will provide the launch pad you need to get started day-trading SPY options.”

The videos are available for at least six months and can be viewed as often as desired during that period, Grossman said.

“Fast forward, pause and rewind,” Grossman continued. “We recommend going through them at least once completely, even if you are an experienced trader. It’s the little subtleties that can make all the difference in your trading. Take advantage of 40+ combined years of Hugh and Ahren’s market participation… master the Ultimate Training Workshop.”

Geopolitical Risk Proliferates

Geopolitical risk exists both domestically and internationally. Even local disasters can disrupt trade and commerce internationally.

One example occurred on March 26 when a large cargo ship lost use of its engine, electronics and control of its steering, then careened into the famed Francis Scott Key Bridge that connected two sections of Baltimore on I-695 across the Patapsco River. The Singapore-flagged, 984-foot-long container ship called “Dali” collided with a pillar of the bridge, triggering a massive emergency response when multiple people and vehicles plunged into the water.

\Two construction workers who fell from the bridge into the water were rescued, but one remains seriously injured. The bodies of two construction workers who were in a red pick-up truck when the bridge collapsed have been found and recovered. A search is ongoing to recover other missing people, including four additional construction workers.

In 2023, the Port of Baltimore handled a record 52.3 million tons of foreign cargo worth $80 billion. That total ranked the port as America’s largest for the transport of foreign cargo. Approximately 15,000 workers are directly impacted and about 140,000 workers are indirectly impacted from the bridge’s collapse, according to state officials.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Peter Buttigieg said in post-accident press briefing that between $100 to $200 million in value of goods pass through Baltimore’s port each day, with about $2 million in wages affected on a daily basis by the closure.

“If ships aren’t moving, they’re not working,” Buttigieg said. “That’s one of our main areas of concern.

The economic impact will be huge, with cruise ships and other vessels that use the Port of Baltimore restricted from normal operations for an unknown period of time. Maryland Gov. Wes Moore requested $60 million in emergency relief funds from the federal government “for our immediate response efforts and to lay the foundation for a rapid recovery.”

The funds would be used for the state to proceed as quickly and safely as possible, with debris removal, demolition, traffic operations and other emergency needs. The request supplements funding provided by other federal partners to provide related work for the emergency response, according to the governor’s office.

Russia Suffers Attack from ISIS-K

Russia suffered a murderous attack reportedly committed by ISIS-K that killed at least 143 people, including five children, and injured more than 100 others at a concert hall near Moscow on Friday, March 22. The assault by four gunmen, who also started a fire by using incendiary devices at the building, marked the latest major incident that shows mounting geopolitical risk in the world.

U.S. government officials warned Russia’s leaders days earlier in writing that ISIS militants planned an attack in or around Moscow, but its President Vladimir Putin rebuffed the advice and called it “provocative.” The assault by the gunmen became the worst terrorist attack of Russia’s capital area in decades.

As far the ongoing invasion of Ukraine, Russian forces attacked a residential area in Kharkiv on March 27, killing one and injuring at least 19, including children. President Putin cautioned on March 18 that the membership of nearby countries in NATO could spark World War III if they interfere with his military activities.

Putin won re-election to a fifth six-year term just weeks after the mysterious death of political opponent Alexei Navalny, one of Putin’s most ardent critics in Russia. Navalny seemed fine to observers when he appeared in a courtroom the day before he died.

Navalny’s burial on Friday, March 1, drew thousands of mourners. With Navalny dead, Putin had no genuine opposition to his re-election to a new six-year term as Russia’s president during the country’s March 15-17 election.

Navalny’s family claims their loved one was fatally poisoned at the arctic prison with a nerve agent on Putin’s orders.

President Putin’s surprise attack of Ukraine with Russian forces more than two years ago has caused him to send continuing waves of soldiers into battle to gain land that is within the sovereign borders of its neighboring nation. The invasion shows no signs of waning, as Russia keeps firing missiles at civilian targets in Ukraine, with women, children and the elderly among those killed or injured.

UN Votes for Ceasefire in Gaza, But Not Release of Hostages

The United Nations Security Council voted on Monday, March 25, for a resolution demanding a cease-fire between Israel and Palestinian militant group Hamas, without requiring the release of an estimated 130 remaining hostages abducted on Oct. 7. The United States abstained from the vote, causing Israel to cancel a high-level delegation’s planned visit to Washington, D.C.

Middle East diplomacy efforts have not borne fruit as Israel seeks the return of the hostages taken from their country by Hamas militants during a murderous raid on Oct. 7, as well as to bring the perpetrators to justice. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) entered neighboring Gaza, but the death toll there has been high, reaching more than 32,550 at press time, according to Hamas officials.

The war started on Oct. 7 when Hamas fighters invaded southern Israel in an unprecedented assault that reportedly killed 1,163. Other barbarous acts included rapes, torture and the abduction of at least 250 others at gunpoint.

A week-long truce in late November led to Hamas freeing more than 100 Israeli and foreign hostages in exchange for Israel releasing about 240 Palestinian prisoners. However, talks aimed at securing the release of additional hostages have stalled.

President Biden approved and initiated a humanitarian air drop and food distribution for beleaguered Palestinian civilians in Gaza. Roughly 130 hostages abducted on Oct. 7 by Hamas remain trapped in Gaza. But Israeli officials say about a quarter of them are dead.

Income investors worried about geopolitical risk may want to consider day-trading to limit the potential impact of disasters by taking advantage of the quick nature of such trades.

Eight reasons for income investors to use a trading room could prove compelling, said stock sherpa Hugh Grossman, who recommended the one he offers with a fellow seasoned trader.

For income investors open to day-trading, Grossman shared seven reasons why he and seasoned trader Ahren Stephens try to distinguish their DayTradeSPY Trading Room from the rest. Since they take different approaches to trading options, they have two ways of verifying whatever trend that one identifies also is a proverbial friend to the other.

“When our indicators unite, our trades ignite,” Grossman told me.

The verification of a trend is “paramount” to achieving a very high degree of success in trading, Grossman said. When both he and Stephens concur on market direction and strength, the wise traders who follow their guidance generally enjoy successful execution, Grossman added.

Eight Reasons for Income Investors to Use a Trading Room: Gain Leverage

Imagine that you need to produce $200 a day from a starting capital base of $20,000.  A standard dividend payout every month, quarter or year would not produce the needed daily income.

“Using our methodology, you should be able to generate your daily gains quite effortlessly, actually,” Grossman said.

First, options provide huge leverage, Grossman said. An investor does not need much of a move on the underlying asset to see a change in the option price, he added.

“This benefit alone enables even the most humble of traders, beginners and those who may not have overreaching wealth, to enter the foray of the market,” Grossman said. “Each option controls 100 underlying shares. ‘At the money’ options generally have a delta of 50, meaning that for every dollar the stock moves, the option moves $ .50. If the stock costs $500 per share, the option expiring a few days out might cost only $2. Therefore, it would cost you $200 — $2 x 100 underlying shares that it controls — to buy a single ‘call’ option, if you expect the market to rise.”

Eight Reasons for Income Investors to Use a Trading Room: Two Sherpas

“Our daily Trading Room is unique in a number of ways,” Grossman told me.

Most notably, Grossman said he has a set of indicators that he has used successfully for years. Exponential moving averages (EMAs), support and resistance, chart patterns and trends are among key factors that determine high probability trades, he added.

“Short-term gains can be had by following tight technical entries using the 10 and 20 EMAs,” Grossman told me. “This technique is both profitable and fun as you are actively trading, beating the market at its own game.”

It also helps if the EMAs are climbing on the five-minute chart to support the trade, Grossman said.

“That’s almost a sure profit for short-term gains, Grossman told me.

Eight Reasons for Income Investors to Use a Trading Room: Partnership

The Trading Room advisory service that Grossman founded has catapulted to a new level of expertise with the addition of Ahren Stephens, who brings his own set of indicators like Fibonacci retracements and Andrews’ Pitchfork. By collaborating, they identify trades that have a high probability of success, Grossman continued.

Ahren Stephens co-heads of Pick of the Day and the Trading Room.

Combined, their joint analysis offers extra brainpower for their subscribers who want to tap the guidance they offer to the subscribers of their Trading Room advisory service, Grossman said.

“Our Trading Room is an event that traders look forward to, earn while you learn and absorb all you can from two outstanding mentors,” Grossman told me.

Eight Reasons for Income Investors to Use a Trading Room: Track Record

A second reason to consider the DayTradeSpy Trading Room is its 14-year track record, Grossman said.

“The DayTradeSPY Trading Room is the longest running trading room that we know of… now in its 14th year,” Grossman said. “We know what works and what doesn’t in both trading and training.”

The partners also spoke favorably about the interactive chat aspect to their Trading Room, allowing real-time feedback with their subscribers.

Eight Reasons for Income Investors to Use a Trading Room: Subscriber Friendly

Grossman told me that their Trading Room is “fun” and typically profitable for their subscribers. The intent is to help subscribers trade profitably and enjoy doing so, he added.

These are not “watch Hugh and Ahren” trade sessions to guide subscribers in doing so profitably, Grossman said. The focus is on the subscribers and meeting their needs, he added.

Another plus is the limited time commitment that is required each day, Grossman added. Subscribers are expected to join them virtually at 9:20 a.m. ET and usually wrap up about 10:30 a.m. ET, he added.

Eight Reasons for Income Investors to Use a Trading Room: Interactive Sessions

Another distinction between the DayTradeSPY Trading Room and its competitors is the interactive aspect, Grossman said. Subscribers are welcome and encouraged to communicate directly with the two hosts, privately, during these live sessions, he continued.

Almost all the trades involve options of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NYSE ARCA: SPY).

“Get immediate answers, relevant answers and answers you need to hear,” Grossman said.

Eight Reasons for Income Investors to Use a Trading Room: Thin Time Commitment

The goal is to help subscribers profit in a short amount of time that ideally is less than an hour a day, Grossman said.

“Our events are respectful of your time,” Grossman told me. “We do not monopolize your day but try to teach you first thing in the morning from 9:20 a.m. to 10:30 am, ET, so you can carry on with the rest of your day.”

For less than an hour a day, the potential to profit is unbeatable, Grossman continued.

Eight Reasons for Income Investors to Use a Trading Room: Complementary Skills

With two seasoned traders, subscribers have double the expertise to tap, Grossman said Each is “knowledgeable” in his respective areas, he added.

Together, they have a combined 40-plus years of market participation,” Grossman told me.

“Nobody else provides such comprehensive, focused training at such an affordable price.”

Eight Reasons for Income Investors to Use a Trading Room: Entertainment Value

The last reason to use the DayTradeSPY Trading Room is that the sessions are designed to be entertaining and fun, Grossman said.

“Our members are amused by our humor and lightheartedness during the ‘off times,’” Grossman told me. “When trades are ‘on,’ they are exciting, motivating, inspiring and confidence building.”

The result typically is profits for subscribers, as well as a good time for all, Grossman said.

“It is little wonder those in our Trading Room are trading well. They know how to combine Andrews’ Pitchfork, Fibonacci, support and resistance, Exponential Moving Averages and other technicals to all but guarantee winning trades,” Grossman told me.

Trading Room Alternatives

For those not ready to give the Trading Room a try, they can consider the DayTradeSPY Pick of the Day.

The Pick of the Day is “ideal” for traders who may not have the time to watch the market or stare at charts,” Grossman said. The Pick of the Day is sent to the inbox of each subscriber daily at about 9 am ET.

Subscribers are provided with an overview of the exact trades that Grossman and Stephens are looking at before each market opens.

Ultimate Trading Workshop Preps Participants for Potential Profits

Grossman and Stephens also offer their Ultimate Training Workshop to help people day trade profitably. They created videos based on a live event held a few months ago, teaching everything they thought would help day traders.

“No stone is left unturned,” Grossman said. “If you have never traded options before, this is what you need. Even if you are a seasoned trader, the nuances, tips, tricks and traps you will pick up from this series of 11 sessions, each roughly an hour and a half in length, will benefit you immensely.”

The two investment gurus share their “deep in the trenches” experience with concepts that cannot be found anywhere else, Grossman said. Key topics include setting up Schwab (formerly TD Ameritrade) Think or Swim charts to visualize patterns, identifying key indicators and strategies, “repairing trades,” money management and more, he added.

Stephens provides a deep-dive analysis that can answer many questions in the Q&A section of the Ultimate Training Workshop, Grossman said.

“It’s all there,” Grossman advised. “Of course, there may be other updated information only available through our trading room sessions, but the Ultimate Training Workshop will provide you the launch pad you need to get started day trading SPY options.”

The videos are available for at least six months, and can be viewed as often as desired during that period, Grossman said.

“Fast forward, pause and rewind,” Grossman continued. “We recommend going through them at least once completely, even if you are an experienced trader. It’s the little subtleties that can make all the difference in your trading. Take advantage of 40+ combined years of Hugh and Ahren’s market participation… master the Ultimate Training Workshop.”

Geopolitical Risk Keeps Rising

Russia suffered an attack reportedly by ISIS that killed 40 people and injured at least 100 others at a symphony in Moscow on Friday, March 22. It is the latest major incident that shows mounting geopolitical risk in the world.

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin cautioned on March 18 that the NATO’s unwillingness to allow his efforts to proceed with his “special military operation” in Ukraine could start World War III. He won re-election to a fifth six-year term just weeks after the mysterious death of political opponent the Alexei Navalny, one of Putin’s most ardent critics in Russia. Navalny seemed fine to observers when he appeared in a courtroom the day before he died.

Navalny’s burial on Friday, March 1, drew thousands of mourners. With Navalny dead, Putin had no genuine opposition to his re-election to a new six-year term as Russia’s president during the country’s March 15-17 election.

Navalny’s family claims their loved one was fatally poisoned at the arctic prison with a nerve agent on Putin’s orders.

President Putin’s surprise attack of Ukraine with Russian forces more than two years ago has caused him to send continuing waves of soldiers into battle as human sacrifices to gain land that is within the sovereign borders of its neighboring nation. The invasion shows no signs of waning.

Middle East Fallout from Oct. 7 Mayhem

The Middle East diplomacy efforts have not borne fruit as Israel seeks the return of hostages taken from their country by Hamas militants during a murderous raid on Oct. 7, as well as bring the perpetrators to justice. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) entered neighboring Gaza, but the death toll there has been high, reaching nearly 31,900 at press time, according to the latest media reports.

The war started on Oct. 7 when Hamas fighters invaded southern Israel in a precedented assault by Hamas that reportedly killed 1,163. Other barbarous acts included rapes, torture and the abduction of at least 250 others.

A week-long truce in late November led to Hamas freeing more than 100 Israeli and foreign hostages in exchange for Israel releasing about 240 Palestinian prisoners. However, talks aimed at securing the release of additional hostages have not produced results.

President Biden approved and initiated a humanitarian air drop and food distribution for beleaguered Palestinian civilians in Gaza. Roughly 130 hostages abducted on Oct. 7 by Hamas remain trapped in Gaza. But Israeli officials say about a quarter of them are dead.

Income investors worried about geopolitical risk may want to consider day trading to limit the potential impact of military conflicts due to the quick nature of such trades.

Day trading for income using three strategies of Andrews’ Pitchfork offers potential for quick profits.

Income investors may be unfamiliar with the Andrews’ Pitchfork strategies but that is no reason to avoid learning how these techniques may pay off for traders. Andrews’ Pitchfork strategies may sound a bit strange, but the three key strategies have been taught to option traders who earned income much faster than by purchasing shares in a stock, then waiting to receive a dividend for three months or a year.

Invented by Alan Andrews, the technical indicator of trendlines that bear his name can help day traders to identify income opportunities, as well as what are known as “swing” possibilities.

Andrews’ Pitchfork strategies can help to assess overall cycles that affect spot price activity. Day traders may be able to time their activity to buy during brief dips and sell profitably amid upticks.

Sherpa Says Day Trade for Income Using Three Strategies of Andrews’ Pitchfork

“The Andrews Pitchfork is one of the only predictive tools available to market technicians,” said Ahren Stephens, co-leader of the Trading Room and Pick of the Day advisory services. “It is an incredibly versatile tool that originated in the golden age of technical analysis in the early 20th century.”

Ahren Stephens co-heads of Pick of the Day and the Trading Room.

Roger Babson, an entrepreneur, market forecaster and later a politician, began studying markets at an early age. After Babson’s oldest sister, Edith, drowned during the 1880s in the Annisquam River in Gloucester, Massachusetts, he sought to understand gravity.

Thus, Babson created the Gravity Research Foundation in 1960 to give awards to essays on gravity-related topics. Generally, Andrews’ Pitchfork is based on the work of Sir Isaac Newton. The famed Newtonian law that every action has an equal and opposite reaction came into play to create Andrews’ Pitchfork to help plot trend lines on financial charts, rather than hand-draw Action Reaction sets, Stephens explained.

Day Trading for Income Using Three Strategies of Andrews’ Pitchfork: Kennedy Clan

During the Depression period of the late 1920s and early 1930s, Andrews managed money for Joseph Kennedy, a prominent political family patriarch, producing more than $450 million in the stock market crash of 1929. Today, that $450 million would be worth billions of dollars, Stephens continued.

Andrews ended up working at the University of Miami and developed the Action Reaction course. When he launched his course at the university, the line of students seeking to take it was so long it wrapped around the block.

Day Trading for Income Using Three Strategies of Andrews’ Pitchfork: SPY Secrets

“Let’s make trading simple by implementing the three secrets of Andrew’s Pitchfork to help you generate income and gains on a regular basis,” Stephens said. “In our Trading Room service, we have two master sherpa traders leading their customers to the top of the mountain by helping them lock in their profits regularly. By adding some simple secrets of Dr. Alan Andrews, the famed market technician and trader, you can find your way on the road to trading for income.”

The three secrets of using Andrews’ Median Line, previously called the Normal Line by Babson, were unveiled by Stephens during his presentation at the Money Show/Traders Expo event in Las Vegas last February. Stephens told me the audience seemed especially attentive.

The word pivot also is integral in understanding the first secret of the Andrews’ Pitchfork, Stephens said. The following description should be illuminating.

By identifying the major pivots on that chart, a trader can find possible turning points in the future by using the Andrews’ Pitchfork tool, Stephens said. He and senior partner Hugh Grossman avoid complication by typically trading only options in the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY), a fund that seeks to provide investment results that correspond to the price and yield performance of the S&P 500 Index.

Hugh Grossman leads DayTradeSpy’s Trading Room.

The S&P 500 Index tracks a diversified group of large-cap U.S. stocks across all 11 Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) sectors. CICS also has 25 industry groups, 74 industries and 163 sub-industries into which the S&P uses to categorize all major public companies.

Day Trading for Income Using Three Strategies of Andrews’ Pitchfork: Pivots

If an investor can think of ABC, the person can find the pivots that will allow one to forecast the probable path of the price of any stock or commodity, explained Stephens, who added that the technique is used when he instructs subscribers in the Trading Room advisory service.

“Many people in our Trading Room want to know how we come up with our amazing predictions in our crystal ball,” Stephens told me. “And the answer is we use tools that can find the probable path of the price.”

For starters, define the major highs and lows on higher time frames, Stephens said. By examining the pivots and market structure on higher timeframes, a trader can significantly improve his or her outlook, he continued.

Look at the time frame every day when first checking charts, Stephens said. Then identify the major trend and look for income-producing trades, whether short-term or long-term. The daily time frame is where most of the larger traders and institutions trade for the longer term. For investors buying stocks and wanting to hold, this is a great place to start, he added.

Day Trading for Income Using Three Strategies of Andrews’ Pitchfork: Secret 2 

Andrews’ Pitchfork Secret #2 is to trade in the direction of the trend for enhanced profitability. That may sound easy, but it requires identifying a trend and knowing when to buy or sell.

“The old axiom, ‘the trend is your friend,’ is tried and true,” Stephens said. “We also like to think of the Andrews’ Pitchfork as your friend because it is one of the very few predictive tools using math and physics that can help you both enter and exit trades in the trend’s direction, as well as find possible turning points as they happen if you’re already in a trade.”

Plus, keep in mind, the trend is your friend “until it ends,” Stephens continued. Andrews’ Pitchfork helps to find starting and ending points.  For greater returns from trades, follow a trend-following approach in the markets, he added.

“Knowing the direction of the trend will help you understand and correctly forecast and trade the probable path of the price,” Stephens said. “Are we making higher highs and higher lows? Are we making lower highs and lower lows?

“By identifying and marking the correct larger timeframe direction, specifically the Daily and 240-minute trend direction, you are able to catch the momentum of larger traders and institutions and have the wind at your back to help push you to greater profits.”

Day Trading for Income Using Three Strategies of Andrews’ Pitchfork: Secret 3

Andrews Pitchfork Secret #3 is to enter at the test and retest to gain the best entry, but exit at extremes, Stephens advised. To maximize gains, the goal is to let winning trades run, but keep losses small, Stephens advised.

“To utilize the best entries, you need to draw a fork that can contain the price,” Stephens said. “After a test of a median line, whether it’s the lower parallel, the upper parallel, or the middle median line, you need to determine if the price is going to hold that area and continue running in the trend.”

When the price continues in the trend, a trader can maximize profits by following the price to the next median line on the chart, Stephens said.

“This is where the test and retest of the Median Line comes in,” Stephens explained. “When the price hits a level of support and rises, this is a test. When the price hits the area again, this is a retest.”

The same principle applies with a diagonal line. When the price tests and retests, that indicates a chance to board a virtual “elevator to profits,” Stephens counseled.

By exiting at price extremes, a trader can leverage the laws of physics and market structure to maximize gains and minimize your losses, Stephens said.

Day Trading for Income Using Three Strategies of Andrews’ Pitchfork: Elevator Ride

“Think of it this way,” Stephens opined. “When you are wandering around the mall, eventually you have seen everything you want to see and want to go to the next level. You need an elevator to get you to the next floor.”

When investing in the markets, the catalyst could be a news event, a geopolitical event, an earnings release, etc., Stephens continued.

“You need this to move the price from level 1 to level 2,” Stephens told me. “It is the same thing with the Andrews’ Pitchfork as well. When you have found a catalyst and an entry on a retest of the fork, the elevator will take you to the next level of profits.”

Day Trading for Income Using Three Strategies of Andrews’ Pitchfork: Workshop

Grossman, who launched DayTradeSpy’s Trading Room, teams up with Stephens to offer their Ultimate Training Workshop to help people day trade profitably. They created a set of training videos based on a live event held a few months ago, teaching everything they thought would help day traders.

“No stone is left unturned,” Grossman said. “If you have never traded options before, this is what you need. Even if you are a seasoned trader, the nuances, tips, tricks and traps you will pick up from this series of 11 sessions, each roughly an hour and a half in length, will benefit you immensely.”

The two investment gurus share “deep in the trenches” experience with concepts that cannot be found anywhere else, Grossman said. Topics include setting up Schwab (formerly TD Ameritrade) Think or Swim charts to visualize patterns, identifying key indicators and strategies, “repairing trades,” money management and more, he added.

Day Trading for Income Using Three Strategies of Andrews’ Pitchfork: Q&A

Stephens provides a deep-dive analysis that can answer many questions in the Q&A section of the Ultimate Training Workshop, Grossman said.

“It’s all there,” Grossman advised. “Of course, there may be other updated information only available through our trading room sessions, but the Ultimate Training Workshop will provide you the launch pad you need to get started day trading SPY options.”

The videos are available for at least six months, and they can be viewed as often as desired during that time period, Grossman said. Take advantage of 40+ combined years of market participation by signing up for the UltimateTraining Workshop,” he added.

“Fast forward, pause and rewind,” Grossman continued. “We recommend going through them at least once completely, even if you are an experienced trader.”

Day Trading for Income Using Three Strategies of Andrews’ Pitchfork: Scalping

The duo also use a scalping strategy that involves buying ‘at the money’ options, Grossman told me.

“I like to buy 30 to 100 contracts, investing up to $20,000 per trade, depending on expiration dates,” Grossman said. “While it sounds like a high-risk trade, and it could be, by using our proven indicators, we minimize the risk. We make our gains quickly and, of course, see a prompt return of our capital in the process.

“I generally earn $500 to $1,000 on such trades. Repeating the process delivers several thousand dollars before most of corporate America takes its first coffee break.”

Mounting Geopolitical Risk

Geopolitical risk is mounting amid escalating wars and threats worldwide.  Such risks may develop further interest in day trading to avoid longer-term investments that can backfire.

Under the direction of President Joe Biden, America’s Department of Defense (DoD) unexpectedly announced on Tuesday, March 12, that it would give up to $300 million in additional military aid to Ukraine. The assistance comes at a critical time during Russia’s invasion of Ukraine that began in February 2021, as waning supplies of military equipment forced Ukrainian soldiers to retreat from key places that they had retaken from the aggressors during its counteroffensive in the past year.

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a Washington-based think-tank, estimated that Russia’s artillery was firing at five times the rate of Ukraine’s rapidly shrinking capacity to fire back at the attackers.

With a lack of replacement funds available to replenish DoD inventories, the Biden administration had paused Presidential Drawdown Authority (PDA) packages since December 2023. The DoD subsequently identified contract savings from previously appropriated supplemental funding that can be used to replace its equipment stocks. The move offers a short-term stop gap, but it is “nowhere near enough” to meet Ukraine’s battlefield needs, according to the DoD.

“Without supplemental funding, DoD will remain hard-pressed to meet Ukraine’s capability requirements at a time when Russia is pressing its attacks against Ukrainian forces and cities,” the DoD added.

New Supplies for Ukraine

The equipment worth up to $300 million encompassed in this announcement include:

  • Stinger anti-aircraft missiles;
  • Additional ammunition for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS);
  • 155mm artillery rounds, including High Explosive and Dual Purpose Improved Cluster Munitions rounds;
  • 105mm artillery rounds;
  • AT-4 anti-armor systems;
  • Additional rounds of small arms ammunition;
  • Demolitions munitions for obstacle clearing; and
  • Spare parts, maintenance and other ancillary equipment.

“U.S. leadership is essential to sustaining the historic efforts of some 50 allies and partners from around the globe that have committed more than $87 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since Russia launched its unprovoked, full-scale invasion in February 2022 – a war of choice that continues to undermine global security and stability,” according to the DoD. “Security assistance for Ukraine remains a smart investment in our national security. It deters potential aggression elsewhere in the world, while strengthening our defense industrial base and creating highly skilled jobs for the American people.”

U.S. Congressional leaders have been not found a compromise that would protect America’s southern border to win support from House Republicans to provide fresh funding of $95.3 billion mainly for Ukraine and Israel. The bi-partisan bill previously passed the U.S. Senate.

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) has stated his top priorities are to secure the southern border of the United States and to fund the operation of the U.S. government. Extra time to seek a solution was gained last week with passage of short-term funding to avoid a default on the country’s debt.

Sweden Strengthens NATO as 32nd Member

With the addition of Sweden to NATO on May 7, the organization now has 32 member nations. The addition makes the alliance more united, determined and dynamic than ever, President Biden said.

“NATO will continue to stand for freedom and democracy for generations to come,” President Biden said in a statement. “I look forward to hosting all 32 Allies for the 75th Anniversary NATO Summit this summer in Washington, D.C.”

President Putin’s surprise attack of Ukraine with Russian forces more than two years ago has caused him to send continuing waves of soldiers into battle as human sacrifices to gain land that is within the sovereign borders of its neighboring nation. The invasion, which President Putin still calls a “special military operation,” shows no signs of waning. Russian political opposition leader Alexei Navalny was imprisoned by Putin and transferred to an Artic prison where he died suddenly on Feb. 16 under mysterious circumstances after appearing in good health at a court hearing the day before.

Navalny’s burial on Friday, March 1, drew thousands of mourners. With Navalny dead, Putin has no opposition to becoming elected to a new term has Russia’s president during its election taking place this weekend.

Navalny’s family claims their loved one was fatally poisoned at the arctic prison with a nerve agent on Putin’s orders.

Geopolitical Risk Mounts in the Middle East

The Middle East remains a powder keg with Hamas militants and the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) engaged in a war that reportedly has led to more than 31,100 deaths in Gaza alone. The war began on Oct. 7 when Hamas fighters invaded southern Israel in a murderous assault that reportedly killed 1,163. Other barbarous acts included rapes, torture and the abduction of at least 250 others.

Israel responded with a military assault on the Gaza Strip to destroy tunnels used in attacks against its civilians and to pursue the perpetrators of the Oct. 7 butchery. IDF officials report that hundreds of its soldiers have been killed in Gaza during its military response.

A week-long truce in late November led to Hamas freeing more than 100 Israeli and foreign hostages in exchange for Israel releasing about 240 Palestinian prisoners. However, talks aimed at securing the release of additional hostages have not produced results.

President Biden recently approved and initiated a humanitarian air drop of relief supplies and plans to build a temporary port to provide additional aid for Palestinians in Gaza. Roughly 130 hostages abducted on Oct. 7 by Hamas remain trapped there, but Israeli officials say about a quarter of them are believed to be dead.

Day trading strategies for income feature Fibonacci numbers that can be used to pursue profits with the help of seasoned investment guides.

The day trading strategies for income include Fibonacci numbers that can be used to help make investment decisions in a three-step process. Successful day trading for income starts with a daily routine that is conducive to investing profitably.

The process can differ for each investor, but should include the two time-tested tools of preparation and guidance. But investors also need to guard against letting emotions interfere with the process.

For example, a City Index survey between November 23 and December 4, 2023, queried 3,000 participants and found the traders who responded to the questions sometimes let emotions cause them to become over-confident, revealing a need to integrate robust risk management practices and a disciplined approach in trading strategies. Whatever one’s level of confidence, effective risk management is pivotal for safeguarding financial capital amid market uncertainties, the survey found.

Day Trading Strategies for Income Feature Fibonacci Numbers: Retracement Lines

Day-trading sherpa Ahren Stephens, co-leader of the Trading Room advisory service, is available to help those who seek assistance. Stephens told attendees at the recent Las Vegas MoneyShow that they should create a daily routine to put them in a position to succeed.

Ahren Stephens co-heads of Pick of the Day and the Trading Room.

The Fibonacci retracement lines can be used in trend-trading strategies. If a retracement occurs within a trend, the Fibonacci levels can be used to put a trade in the direction of the underlying trend. The reasoning is that a heightened chance exists that a security’s price will rise from the Fibonacci level back in the direction of an initial trend.

Fibonacci levels can be used if a trader aims to buy a particular security but missed out on a recent uptrend. In such instances, a trader can wait for a pullback. Fibonacci ratios such as 61.8%, 38.2% and 23.6% can be plotted on a chart for traders to identify possible retracement levels and enter new trading positions.

Day Trading Strategies for Income Feature Fibonacci Numbers: Daily Routine

As co-leader of the Trading Room advisory service, Stephens uses Fibonacci strategies regularly. He told attendees at the recent Las Vegas MoneyShow that they could follow an ABCD pattern in an intraday chart pattern to show when a stock spikes, retreats, then ascends to break out at a new high of the day. A letter from the ABCD sequence is identified with each of the four major price movements, he explained.

The A is associated with a morning rally to new high. The B is for an intraday retreat and consolidation, with the C associated with a rise and break out through the morning’s high. The D reflects a rally to a new high.

The ABCD legs are usually either identical in size or nearly identical in size, Stephens told me. Fibonacci retracements and extensions are used to measure these areas and find extension points, he explained.

Day Trading Strategies for Income Feature Fibonacci Numbers: Know Your Pivots

Traders can use Fibonacci retracement levels, extensions, Fans and arcs, Stephens commented. In the Trading Room, where price levels are analyzed in daily timeframes, the simple-to-understand ABCD pattern helps in calculating retracements and extensions to highlight price targets.

“When making observations of current price action, we identify support, resistance and Fibonacci levels when coming up with our Pick of the Day service, which is great for traders who don’t have a lot of time to analyze charts,” Stephens said. “We also use these levels from time to time in our Inner Circle subscription, where we provide support and resistance levels before the market opens and identify retracement and extension targets.

“You have to define the major highs and lows on higher time frames to predict where the markets may go, using basic patterns such as the ABCD pattern. Fibonacci is a term derived from a mathematical sequence that starts with 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, and so on. It was named after the famous Italian mathematician Leonardo of Pisa. He introduced it to the Western world in his 1202 book ‘Liber Abaci’.”

Day Trading Strategies for Income Feature Fibonacci Numbers: Know Your Ratios

“By using the correct Fibonacci ratios, you can identify where the Market Makers, Whales, and institutions are buying or selling, and ride on their backs,” Stephens said. “We like to use the 38.2%, 50%, 61.8%, 78.6%, and the extensions of 127.2%, 161.8%, and 200% or double the range.

“Many traders get too involved in choosing the right Fibonacci ratios. Using the major Fibonacci ratios will put you in the same field as the bigger traders.”

Day Trading Strategies for Income Feature Fibonacci Numbers: Enter at Retracements

“By identifying clear reversal points, it is possible to catch a trade all the way to an extension point,” Stephens said. “By identifying clear retracement areas in a wave, we are able to take a trade all the way up to an extension many times and capture most of a move.

“For example, on a recent chart, we identified a Fibonacci retracement area near $495.36, and we were able to take the trade well up into the $510 area to complete an up wave ABCD pattern. Now, some may have sold earlier than that, but by finding these levels, we can ride on the backs of larger traders as well as trade in the direction of the major trend.”

Day Trading Strategies Include Fibonacci Number: Ultimate Trading Workshop

Senior partner Hugh Grossman teams up with Stephens to offer their Ultimate Training Workshop about how to day trade successfully. They created a set of training videos based on a live event held a few months ago, teaching everything they thought would help day traders.

Hugh Grossman is senior partner in DayTradeSpy’s Trading Room.

“No stone is left unturned,” Grossman said. “If you have never traded options before, this is what you need. Even if you are a seasoned trader, the nuances, tips, tricks and traps you will pick up from this series of 11 sessions, each roughly an hour and a half in length, will benefit you immensely.”

The two investment gurus share their “deep in the trenches” experience with concepts that cannot be found anywhere else, Grossman said. Key topics include setting up Schwab (formerly TD Ameritrade) Think or Swim charts to visualize patterns, identifying key indicators and strategies, “repairing trades,” money management and more, he added.

Stephens provides a deep-dive analysis can answer many questions in the Q&A section, Grossman said.

“It’s all there,” Grossman told me. “Of course, there may be other updated information only available through our trading room sessions, but the Ultimate Training Workshop will provide you the launch pad you need to get started day trading SPY options.”

The videos are available for at least six months and they can be viewed as often as desired, Grossman said.

“Fast forward, pause and rewind,” Grossman continued. “We recommend going through them at least once completely, even if you are an experienced trader. It’s the little subtleties that can make all the difference in your trading. Take advantage of 40+ combined years of Hugh and Ahren’s market participation… master the UltimateTraining Workshop.”

Scalping Strategy Involves Buying ‘at the Money’ Calls

The duo also uses a scalping strategy that involves buying ‘at the money’ options for the best balance of price and delta, Grossman told me.

“I like to buy 30 to 100 contracts, investing up to $20,000 per trade, depending on expiration dates,” Grossman said. “While it sounds like a high-risk trade, and it could be, by using our proven indicators, we minimize the risk. We make our gains quickly, and of course, see a prompt return of our capital in the process.

“I generally earn $500 to $1,000 on such trades. Repeating the process delivers several thousand dollars before most of corporate America takes its first coffee break.”

Further out expirations, of three to six days, offer a measure of stability and security, Grossman said. They also give traders high liquidity, he added.

Rocketing Geopolitical Risk

Geopolitical risk is mounting amid worsening wars. The threat may spur interest in day trading to avoid the risk from buying and holding for the long haul during turbulent times.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on March 7 to intensify drills to prepare for war, the country’s state-run media reported, as U.S. and South Korean forces conducted a joint military exercise. Kim, accompanied by high-ranking defense officials at a military base in the western region of North Korea, oversaw drills that were little different from actual war, the Korean Central News Agency reported.

With Congress in a stalemate about providing foreign aid, Ukraine is running low on ammunition and other military equipment needed to repel intensified attacks by Russian forces that invaded the neighboring nation in February 2022. U.S. Congressional leaders have been not found a compromise that would protect America’s southern border to win support from House Republicans to provide fresh funding of $95.3 billion mainly for Ukraine and Israel.

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) has stated his top priorities are to secure the southern border of the United States and to fund the operation of the U.S. government. The latter issue received a reprieve last week with passage of a continuing resolution to avoid a default on the country’s debt.

Poisoning Suspected as Cause of Navalny’s Death

Ukraine’s forces have needed to pull back from strategically important places within its sovereign borders in the face of Russia’s superior manpower and military supplies. The invasion, which Russia’s President Vladimir Putin still calls a “special military operation” more than two years later, has entered its third year and shows no signs of waning. Political opposition leader Alexei Navalny was imprisoned by Putin and transferred to an Artic prison where he died suddenly on Feb. 16 under mysterious circumstances after appearing in good health at a court hearing the previous day.

After initially refusing to release Navalny’s body to his mother for a funeral, Putin relented days later once enough time had passed to prevent the detection of any traces of poison. The burial, held on Friday, March 1, attracted thousands of mourners. Despite risking arrest by Russian authorities, mourners chanted anti-Putin slogans as they paid final respects to Navalny, who was serving a 19-year prison term for what Westerners would describe as publicly offering alternative views about Russia’s future direction.

Instead, Navalny was convicted of “extremism” after he returned to the country following his survival of poisoning in August 2020 reportedly carried out under the direction of Putin, a former KGB agent. Navalny’s family claims their loved one was fatally poisoned at the arctic prison with a nerve agent on Putin’s orders.

Geopolitical Risk Rises in the Middle East

Meanwhile, the Middle East remains combustible with Hamas militants and the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) battling in a war that reportedly has led to more than 30,800 deaths in Gaza alone. The war began on Oct. 7 when Hamas fighters invaded southern Israel in a murderous assault that reportedly killed 1,163. Other barbarous acts included rapes, torture and the abduction of at least 250 others.

Israel responded with a military assault on the Gaza Strip to destroy tunnels used in attacks against its civilians and to pursue the perpetrators of the Oct. 7 butchery. IDF officials report that at least 242 of its soldiers have been killed in Gaza during its military response.

A week-long truce in late November led to Hamas freeing more than 100 Israeli and foreign hostages in exchange for Israel releasing about 240 Palestinian prisoners. However, talks aimed at securing the release of additional hostages have not produced tangible results.

President Biden approved and initiated a humanitarian airdrop of relief supplies for beleaguered Palestinian civilians in Gaza. Roughly 130 hostages abducted on Oct. 7 by Hamas remain trapped in Gaza. However, Israeli officials say about a quarter of them are dead.

Day trading for income features three key steps used successfully by experienced traders.

Successful day trading for income ideally begins with a daily routine that is conducive to investing successfully. The process may vary for each investor, but preparation and guidance are two time-tested tools that potentially can help to produce potent profits.

But beware of emotions interfering with the process. A City Index survey between November 23 and December 4, 2023, queried 3,000 participants and found the traders who responded to the questions sometimes let emotions caused them to become over-confident, revealing a need to integrate robust risk management practices and a disciplined approach in trading strategies. Whatever one’s level of confidence, effective risk management is essential for safeguarding financial capital amid market uncertainties, the survey found.

Day Trading for Income Features Three Key Steps: Daily Routine

Day-trading sherpas are available to help those who seek assistance. One of them is Ahren Stephens, co-leader of the Trading Room advisory service, who told attendees at the recent Las Vegas MoneyShow that they should create a daily routine to put them in a position to succeed.

By using his own advice, Stephens correctly advised his Trading Room subscribers to expect NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) to report strong earnings on Wednesday, Feb. 21. Stephens advised them to wait for the earnings announcement after the market’s close that day with the plan to profit the next morning if the company beats analysts’ estimates, as he forecast.

“We need to think quickly, logically and without emotion in an effort to buy and sell quickly and to be on our toes at a moment’s notice,” Stephens said. “Because of this fast execution and response time, sometimes it is possible that our emotions get involved in our trading setups. For me, I would say that occasionally emotions can play a role in our trading decisions.”

Ahren Stephens co-heads Trading Room and Pick of the Day.

Stephens and his partner Hugh Grossman, who originally launched the Trading Room advisory service, lead their subscribers on a minute-by-minute basis each morning that the market is open.  They specialize in quick trading between 9:20 to 10:30 am ET, serving as co-hosts for the Trading Room, a virtual meeting where training and trading occur in a live, real-time market environment.

The duo typically avoids complications by only trading options in the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY), a fund that seeks to provide investment results that correspond to the price and yield performance of the S&P 500 Index. That index tracks a diversified group of large-cap U.S. stocks across all 11 Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) sectors. CICS also has 25 industry groups, 74 industries and 163 sub-industries that the S&P uses to categorize all major public companies.

Trading for Income Features Three Key Steps: Patience Is a Virtue

For example, the pair recommended $498 calls in SPY on Tuesday, Feb. 20, that were due to expire on Friday, Feb. 23. It turned out that they did not fill the same day but dropped in value on fears of the upcoming Fed meeting minutes release on Wednesday, Feb. 21. Patience was needed to profit.

“Some traders let their emotions rule,” Grossman continued.

Despite encouragement of the stock and option sherpas for their subscribers to hold on to the call position through the release of computer chip maker Nvidia’s earnings scheduled for shortly after the market’s close on Wednesday, some investors dumped their calls for a loss rather than see if the technology stock reported strong results to turn the SPY calls profitable, Grossman said. Nvidia’s earnings, as the pair predicted, were “very positive,” and gapped SPY up about 6 points the following morning, he added.

“Those who detached themselves emotionally scored immensely,” Grossman told me.

Hugh Grossman is the senior partner in Trading Room and Pick of the Day.

The duo also instructed the subscribers to buy the Nvidia calls with an $800 strike price as a possible play on positive earnings. That trade recommendation proved prescient with Nvidia’s stock topping $803 on Friday, Feb. 23. The Nvidia call options went from a low of $2.11 on Thursday, Feb. 22, to a high of $25.00 the next day, Stephens said.

Trading for Income Features Three Key Steps: Stick to a Trading Plan

A seasoned stock market guide who also has helped investors profit from Nvidia is Mark Skousen, PhD, who recommended the high-flying technology stock in his Fast Money Alert trading service with his partner Jim Woods.


Mark Skousen, co-head of Fast Money Alert and Ben Franklin scion, talks to Paul Dykewicz.

Nvidia, the darling of the red-hot artificial intelligence (AI) sector, keeps climbing. The Goldman Sachs investment bank recently raised its price target on Nvidia to $800 a share. With the stock surging after its potent earnings report, the share price is not far from achieving that mark.

“We believe Nvidia will remain as the industry gold standard for the foreseeable future, given its robust hardware and software offerings and, importantly, the pace at which it continues to innovate,” a Goldman Sachs analyst wrote in a recent research note.

Day Trading for Income Features Three Key Steps: Maintain Discipline

Stephens explained to those attending his presentation at the MoneyShow that staying disciplined when trading helps to control the emotions of fear and greed. He urged investors to follow a trading plan, to use correct capital management techniques and to take breaks after huge wins or an unexpected loss.

“When news items come out and trades are going in your favor, as well as when you have to wait out a news event that isn’t going in your favor, that is when you need to exercise either quick exits or long-term patience,” Stephens said.

Day Trading for Income Features Three Key Steps: Set Realistic Goals

The value of setting realistic goals and expectations is exhibited when Grossman and Stephens give instruction to their Pick of the Day subscribers who participate in a group that connects remotely to watch and to hear from the seasoned traders who offer step-by-step guidance. They almost always stick to trading SPY options.

  1. The duo determines the short-term support and resistance on a five-minute chart.
  2. At the first five-minute “candle” on the chart that closes outside of either that support or resistance, it signals the direction in which the duo will buy. Call options are designed to profit when the market goes up, while put options would rise when the market falls.
  3. The duo typically puts an option up for sale to attain a 6% profit target. They then wait and monitor the market for their next move.
  4. If the pair does not see a breakout by about 10:15 a.m., then there might not be a Pick of the Day trade recommendation until the following day. The goal is to gain at least a 6% profit, if any trade is recommended.

Geopolitical Risk Rises

Ukraine is running low on ammunition and other military equipment to repel intensified attacks by Russian forces who invaded the neighboring nation in February 2022. Congressional leaders have been unable to compromise on a plan to protect the U.S. southern border to win support from House Republicans to provide additional funding of $95.3 billion to Ukraine and Israel. House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) has said that his top priorities are to secure the southern border of the United States and to fund the operation of the U.S. government that staved off a default on its debt this week with passage of a continuing resolution.

However, Ukraine’s forces have needed to pull back from strategically important places within its sovereign borders in the face of Russia’s superior manpower and military supplies. The invasion, which Russia’s President Vladimir Putin calls a “special military operation,” recently entered its third year. Putin eliminated political opposition leader Alexei Navalny as a threat to his reign by turning him into a political prisoner and moving him to an Artic prison where he died suddenly on Feb. 16 after appearing in good health at a court hearing the previous day.

After initially refusing to release Navalny’s body to his mother for a funeral, Putin relented days later once any traces of poison could not be detected. The burial was held on Friday, March 1, as thousands of defiant mourners gathered. Despite risking arrest by Russian authorities, mourners chanted anti-Putin slogans as they paid final respects to Navalny, who was serving a 19-year prison term for what Westerners would describe as publicly offering alternative views about Russia’s future direction.

Instead, Navalny was convicted of “extremism” after he returned to the country following his survival of poisoning in August 2020 reportedly carried out under the direction of Putin, a former KGB agent. Navalny’s family claims their loved one was fatally poisoned at the arctic prison with a nerve agent on Putin’s orders.

Geopolitical Risk Mounts in the Middle East

Meanwhile, the Middle East remains a powder keg with Hamas militants and the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) battling in a war that reportedly has led to more than 30,000 deaths in Gaza alone. The war began on Oct. 7 when Hamas sent fighters into southern Israel in a murderous assault that reportedly killed 1,163 people and included rapes, torture and the abduction of at least 250 others.

Israel responded with a military assault on the Gaza Strip to destroy tunnels used in attacks against its civilian and to pursue the perpetrators of the Oct. 7 butchery. IDF officials report that at least 242 of its soldiers have been killed in Gaza during its military response.

A week-long truce in late November led to Hamas freeing more than 100 Israeli and foreign hostages in exchange for Israel releasing about 240 Palestinian prisoners. However, talks aimed at securing the release of additional hostages have not led to any tangible results yet.

President Biden announced he plans to undertake a humanitarian air drop of relief supplies for the beleaguered Palestinian civilians in Gaza. In addition, roughly 130 hostages abducted on Oct. 7 by Hamas remain trapped in Gaza. However, Israeli officials say about a quarter of them are dead.

Income investors overcome emotions to profit through stock and option trading by following a three-step process.

Income investors can overcome emotions to profit by taking the advice of seasoned market professionals who can navigate through trading minefields. The need for guidance is real, according to a recent survey that found differences in how people in various age groups made investment choices.

The survey by City Index took place between November 23 and December 4, 2023, to identify ways emotions affect traders. The survey included 3,000 participants and asked three key questions to let the respondents rate how much their emotions affected trading decisions.

While traders vary in their confidence levels, the reality is that they can lose money. This risk highlights the danger of over-relying on personal confidence, revealing a need to integrate robust risk management practices and a disciplined approach into trading strategies, the survey found. Regardless of confidence, effective risk management is essential for safeguarding financial capital amid market threats.

Income Investors Overcome Emotions to Profit: Day Trading Sherpas

Two day-trading sherpas recently helped their subscribers profit handsomely by guiding them through a volatile market. They correctly expected NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) to report strong earnings earlier this week when the market was in need of a catalyst to regain its bullish ways.

Those who trade in small timeframes include people who day-trade. They can stay connected to the market on a minute-by-minute basis in advisory services that specialize in quick trading, said Ahren Stephens, co-leader of the aptly named Trading Room. Every morning, 9:20 to 10:30 am ET, Stephens and his partner Hugh Grossman host the Trading Room, a virtual meeting where training and trading converge in a live, real-time market environment.

“We need to think quickly, logically and without emotion in an effort to buy and sell quickly and to be on our toes at a moment’s notice,” Stephens said. “Because of this fast execution and response time, sometimes it is possible that our emotions get involved in our trading setups. For me, I would say that occasionally emotions can play a role in our trading decisions.

“When news items come out and trades are going in your favor, as well as when you have to wait out a news event that isn’t going in your favor, that is when you need to exercise either quick exits or long-term patience.”

Stephens spoke this week to investors about day trading at the Las Vegas MoneyShow. He explained that overcoming emotions involve “conquering fear and greed.” The keys are to follow a trading plan, to use correct capital management techniques and to take breaks after huge wins or an unexpected loss.

Income Investors Overcome Emotions to Profit: Day Trading 

Trading is one of the few professions where you must learn to take a loss from time to time, Stephens opined. It is part of the process, he added.

Ahren Stephens co-heads Trading Room and Pick of the Day.

“The average person who comes to trading tends to think of trading in terms of normal rules of life,” Stephens said. “If you work harder at something, you tend to get rewarded with bonuses, with promotions, or with a greater sense of purpose and accomplishment. This is not true in trading.

“People who work harder in trading often get burned out, work longer hours, or make trading mistakes because they are chasing the one that got away,” Stephens said. “If you tend to think of trading in terms of a similarity to fishing, that would be a better mindset to have. Every day you come to the ocean: There are whales – the Market Makers, the Sharks – Institutional Traders, and the Swordfish, Mackerel, and Salmon – the Retail Traders. This is the one place in the world where the longer you last, the higher in the food chain you can go. We as traders are also The Fisherman.

“The Fisherman comes out every day with his net, hoping to catch a fish. Some days you go home with few fish, some days one fish, some days with many fish, but at the end of the day, you came to the ocean and tried to catch a fish to feed your family.”

Stephens said he is in the camp where he tends to cut losses immediately. If a trade goes against him, he exits it quickly and looks for ways to learn how to trade better in the future.

Stephens partners with seasoned trader Hugh Grossman to lead the Pick of the Day advisory service that focuses on assisting day traders who are unable or unwilling to do premarket analysis. The Pick of the Day is emailed to subscribers around 9:15 a.m., ET daily, on days the market is open. They also team up to co-head the Trading Room.

Income Investors Overcome Emotions to Profit: Seasoned Day Trader’s View

Grossman, who originally launched the Trading Room, responded that we may know what to do intellectually but trading will always be an emotional activity, nearly impossible to fully detach ourselves as we watch equity prices fluctuate with market forces.

Hugh Grossman co-heads DayTradeSpy’s Pick of the Day and Trading Room.

In talking to new traders, most are definitely always affected by emotion, Grossman said. But those who can transition to reducing their emotional input tend to become better traders, he added.

Income Investors Overcome Emotions to Profit: Retirement Expert’s View

It is not surprising that people report emotions are more involved in their investment decisions as they age, said Bob Carlson, a former pension fund chairman who heads the Retirement Watch investment newsletter.

“I suspect that’s primarily because they are more self-aware,” Carlson continued. “It is likely that younger people don’t realize how much emotions are motivating their decisions. They follow what they see online or what they hear friends are doing and believe they’re acting thoughtfully. Only after they are a little older do they realize emotions were the primary motivation.”

Carlson counseled that he suspects the percentage of decisions motivated by emotion are higher than reported in the survey. The survey is based on self-reporting, not an independent analysis.

“I think it’s likely many people don’t realize how often emotions influence their investment decisions,” Carlson commented. “Also, most people don’t carefully record their investment decisions and why they made them. That makes memory an important part of the survey’s results.”

Bob Carlson, head of Retirement Watch, talks to Paul Dykewicz.

Carlson expressed surprise that recognition of emotions in investing was as high as the survey showed. Most people don’t want to recognize that financial decisions were based on emotions, he added.

“The survey shows the importance of having a process in place for making investment decisions and following the process so that the role of emotions in investing is minimized,” Carlson concluded.

Income Investors Overcome Emotions to Profit: Survey Results

The survey revealed that more than one third of traders, or 35.3%, find that emotions influence their trading decisions on a moderate basis, becoming the most common response among all investors surveyed. Similarly, three in 10 traders, or 33.3%, reported that emotions play a role in some of their trading decisions, but not frequently.

One in five traders, or 20.2%, indicated that emotions frequently impact their trading decisions and are aware of their influence. However, almost three in every 100 survey participants, or 2.6%, reported that their trading decisions are consistently influenced by emotions, with it rated as a “significant factor in their approach.

The age group most likely to have their trading decisions consistently influenced by emotions were 41–60-year-olds, with this sentiment selected by 35.4% of that cohort. In comparison, just 10.1% of 18-24-year-olds surveyed considered emotions to be a significant factor in their trading decisions.

Income Investors Overcome Emotions to Profit: First Question

The first question of the survey asked, “How often do emotions influence your decisions?”

James Roy, a neuro specialist at Brainworks Neurotherapy, commented on the psychology of trading and how negative emotions can influence the decision-making of traders:

“Market participants frequently grapple with the repercussions of negative emotions, such as fear and greed,” Roy said. “These emotions can distort rational decision-making by activating the amygdala, prompting impulsive actions and clouding judgement during periods of market volatility. The evolutionary roots of these emotional responses, tied to survival instincts, contribute to the challenges traders face in using a disciplined and strategic approach.”

Recognizing and controlling these emotional triggers is imperative for traders seeking to navigate financial markets. Roy continued. Strategies can help mitigate the impact of negative emotions, fostering a more rational and deliberate decision-making process, he continued.

Acknowledging the psychological nuances inherent in trading lets individuals cultivate a resilient mindset in pursuit of sustained success, Roy concluded.

Income Investors Overcome Emotions to Profit: Second Question

The second question addressed, “How do you react to losses in trading?”

Most traders feel frustration and disappointment as a reaction to trading losses, with almost one in three, or 31.6%, reporting this emotion. However, they do try and learn from experience. One in five respondents, or 20%, will re-evaluate and adjust their trading strategy to avoid similar losses in the future, the survey found.

Fewer than one in 10 respondents, or 9.9%, will hold and wait for recovery when facing losses, hoping for a market reversal. Nearly as many traders, or 7.1%, responded that they will seek external advice or opinions from peers, mentors, or financial experts to gain insights on how to handle losses.

In attempting to recover losses quickly, almost one in 25 traders, or 3.9%, react to losses by increasing their risk-taking to increase gains, the survey reported. The age group most likely to engage in risk-taking was those aged 61 and above, with 31.4% saying they do so to recover losses quickly.

“I don’t take to losing easily anymore,” Grossman said. “I learn to re-evaluate and adjust strategy to avoid making the same mistakes as in the past. In learning from your errors, I tend to make less of them, leaving me with only the strategies that make me money.”

Income Investors Overcome Emotions to Profit: Third Question

The third question inquired, “How confident do you feel when making trading decisions?

The research highlighted that most traders feel slightly confident when making investment decisions, reporting a noticeable level of uncertainty. This sentiment was felt by more than one-third of respondents, or 34.4%, along with one in three feeling moderately confident in their trading decisions but recognizing room for improvement.

An equal number of 228 respondents expressed feeling either very uncertain and not confident at all in their trading decisions, or feeling very confident in their trading decisions and believing in their ability to make sound choices consistently. Fewer than one in 10 traders, 9.6%, reported feeling either not confident at all or very confident in their trading decisions, revealing a diverse range of confidence levels among traders.

Grossman told me that he feels “very confident” in his trading decisions or else he wouldn’t enter a position. He generally does his homework and enters only if, and when, the time is right.

“I’d rather not be in a trade wishing I was, than to be in a trade wishing I wasn’t,” Grossman said. “It doesn’t surprise me that most people say they are only slightly confident. What we see are lots of newbies, which is what we would expect of them at this point in their trading career.”

Income Investors Overcome Emotions to Profit: ‘Pigs Get Slaughtered’

“There is a great quote that many traders and investors know, which is this: ‘Bulls make money, Bears make money, but Pigs get slaughtered,’” Stephens said. “If you have overconfidence in anything that doesn’t have a 100% chance of working out in your favor, you can get slaughtered and have to lick your wounds. Overconfidence when dealing in financial trading can cause you to risk more than you should, which would then cause you to lose more money in the event that a trade goes against you.

“This, in turn, would cause an emotional blow that you may not be able to recover from. When traders start out, they may rely on ‘gut feelings’ that may work out with the first few couple of trades. These ‘gut feelings’ then may turn into nausea if a trade goes against them that they thought was going to go in their direction. They then, in turn, blame the market, can turn to hope for a position to turn into a winner, or even start praying depending on the size of their position. This is, of course, what separates the long-term players that stick around, versus the hobby traders that may lose their entire account over a few short weeks or months.”

Geopolitical Risk Rises

The death of Russian opposition political leader Alexei Navalny at the hands of his captors in a Russian prison and the refusal of the country’s President Vladimir Putin to release the body of his rival show that nation is moving further along the path of brutal autocratic government with shrinking prospects for its people to have a voice in their governance. With the main opposition leader now dead, the upcoming election in Russian is viewed as a sham by many world leaders, including President Biden, who responded with criticism of Putin and sanctions.

Putin has held power in Russia since 2000 either as president or prime minister. If he is re-elected and completes a new full six-year term in the country’s next election on March 17, he will surpass any Russian or Soviet leader in tenure, even Tsar Peter the Great, who died in 1721.

Russia also is making inroads in seizing additional land in Ukraine with Western leaders failing to sustain their previous funding of the weapons needed to fend off the invaders. The United States Congress specifically has been unable to pass legislation to help Ukraine continue its quest for freedom as a treasure beyond measure.

The war in Gaza is continuing in response to the Oct. 7 attack and murder of 1,200 civilians in Israel by Hamas. Attempts to enact a temporary ceasefire thus far have failed.

Traders need to consider geopolitical risk when making investment decisions. At least for day traders, the risk typically is limited to just minutes or hours.

Income investing strategies can use options and dividends in pursuit of heightened returns.

Investors who are willing to accept additional risk in pursuit of potent profits may be tempted to try options, especially if guided in how to do so. One way to engage in options trading is with the stewardship of a seasoned specialist, especially a person who also can serve as a stock sherpa.

One person to consider is Jon Johnson, a recipient of business and law degrees from the University of Texas at Austin, who is the editor of Investment House Daily, Technical Traders Alert, Rapid Profits Stock Trader and Pick of the Week. He also has gained additional attention as a guest on CNBC-TV, Bloomberg TV, Houston’s 650 Business Radio and a source in various financial articles in the Washington Post, Chicago Sun-Times, The Wall Street Journal’s Smart Money magazine, Bloomberg, Kiplinger Personal Finance Magazine, Houston Chronicle, Business Week and Money magazine. Johnson also was featured in Forbes.com’s Best of The Web online edition.

Jon Johnson: Income Investing Strategies Can Use Options and Dividends

Johnson told me he never really understood why the earning income from options or dividends tend to be separated. The money is income either way, he added.

“It can be argued that the risk is different, but risk is typically often tied to lack of knowledge of the variables,” Johnson continued. “More variables imply more risk, but if you implement strategies to control or account for the variables, risk diminishes. Indeed, with purchasing options there is certainly limited risk: the price of the option.”

Johnson developed his own trading and investing style that became so successful his brokers asked if they could follow his trades for themselves and their clients. He then began to provide investing and education services to clients prior to sharing his insights through Investment House.

Jon Johnson leads Investment House Daily, Pick of the Week, Technical Trader and Rapid Profits Stock Trader.

Investment House Daily trade options as well as stocks. Some of its positions have been held long term in stocks.

“We had plays on AAPL that lasted years,” Johnson said. “What we do with those name-brand stocks that we hold for as long as they perform is sell calls against them after upside rallies. There are technical attributes to rallies that I know very well and share with my readers as to when a particular rally leg is peaking. We use those to write calls against the stock, let the stock fade back to test, then buy the same strike and month of options sold, pocketing the difference.”

That strategy is simple for stocks held long term, Johnson counseled. With Investment House Daily, the decision was made to try and keep stocks roughly $80 or less so subscribers could build a better position.

“That allows us to be in stocks that grow, such as AAPL, did,” Johnson said. “But it does preclude a lot of the name brand stocks out there that sport a share price in the hundreds or even thousands.

Income Investing Strategies Can Use Options and Dividends: Investment House Daily

Investment House Daily features both options and stocks in its trades that are accompanied by an in-depth look at each market session to address the technical moves and their significance for stock indices, bonds, currencies and commodities, Johnson told me. Sentiment indicators are monitored by the Investment House Daily service to help in making investment decisions.

Those indicators include put/call ratio, bulls versus bears, short interest, the VIX volatility index, etc., to forecast how the Investment House Daily service should recommend options for subscribers to buy and to sell. Market leadership is examined to assess whether an upward or downward trend is emerging, Johnson added.

“From this information, we glean top picks and craft plays that we will enter if the conditions are met,” Johnson explained. “The plays sought are quality stocks, preferably $75 per share or lower, so we can more easily invest and trade the stock and not necessarily have to play options if we prefer not to. A lot of factors determine what plays make the report.”

Video reports are offered on the weekends, and on Monday and Wednesday. Each Tuesday and Thursday, subscribers receive full writeups but without related videos. Email and text alerts announce when subscribers should enter positions, take profits and exit them, Johnson said.

“I like to say we want to get people to my definition of success: doing what you want to do, when you want to do it,” Johnson said.

Write-ups about new recommendations are provided on the weekends, with related charts. During the weekdays, Johnson details what stocks are interesting and discusses them in his video reports. Tables can be accessed online by subscribers to see any changes in recommended buy points, stop-loss points, news, etc., he added.

Income Investing Strategies Can Use Options and Dividends: Options Trades

A 68.00% dividend profit was procured in February 2024 when Investment House Daily recommended call options in ProShares Bitcoin Strategy ETF (ARCX: BITO). As the first U.S. exchange-traded fund that seeks to correspond to the performance of bitcoin, BITO invests in bitcoin futures and does not invest in bitcoin. There is no guarantee the fund will closely track bitcoin returns.

Yet a higher gain of 121.78% was obtained when Investment House Daily recommended calls in Dallas-based Dave & Buster’s Entertainment Inc. (NASDAQ: PLAY).

Income Investing Strategies Can Use Options and Dividends: Technical Traders

Technical Traders Alert is an options-only service that provides the same market summary features as Investment House Daily. In addition, Technical Traders Alert offers time-sensitive alerts.

“This service follows leaders but does not eliminate plays because the fundamentals are not there,” Johnson told me. “Trades are technically based, and the best patterns win, so to speak. Price of the stock is not a concern because this is an options service primarily focused on buying calls and options — used to do spreads, but the maintenance of spread positions made an alert system cumbersome and unsatisfying to subscribers.”

Due to Technical Traders Alert focusing on the buying of calls and puts, everything needs to be right from earnings awareness, to expiration, to strike price, etc., Johnson told me. The outlook must allow for an “acceptable” 3:1 potential gain to risk, with other great characteristics such as gap fills, Fibonacci extensions, etc., for targets, he added.

“We don’t care if the market rises or falls – we fish off the front or the back of the boat, playing what the market gives,” Johnson said. “That is the motto: take what the market gives.”

Johnson previously recommended Lam Research Corporation (NASDAQ: LRCX), a Fremont, California-based provider of wafer fabrication equipment and services to help chipmakers build smaller and faster electronic devices. Within just days of the Feb. 9 recommendation, Johnson informed his subscribers to sell, producing an average gain of 54.27%.

Income Investing Strategies Can Use Options and Dividends: Pick of the Week

Pick of the Week selects one equity from the daily alerts each week to highlight in this stock-only report, Johnson said. The Pick of the Week is distributed to subscribers on the weekend. The service also offers a table of recommendations but no market analysis, he added.

One Pick of the Week trade that turned into a substantial double-digit-percentage winner in just 73 days between October 16, 2023, and December 28, 2023, featured Chicago-based Coeur Mining (NYSE: CDE). The stock of the precious metals producer generated a 27.18% gain.

Chart courtesy of www.stockcharts.com

Coeur Mining operates four wholly owned operations: the Palmarejo gold-silver complex in Mexico, the Rochester silver-gold mine in Nevada, the Kensington gold mine in Alaska and the Wharf gold mine in South Dakota. Plus, Coeur Mining owns the Silvertip silver-zinc-lead exploration project in British Columbia. A lesson about the volatility of the stock was shown on Tuesday, Feb. 13, when its share price plunged 8.3%, falling 24 cents a share to $2.54.

Another profitable Pick of the Week trade occurred between November 29, 2023, and January 2, 2024, with San Francisco-based Opendoor Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: OPEN). Opendoor aims to facilitate the buying and selling of a home on a mobile device by serving as an e-commerce platform for residential real estate transactions. That Pick of the Week stock trade produced a profit of 39.37% within 34 days.

Income Investing Strategies Can Use Options and Dividends: Rapid Profits Stock Trader

Rapid Profits Stock Trader is another stock-only advisory service led by Johnson. But Rapid Profits Stock Trader lacks the market analysis offered in his Pick of the Week service.

Rapid Profits Stock Trader uses texts and emails to inform subscribers of when to buy and sell the stocks it recommends. In this service, the guidance takes the form of an alert that instructs subscribers what to buy and sell, as well as when.

Paid subscribers receive access to an online website that provides an update about all current positions. The focus of Rapid Profits Stock Trader is on lower-priced equities in the $1 to $40 range that show great entry opportunities, Johnson said.

The idea is to “move in,” collect 5%, 10% and even 15% or more based on explosive moves, Johnson told me.

“We typically don’t hang around in a position, if possible,” Johnson said. “We watch a lot of stocks, and when there is one ‘turning the corner,’ i.e. after a decline it shows the attributes of breaking higher or shows some other setup that can deliver a rapid gain, we issue the alert for the play.”

Two highly profitable trades closed earlier this month. The one in China’s Nano Labs Ltd. (NASDAQ: NS) produced a gain of 44.91% in 249 days.  The chart of NA below reflects the recent volatility in China’s beaten-down market.

Another double-digit percentage trade came from Cerus Corp. (NASDAQ: CERS), a biotechnology company in Concord, California. The stock jumped 10.23% in three days, leading Johnson to advise his subscribers to take their profits.

“One of my phrases is we ‘take what the market gives,’” Johnson said. “That is a good principle to apply to any market because it puts you into the correct mindset to profit. In a strong trend, higher or lower, it is easy: you find great technical patterns with the right attributes such as strong accumulation or distribution, a logical target such as a gap point, a prior high or low, and a trendline. You buy in, you let it work, you take the gain.

“When the market is volatile – choppy as I like to call it – it is not so easy and that is where many stumble. You have to adjust your mindset to what is possible in that particular market. If you approach that market with the ‘take what the market gives’ mindset, you immediately adjust your criteria. You don’t demand less from plays, you demand more: clear entries, clear targets, quick entries and quick exits.”

Another advocate of option trading is Hugh Grossman, who leads DayTradeSpy’s Trading Room. Buying a stock produces a dividend payout worth a cup of coffee, but an option can give an investor much more, for so much less, he told me.

Hugh Grossman leads DayTradeSpy’s Trading Room.

“If you spend the $469 on options – two call contracts – a 3-cent move on the calls will yield $6, which should be able to get you a donut, such as a cruller, and a coffee,” Grossman said.

Geopolitical Risk Returns

Geopolitical risk seems to keep rising. The United States is embroiled in politics as shown by an all-night session when the U.S. Senate voted 70-29 early Tuesday morning, Feb. 13, to approve a $95 billion national security supplemental package with aid for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan. The bi-partisan approval occurred despite attempts by dissenters to deny the funding.

Certain Democrats opposed the proposal due to the loss of more than 28,000 lives in Gaza following the Oct. 7 attack of Hamas in Israel that killed 1,200 people, as well as the abduction of about 250 others. That led to an ongoing military response to stop the aggressors. Republicans who objected to the foreign aid aimed their opposition at a lack of funding to protect the U.S. border from migrants crossing from Mexico to America illegally. Before providing help to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan, those lawmakers sought to secure the U.S. border first.

House Speaker Mike Johnson said he will not bring the supplemental foreign aid package to a vote in the House due to its omission of a border protection proposal that he asked to be included. Democrats spoke of trying to force a vote on the measure.

“The House acted 10 months ago to help enact transformative policy change by passing the Secure Our Border Act, and since then, including today, the Senate has failed to meet the moment,” Speaker Johnson said.

The U.S. House voted 214-213 on Tuesday, Feb. 13, to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, with the Republican majority seeking to hold him accountable for the Biden administration failure to control waves of migrants entering the United States illegally from the Mexican border. Secretary Mayorkas narrowly became the first cabinet member to be impeached in nearly 150 years.

For investors seeking to obtain income from options and dividend-paying stocks, the Investment House Daily, Pick of the Week, Technical Trader and Rapid Profits Stock Trader services led by Johnson combine to provide ways to do so.

Three dividend-paying gold funds to purchase for income and potential share price appreciation are gaining attention.

BofA Global Research is among the investment firms that are forecasting a rise in gold prices during the second half of 2024. The three dividend-paying gold funds to purchase are expected to climb if the Federal Reserve cuts interest rates later this year.

Gold also can serve as a hedge against geopolitical risks. Such threats to peace have occurred from Russia’s expanded invasion of Ukraine and the Oct. 7 attack and murder of 1,200 civilians in Israel and more than 100 others later died from injuries related to the attack. In addition, Hamas militants kidnapped 250 others, as well as committed rapes and sexual violence in starting a war in the Middle East that has led to 27,585 deaths in Gaza, as well as the wounding of nearly 67.000 people.

Gold traditionally performs well during geopolitical upheaval, inflation and U.S. dollar depreciation, so the precious yellow metal often is bought as insurance during tumultuous times. Gold is viewed in many parts of the world as a way to shield savings from a possible bank crisis or even government confiscation of traceable personal assets in certain countries. Plus, a recent report by BMO Capital Markets found that the price of gold is no longer driven by real interest rates.

Three Dividend-paying Gold Funds to Purchase for Income: Bullish Forecasts

Many investment firms are recommending the purchase of gold, wrote Frank Holmes, the chief executive officer and chief investment officer of U.S. Global Investors (NASDAQ: GROW), a provider of eight no-load funds and two exchange-traded funds that feature precious metals, natural resources and emerging markets. One example is XIB Asset Management, a Canadian hedge fund that soared over 200% in the first two years of the pandemic, and forecasts that gold and uranium will outperform the market if the Fed cuts rates.

That view may seem counterintuitive, especially with rates still above 5% and the stock market at an all-time high, but analysts at JPMorgan forecast that the precious metal will benefit later this year from Fed rate cuts and heightened demand for the shiny asset.

Significantly, the active month gold futures contract for the most volume/open interest, closed last Dec. 1 at an all-time of $2,091.70 per ounce, a comfortable $16 per ounce break above the prior all-time record close of $2,075.20 per ounce on August 6, 2020, Jim Woods wrote to subscribers of his January 2024 Successful Investing newsletter. However, the breakout to new highs occurred as the active month futures contract was rolling forward from the December 2023 contract to the February 2024 contract. Secure storage costs result in higher back month futures prices, Woods explained.

“The recent volatility in the yellow metal has resulted in gold becoming a popular investment topic,” Woods opined.

Three Dividend-paying Gold Funds to Purchase for Income: GDX

The VanEck Gold Miners ETF (NYSE ARCA: GDX) became the first gold miners exchange-traded fund in the United States when it launched in 2006. GDX seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the NYSE Arca Gold Miners Index (GDMNTR), a pure-play, global index intended to track the performance of the largest publicly traded companies in the gold mining industry.

Gold miners feature companies whose primary business activities are exploring, extracting and refining the precious yellow metal. Keep in mind that risks in gold mining include the length of time and expense of bringing the precious metal out of the ground and to the market.

The largest holdings in GDX focus on major gold miners that tend to be less volatile and more mature in their business cycle than their smaller peers. These major gold-mining companies tend to be well-capitalized, have vast industry experience and international operations.

For GDX, its biggest holdings and their weighting in the fund’s portfolio are Newmont Corp., 13.08%; Barrick Gold Corp., 8.86%; Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd., 7.94%; Franco-Nevada Corp., 7.10%; and Wheaton Precious Metals Corp., 7.08%. Canada is the country that accounts for the lion’s share of the fund’s net assets with 40.96%, followed by the United States, 18.11%, Australia, 11.94%; South Africa, 10.36%; and Brazil, 7.02%.

The emphasis on major gold mining companies avoids the risk endured by many new and small mining companies that may be unable to endure the time required to produce materials and refine them. On average, it takes more than 20 years before a mine reaches production.

Three Dividend-paying Gold Funds to Purchase for Income: NUGT

The Direxion Daily Gold Miners Index Bull and Bear 2X Shares seek daily investment results, before fees and expenses, of either 200% of the upside or 200% of the downside, respectively, of the performance of the NYSE Arca Gold Miners Index.

The NYSE Arca Gold Miners Index is a modified market capitalization weighted index comprised of publicly traded companies that operate globally in developed and emerging markets. The companies are primarily engaged in mining for gold and, to a lesser extent, in mining for silver. The Index will limit the weight of companies whose revenues are more significantly exposed to silver mining to less than 20% of the Index at each rebalance date.

With many analysts and investment firms forecasting that forecasts that gold, the bullish strategy appears most relevant for the next 12 months. The bullish ETF is Direxion Daily Gold Miners Index Bull 2X Shares (NYSE ARCA: NUGT). The ETF to use to profit is gold mining stocks fall is Direxion Daily Gold Miners Index Bear 2X Shares (NYSE ARCA: DUST. The following cautionary words pertain to both strategies.

Leveraged and inverse ETFs pursue daily leveraged investment objectives that are riskier than alternatives which do not use leverage. These riskier funds seek daily goals and should not be expected to track the underlying index over periods longer than one day. As a result, they are not suitable for all investors and should be used only by those who understand the risk and actively manage their investments.

The largest holdings and their weighting in the index are Newmont Corp., 14.23%; Barrick Gold Corp., 9.47%; Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd., 8.09%; Wheaton Precious Metals Corp., 6.67%; Franco-Nevada Corp., 6.35%. Canada accounts for nearly half the net assets in the index, with 49.47%. The United States is second with 20.12%, Australia, 11.35%; South Africa, 6.20%; and the United Kingdom, 5.50%.

Three Dividend-paying Gold Funds to Purchase for Income: RING

A third dividend-paying gold fund to purchase for income is the iShares MSCI Global Gold Miners ETF (NASDAQ: RING), which seeks to track the investment results of an index composed of global equities of companies primarily engaged in the business of gold mining. RING is another dividend-paying ETF that aims to focus on the largest mining stocks.

The largest holdings in RING differ somewhat from those of GDX and NUGT. RING’s top holdings also feature Newmont, with 18.84% of the portfolio. The next biggest holdings and weightings are Barrick Gold Corp., 12.63%; Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd., 11.11%; and Gold Fields Ltd., 4.83%.

Regardless of what dividend-paying gold ETF an investor may prefer, others also are looking into buying the precious yellow metal. Confirmation of rising interest in gold comes from a new survey that found the most searched personal investment in the United States is the precious metal. Gold has amassed an average monthly search volume of 1,191,827.

Indeed, gold is a commodity that trades based on supply and demand; the ratio between supply and demand determines the price of gold at the time of the investment, the survey found.

With the elevated interest rates and the continual concerns of a recession in the United States, gold can be a reliable long-term investment and outperform other assets such as properties and different equities since it is easier to liquidate, the survey researchers wrote. There are also tax advantages in gold investments, since prices of the precious metal jumped considerably in 2023 and have shown staying power compared to other markets.

Three Dividend-paying Gold Funds to Purchase for Income: Top Holding

All three of the dividend-paying gold ETFs to purchase hold Denver, Colorado-based Newmont Corporation (NYSE: NEM), the world’s leading gold company, as their largest position. Newmont not only produces gold but also silver, copper, zinc and lead.

The company, the only gold producer listed in the S&P 500 Index, has its mining assets in “favorable” places in Africa, Australia, Latin America & Caribbean, North America and Papua New Guinea, according to its website. Newmont is among many precious metals mining stocks whose share prices fell by double-digit percentages during the past 12 months.

Woods and his partner Mark Skousen, PhD, a Presidential Fellow at Chapman University, co-head the Fast Money Alert trading service that produced a 22.71% return for their subscribers by recommending Newmont slightly longer than two months between March and May 2020. Fast Money Alert also turned a profit of 58.33% by advising subscribers to buy Newmont call options in January 2015 before recommending their sale roughly three weeks later. Skousen, a scion of Ben Franklin who sometimes impersonates his Founding Father ancestor, also has led the Forecasts & Strategies investment newsletter for the past 44 years.


Mark Skousen, leader of Forecasts & Strategies and co-head of Fast Money Alert, talks to Paul Dykewicz.

Skousen wrote in his February 2024 Forecasts & Strategies investment newsletter that gold remains above $2,030 an ounce. Skousen continued that he expects gold to rise in the next year.

Another fan of Newmont as a turnaround opportunity is Michelle Connell, president and owner of Dallas-based Portia Capital Management, LLC. But mining stocks carry risks, she added.

Despite the availability of investing directly in gold mining companies that are publicly traded, they can be “very volatile,” Connell counseled. Such gold mining stocks may fall with the whims of the stock market, as well as face geopolitical threats that can disrupt gold production in certain countries, she added.

Michelle Connell leads Dallas-based Portia Capital Management.

“If someone is an investor who wants access to physical gold, they’re going to pay in excess of $2,000 an ounce,” Connell said. “That is not convenient for most individual investors.”

The stock is selling at its lowest price-to-earnings (P/E) in five years at 15.30 x forward earnings, Connell told me. Newmont’s average P/E is 25, she added.

Income lovers will appreciate Newmont’s dividend yield of 4.65% that is supported by strong free cash flow estimated at $3.7 billion for 2024 and $4.5 billion for 2025, Connell continued.

Currently, NEM’s “all-in” cost of production for gold is $1,400 per ounce. With gold selling at close to $2,000 per ounce, NEM has strong profitability, Connell stated.

With gold estimated to rise to $2,500 per ounce, Newmont’s profit margin could go higher. The company is scheduled to report financial results on Feb. 22.

“Given it is short-term downward trend, I would dollar-cost average into a position over the course of the next few months,” Connell counseled. “Several analysts estimate that there is 20-35% upside over the next 12-18 months. I agree with them.”

Three Dividend-paying Gold Funds to Purchase for Income: Pension Leader Perspective

Bob Carlson, a former pension fund chairman who now heads the Retirement Watch investment newsletter, is recommending gold though a trust. In the February 2024 issue of Retirement Watch, Carlson advised his subscribers that gold continues to deliver “solid returns,” even though it had a slow start in the initial weeks of 2024.

“I believe gold’s recent strength is due largely to international tensions and not economic fundamentals, Carlson wrote.


Bob Carlson, who heads Retirement Watch, answers questions from Paul Dykewicz.

Geopolitical Risks Worsen

In the Middle East, geopolitical risk is rising. The United States has responded militarily to the killing of three American service members in Jordan on Sunday, Jan. 28, by striking sites in Iraq and Syria used by Iranian forces and Iran-backed militants. U.S. military forces hit targets at facilities involved in attacking U.S. personnel in the region, National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said. The targeted facilities included command and control operations, intelligence centers, rockets and missiles, as well as drone storage sites.

“The United States does not seek conflict in the Middle East or anywhere else in the world, President Biden said. “But let all those who might seek to do us harm know this: If you harm an American, we will respond.”

The Israeli Defense Force (IDF) continues to take out Hamas leaders who are hiding in neighboring Gaza after orchestrating the Oct. 7 attack against civilians in Israel that killed 1,200 people. A potential hostage exchange between Israel and Hamas is under discussion but remains elusive.

Gaza’s Hamas-run Health Ministry reported more than 27,100 people have died there since the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) began a military response to the Oct. 7 murder of men, women and children living there, along with the kidnapping of around 250 people from Israel to the Gaza Strip. In addition, the Hamas Health Ministry reported more than 65,000 people have been wounded in Gaza since the Oct. 7 invasion of Israel.

With world leaders expressing concern about the deaths and escalating violence in the region, the International Court of Justice ordered Israel on Friday, Jan. 26, to limit deaths and damage but did not demand a cease-fire in the Palestinian territory.

A lasting peace remains uncertain in the Middle East where militant groups like Hamas in Gaza have a goal of annihilating Israel and killing its people. Based on reports from the Hamas-run Health Ministry and other sources, more than 90,000 people have been killed or injured since Hamas militants sparked the latest war in the Middle East with its Oct. 7 attack. The Hamas infiltration of Israel caused the IDF to respond militarily to try to end the threat rather than await the next one without seeking to stop further incursions.

The three dividend-paying gold funds to purchase for income offer a hedge against geopolitical risk as wars are worsening in multiple parts of the world.

Three dividend-paying gold stocks to consider purchasing feature companies whose share prices have dropped significantly in the past year but could rebound in the next 12 month.

BofA Global Research is forecasting a rise in gold prices during the second half of 2024 that could reward patient investors. The three dividend-paying gold stocks to consider purchasing may climb as geopolitical risks mount due to Russia’s intensified invasion of Ukraine and the Oct. 7 attack and murder of 1,200 civilian in Israeli at the hands of Hamas militants that began a war in the Middle East.

Three Dividend-paying Gold Stocks to Consider Purchasing: BTG

Canada’s B2Gold (NYSE AMERICAN: BTG) (TSX: BTO), a low-cost international senior gold producer headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, offers the best dividend yield of any miners engaged in the exploration and extraction of the precious yellow metal. Founded in 2007, B2Gold operates gold mines in Mali, Namibia and the Philippines, has a mine under construction in northern Canada and is pursuing development and exploration projects in countries such as Mali, Colombia and Finland.

Despite the company’s major pullback in price during the past 12 months, it announced positive exploration drilling results on Jan. 31 from its Antelope deposit at the Otjikoto Mine in Namibia. The Antelope deposit, comprised of the Springbok Zone, the Oryx Zone and a possible third structure, Impala, is approximately three kilometers south of the Otjikoto Phase 5 open pit. The Antelope deposit could be developed as an underground mining operation, which could complement the expected processing of stockpiles at the Otjikoto mill from 2026 through 2031.

B2Gold drilled 37 holes of roughly 20,715 meters at the Antelope deposit in 2023, with a plan to nearly double the meters drilled in 2024. Discovered in 2022 using deep drill testing on three-dimensional models of magnetic inversion data, the Antelope deposit will receive most of B2Gold’s US9 million 2024 exploration budget for Otjikoto.

In 2023, B2Gold completed a US$3.3 million exploration program in Namibia, with exploration drilling focused on its ML169 mining license that Otjikoto. The majority of that drilling targeted the high-grade gold mineralization of the Antelope deposit, the company reported.

As the drilling expenses indicate, B2Gold is spending millions of dollars a year to explore and find new mines to propel its growth. The company’s share price dropped 29% in the past year, so investors so far have not seen progress to bid the shares upward.

Three Dividend-paying Gold Stocks to Consider Purchasing: HL

Hecla Mining Company (NYSE:HL), a Coeur, d-Alene-based producer of silver, zinc and gold, has incurred a stock price drop of 39% in the past year but has some positive developments ahead. An update will occur when Hecla releases its fourth quarter and full-year 2023 operational and financial results after the market close on February 14, 2024.

One emerging opportunity is increasing interest in renewable energy. Silver, zinc, and other metals are needed across the supply chain for the renewable energy sector.

Renewable energy, electric vehicles and innovations in battery technology are critical to meet goals for a reduced carbon future, Hecla officials said. Demand for responsibly sourced metals is growing, and Hecla plans to help deliver what is needed, they added.

The drive to decarbonize relies increasingly on silver. The precious metal has the highest electrical and thermal conductivity compared to any alternative, and it is vital in producing renewable energy and electrical vehicle components, Hecla’s leaders explained.

Three Dividend-paying Gold Stocks to Consider Purchasing: FNV

A gold royalty company that Mark Skousen, PhD, has recommended profitably twice in the past is Franco-Nevada Corp. (NYSE: FNV), of Toronto. His most recent profitable trade occurred in the Fast Money Alert trading service that he partners with stock picker Jim Woods to lead. That recommendation between December 2022 and May 2023 produced a return of 5.68%.


Mark Skousen, head of Forecasts & Strategies and scion of Ben Franklin, talks to Paul Dykewicz.


Jim Woods, a former U.S. Army paratrooper, co-heads Fast Money Alert.

Mark Skousen, PhD, a Presidential Fellow and scholar at Chapman University, wrote in his February 2024 Forecasts & Strategies investment newsletter that gold remains $2,030 an ounce. Skousen continued that he expects gold to rise in the next year.

FNV offers a large and diversified portfolio of cash-flow producing assets. Its business model provides investors with gold price and exploration optionality while limiting exposure to cost inflation.

Franco-Nevada is navigating a problem with its mine in Panama that it operates with a partner, First Quantum Minerals Ltd. The Cobre Panama mine currently remains in a phase of preservation and safe maintenance with production halted. As a result of the current suspension of operations, Franco-Nevada is conducting an impairment analysis and plans to disclose the findings in its 2023 year-end financial statements.

First Quantum has provided an update about its position regarding the next steps required for the responsible environmental stewardship of the Cobre Panama mine site. In addition, First Quantum announced it intends to pursue all appropriate legal avenues to protect its investment and rights. In turn, Franco-Nevada plans to pursue all appropriate legal avenues to enforce its rights and protect its investment in Panama.

The uncertainty is a drag on Franco-Nevada’s share price. However, Franco-Nevada announced on Tuesday, Jan. 30, that its Board of Directors raised its quarterly dividend to US$0.36 per share payable on March 28, 2024, to shareholders of record on March 14, 2024. The increased dividend will be effective for the full 2024 fiscal year. The 5.88% increase from the previous US$0.34 per share quarterly dividend marks the 17th consecutive annual increase for Franco-Nevada shareholders.

Gold royalty companies have less risk than mining companies. The bulk of its revenue comes from gold, silver and platinum. The company does not directly develop mining projects or conduct exploration and drilling. Partly due to the shutdown of the mine in Panama, Franco-Nevada’s share price has fallen 25.5% in the past year, 14.09% in the last three months and 1.67% in the past week.

There is no rush to buy the shares before Franco-Nevada provides an update in its 2023 10-k about the status of the mine in Panama. If the mine is restored to operation, the financial prospects of Franco-Nevada should be much improved.

Gold Coins May Appeal to Investors

Aside from recommending gold stocks, precious metal coins and funds offer alternatives. Consider purchasing gold and silver coins from a reliable dealer, such as Van Simmons of David Hall Rare Coins, of Santa Ana, California.

By far the best value in holding physical gold would be the older pre-1934 gold $20 Liberties and Saint Gaudens, Simmons advised. For the last seven or eight years, there has been a big influx of the importation and repatriation of the coins back to the United States from foreign lands, Simmons added.

“If you just look at the extra fine grade $20 Liberties — struck from 1850 to 1907 — for the last 40 years or so, they have always had a big premium on them, Simmons said. “It typically ranged from 75% to 125% over the spot price of the spot price of gold.”

Dividend-paying Gold Funds Offer Another Alternative 

Woods recommends a gold fund for subscribers of his Successful Investing investment newsletter. That position is profitable, and Woods is encouraging his Successful Investing subscribers to hold onto it for further potential gains.

Bob Carlson, a former pension fund chairman who now heads the Retirement Watch investment newsletter, is recommending gold though a trust. In the February 2024 issue of Retirement Watch, Carlson advised his subscribers that gold continues to deliver “solid returns,” even though it had a slow start in the initial weeks of 2024.

“I believe gold’s recent strength is due largely to international tensions and not economic fundamentals, Carlson wrote.


Bob Carlson, who heads Retirement Watch, answers questions from Paul Dykewicz.

“If I’m going to own a gold fund, it is going to be a fund that’s 100% backed by the physical metal,” said Michelle Connell, president and owner of Dallas-based Portia Capital Management, LLC.

Despite the availability of investing directly in gold mining companies that are publicly traded, they can be “very volatile,” Connell counseled. Such gold mining stocks can fall with the whims of the stock market, as well as face the ill effects of geopolitical threats that can disrupt gold production in certain countries, she added.

Michelle Connell leads Dallas-based Portia Capital Management.

“If someone is an investor who wants access to physical gold, they’re going to pay in excess of $2,000 an ounce,” Connell said. “That is not convenient for most individual investors.”

An exchange-traded fund (ETF) would make more sense since it is “economically accessible,” Connell continued. If an investor needs to get in and out of gold quickly, an ETF allows purchases and sales inter-day, she added.

Perth Mint/Asset Strategies International Provide Another Path

Another path to invest in gold is offered by Rich Checkan, president and chief operating officer of Asset Strategies International, a full-service, tangible asset dealer in Rockville, Maryland, close to where I live. Asset Strategies International offers precious metals, pre-1933 U.S. gold and silver coins, as well as world and ancient coins.

For investors who seek to buy precious metals, Checkan said “one of the safest” ways to do so is through the Perth Mint Depository Distributor Online (PMDDO) program. This program enables investors to buy and sell gold, silver and platinum securely and directly online seven days a week and 24 hours a day at some of the lowest premiums in the industry, Checkan added. The precious metals also can be stored, in some cases, for free at the Perth Mint.

“Just like investors can log into their brokerage account and buy and sell ETFs, investors can do the same with their PMDDO account,” Checkan said.

Once logged into an account, investors see both their live cash and bullion balance, and have the option to purchase, sell, or withdraw their metals. When clients make a purchase or a liquidation through the program, the metals are automatically added to or withdrawn from their account. Clients who want to take delivery of their metals should receive their shipment within 10 business days.

“Looking at the worst case for the PMDDO, there is a 1% premium to gold or silver when buying and a 1% discount to gold or silver when selling at the minimum transaction of $50,” Checkan said.

Aside from a straight price comparison, the Perth Mint program helps to mitigate the risks of liability, security and delivery, Checkan continued. The world’s only government guarantee provides Perth Mint clients a uniquely safe storage option, Checkan added.

“All in all, PMDDO is the clear winner when compared to other forms of physical precious metals ownership,” Checkan said. “When compared to ETFs, it compares quite well, but delivers so much more aside from premium.”

Geopolitical Risks Worsen

In the Middle East, the United States responded militarily on Feb. 2 to the killing of three American service members in Jordan on Sunday, Jan. 28, by striking 85 sites in Iraq and Syria used by Iranian forces and Iran-backed militants. U.S. military forces hit targets at seven facilities involved in attacking U.S. personnel in the region, National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said. The targeted facilities included command and control operations, intelligence centers, rockets and missiles, as well as drone storage sites.

“Our response began today,” President Joe Biden said in a statement. “It will continue at times and places of our choosing. The United States does not seek conflict in the Middle East or anywhere else in the world. But let all those who might seek to do us harm know this: If you harm an American, we will respond.”

The Israeli Defense Force (IDF) continues to take out Hama leaders who are hiding in neighboring Gaza after orchestrating the Oct. 7 attack against civilians in Israel that killed 1,200 people. A potential hostage exchange between Israel and Hamas is under discussion but remains elusive.

Gaza’s Hamas-run Health Ministry reported at least 27,100 people have died there since the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) began a military response to the Oct. 7 murder of men, women and children living there, along with the kidnapping of around 250 people from Israel to the Gaza Strip. In addition, the Hamas Health Ministry reported more than 65,000 people have been wounded in Gaza since the Oct. 7 invasion of Israel.

The IDF successfully carried out a raid at a hospital in Gaza on Monday, Jan. 30, where a Hamas leader was located. That leader and two other Hamas militants at the hospital were killed by Israeli forces.

With world leaders expressing concern about the deaths and escalating violence in the region, the International Court of Justice ordered Israel on Friday, Jan. 26, to limit deaths and damage but did not demand a cease-fire in the Palestinian territory.

A lasting peace remains uncertain in the Middle East where militant groups like Hamas in Gaza have a goal of annihilating Israel and killing its people. Based on reports from the Hamas-run Health Ministry and other sources, more than 90,000 people have been killed or injured since Hamas militants sparked the latest war in the Middle East with its Oct. 7 attack. The Hamas infiltration of Israel caused the IDF to respond militarily to try to eliminate the threat rather than await the next one without attempting to stop further incursions.
