It depends, what is your academic qualification and work experience?

I have joined a few pay-to-click websites and survey websites.
I make around 300-400 per month.

The drawback of this technique is that it will never get capital appreciation from the underlying securities as anytime the stocks go above strike the option holders will exercise their rights and the fund will be forced to liquidate at lower price. However when the price of the underlying stocks go down, the fund has no counter balance in hedges and will absorb the full write downs.

Long term effect is you have high dividends and deprecating unit price. The fund has dropped by close to 60% since inception due to falling NAV. Out of the 10% yield, I estimate only ~3% are real dividends, the remaining is just round about capital returns. This is not something newbies with little money should be buying.

My 2c.

Definitely more than 2c worth thanks!

Does resorting to calling people names made u feel superior?
Learn from the poster before u, his 2c worth is more constructive than yours.
Why don't u share your experience or investment with us instead?

Since you work 9-5, why not be an uber driver at night and during weekends?
Can make extra money to pay for your car.

Hi. Can share or pm where you find the students?
