I recently discovered that I can use options to create a 4-6% weekly income stream from my GOLD holding.

Chris, there seems to be something seriously wrong with your thinking here! 😀 If you have really discovered the magical way to earn 5% per week, why would you only do it with 2% of your portfolio???

5% per week times 52 weeks... means you will make 260% per year, without compounding.

If you compounded it weekly you will end the year UP eleven hundred and sixty four percent, or with close to 13 TIMES what you started with.

After two years you would have 160 TIMES what you started with!

That translates to 16,000 percent of what you started with!!!!

With the alchemists secret in your hand, why just 2% of your portfolio????

Why not sell everything you have and turn it into gold, all your stocks, and your home, and car, and everything.... and turn it into GOLD ????

Is there possibly a mistake in your calculations?
