How does short-term options trading work?
What is an option?
An option is a standardized contract that trades alongside stocks on the major exchanges.
Stock options form the heart of the Weekly Wealth Alert system — a fact that tends to intimidate new readers. That’s because they’ve been led to believe options are complicated and risky… so they want nothing to do with them. But the truth is options aren’t so tricky once you understand them.
You can use a broker to buy and sell an option just like a stock. And like a stock, the price goes up and down in response to market conditions.
The biggest difference between stock trading and options trading is what you’re trading. Stocks shares, of course, represent part ownership in a company. When you buy a stock, you buy a part of the company. When you sell your stock, you give up that ownership.
Options are a little different. An options contract gives its owner the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell a stock at a predetermined price by a predetermined date.
Every option covers 100 shares of stock.
You can learn more about options in Alan’s handbook, here.

What if I need to take a break or stop my subscription? Can I give it to a friend or family member?
If, for any reason, you need to pause one or all of your publications, please contact Customer Service at email@example.com or 1-844-370-6635. Your research services will be paused until notification is received that you are ready to resume receiving your research and recommendations.
Lifetime memberships include a Legacy Program. This means that at any time during the duration of your subscription, you can elect a beneficiary to receive your lifetime subscription. The only monetary obligation to the beneficiary is the annual maintenance fee, if applicable.
How will I know when to sell a stock?
How will I know what the recommendations are?
Every recommendation you receive will include the research and reasoning behind the alert and the specific ticker symbol of the recommended stock. Recommendations will be in bold type and will say to either buy or sell. Your subscription also comes with access to the publication’s model portfolio, which is managed and updated on the St. Paul Research website. You can always refer back to the model portfolio to see the current recommendations for your service.
If you’re looking at your subscription on the website, specific recommendations will be included in the view prior to reading your alert or issue!
How long will it take for my first mailed issue to arrive?
Based on the publishing schedule, it can be four-six weeks until your first mailed issue is delivered. You can always view the latest issue online, and if you have provided us with an email address, you will receive each issue electronically as well. You can check the publishing schedule here.
How often can I expect to get information from my subscription?
All actionable alerts and updates are sent as needed via email. There is no set schedule for alerts, as they depend on the performance of the market. Each publication is on an issue schedule, however, so you can expect to receive your weekly or monthly issue on a regular basis. You can review when the mailed and/or emailed issues will be sent, here.
How do I get started? What do I do after getting my special reports?
After your order processes, you will receive a confirmation email. This email will contain the links to your introductory and special reports that will show you how to use our research service. You will also receive a username and password. These will give you access to the online archives. After you take a look at the reports, you can take a look at the publications’ latest alerts and issues. Your first alerts and recommendations will be sent to you via email. If you are subscribed to an advisory research service, you will also receive a hard copy of your newsletter in the mail. You can view our publishing schedule here.
While you are waiting, if you plan to invest, you should open and fund a brokerage account if you do not already have one. St. Paul Research is a publishing house and is not licensed to invest on your behalf. Due to Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regulations, St. Paul Research cannot recommend or back any particular brokers. A select few of our subscriptions include a list of recommended brokers, and you can find this information under the “Report” section of the website. If you need help finding a broker that fits your investment style, the free resources provided by Yahoo Finance are a good place to start.
Once you are ready to take action on a recommendation, you will need to contact your broker with the stock symbol and buy-up-to price to place your order.
Why don’t I have access to the publications that say ‘Subscriptions you may be interested in:’?
All of the services you have access to will be under “My Subscriptions” after clicking “View All Subscriptions.” Any publication that is under “Subscriptions You May Be Interested In” means you do not currently have access to that service. If you think you are interested in adding a publication to your account you can review more information about the investment research it will provide for you as well as the editor by clicking “Learn More” under that service’s title.
Please feel free to call customer service with any questions or to place an order over the phone at 1-800-708-1020.
What does my subscription include?
For an overarching view of what your specific subscription(s) include, on Day 4 of your welcome emails, your editor will outline each benefit in your subscription. The subject line of that email would have been: “Your Complete [Subscription Name] Guide.” For example: “Your Complete Income on Demand Guide” for Zach Scheidt’s Income on Demand.
Your subscription may include a monthly mailed and emailed newsletter and as well as your weekly emailed newsletter. You can expect to receive this information on a regular basis. After you order a new subscription, a welcome kit may be included in your purchase to introduce you to the editor and what you can expect. This welcome kit is often sent to you in the mail.
Buy alerts and sell alerts will be sent to you as needed based on stock and market performance. Any new reports that the editor writes are included in your subscription and can be located on the website after you log in using your username and password. All materials are archived online as well. An updated model portfolio with the current recommendations is located in the “Portfolio” section of your subscription. The “Closed” tab serves as the track record for the service and is updated regularly.
