It’s that time of the year again. I’m not talking about shopping for the kids, I’m talking about 2024 predictions—especially for our favorite dividend plays: big-yielding closed-end funds (CEFs).

It’s a particularly good time to talk about CEFs because the 2022 selloff has left us some pretty sweet deals that are still around … even though 2022 ended more than 11 months ago! Chief among these “held-over” bargains is the 11.7%-paying CEF we’ll get to in a sec.

Not many folks have been paying attention to the US dollar’s latest jump, which is too bad, because it’s opened up a glaring profit opportunity.

The key?

A low-key fund throwing off a 7.6%—and growing—dividend and whose price is poised to surge with the greenback.

Before I unveil it, let’s take a quick look at how the dollar is driving this profit opportunity. When you see what I have to show you, I think you’ll be chomping at the bit to jump in.

The Donald and the Dollar

First off, the dollar has had a troubled history with President Trump, and that history is by design.…
