I prefer a bullishly biased vertical call spread.
It is not too late for investors to join the emerging markets rally, but they must choose carefully.

Novice Trade: BEN Real Money Pro($)

I prefer a bullish call shooter.
So let's move to the abbreviated Monarch Notes form of "Takeaways," with "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly." The Good * Thus far, the "flight to safety" trades worked today - bonds, bond equivalent stocks, yen/dollar, gold. * The market brought in dip buyers -- though I am not sure it will last today. * Lumber +$10 - an outsized move. * Thus far, though down modestly, (T)FANG remains the place to be. * Seagate Technology (STX) and Western Digital (WDC) +. The Bad  
I prefer a bullishly biased vertical call spread.

Novice Trade: BEN Real Money Pro($)

I prefer a longer-term bullishly biased tactic.

BEN was upgraded from Sell to Hold, Deutsche Bank said. Valuation call, based on a $41 price target.
Cash stack could benefit from tax repatriation and/or higher interest rates.
This long call shooter gives the new POTUS and Congress time to pass a tax repatriation plan.

BEN was downgraded from Hold to Sell, Deutsche Bank said. Valuation call, based on a $35 price target.
