A Momentum Play South of the Border — and Booking Three Double-Digit Option Gains

Nicholas Vardy has a unique background that has proven his knack for making money in different markets around the world.

This week’s Momentum Trader Alert recommendation comes from Mexico, the fifth best-performing stock market of 2017 from among the 47 global markets I track around the world on a daily basis.

Mexico’s performance this year may come as a big surprise given the negative market sentiment that surrounded Mexico and its economy following the election of Donald Trump as president of the United States.

Founded in 2000 and based in Mexico City, Mexico, América Móvil, S.A.B. de C.V. (AMX) provides telecommunications services in all nine regions of Mexico. Its network covers approximately 31.4% of the geographical area of Mexico, including all major cities and approximately 89.6% of Mexico’s population.
