Booking 66.4% Option Gains in Emerging Markets and 115.38% in China

Nicholas Vardy

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

After Monday’s big rally in the stock markets, and yesterday’s news that the United States managed to avert the dreaded “fiscal cliff,” global markets are rallying sharply today.

And it’s when markets rally sharply that options enjoy their biggest gains.

So, today I am recommending that you sell half of your February $43 call options in the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets Index (EEM) for a 66.4% gain and half of your February $40 call options in iShares FTSE China 25 Index Fund (FXI) for a 115.38% gain.

Hold on to both the underlying ETF holdings, ProShares Ultra MSCI Emerging Markets (EET) and ProShares Ultra FTSE China 25 (XPP), as well as your remaining options, for potentially bigger gains in the weeks ahead.
