The Dow Jones was up nearly 400 points today, led by blue chips Walmart and Boeing.
Walmart soared after posting its best sales in over a decade.
Boeing jumped on hopeful reports that U.S.-Chinese trade talks will soon resume.
And so the daily soap opera continues, with its twisting plots, rotating characters… and fleeting love affairs.
Turkey, the past week’s main antagonist, has gone offstage — at least for now.
But for how long?
Let us briefly revisit the last emerging-markets crisis in search of light…
The crisis was in swing by early July 1997, when Thailand suddenly devalued its currency.
Panic spread throughout emerging markets as Indonesia and others followed in train.
Anxious credit fled emerging markets as fast as legs could take it.
But the drama did not impact U.S. stock markets for months.
It was not until late October that the blade swung this way… nearly four months later.

And with just a few smart plays in today’s classic stock picker’s market, you can pull in triple-digit gains with just a small investment.
The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
The markets are upbeat about the latest reports surrounding trade between the United States and China. Despite news that roughly $16 billion in fresh tariffs are going into effect this week on Chinese goods, markets are hoping that momentum begins to build ahead of discussions between leaders of world’s two largest economies. With that said, President Trump downplayed upcoming discussions in an interview with Reuters on Monday. Back on June 21, I wrote about a fast-moving, high-profit stock – Dover Downs Gaming & Entertainment Inc. (NYSE: DDE). And that recommendation has brought in gains of roughly 103% since then. But we’re not done with the top gambling stocks. Today, I’m back with an entirely different way to make fast gains in this space. To see the latest bargain play, read up on this fund that no one is talking about. We’re talking a quick double-digit gain, no questions asked
