Just throwing this one out there. Going back to 2007-9...The great recession (don't remember the correct time period, but you get the point). The US spent 1 trillion dollars+ on infrastructure and it got us diddly squat. China took their time and money and built high quality infrastructure (example trains to Europe)! Whatever happens to the US market for the next 5-10 years, it still seems like China would be the way to go. You would buy and hold things like HAO, QQQC. You could do covered calls on them (way out of the market). Get the dividends...Wait years. Let the US try and fix their infrastructure NOT!! If and when China comes roaring back (yeah, I know it's been roaring pretty good at this time), but if you are in a recession, to hold onto quality stocks of China into retirement would seem like a wise thing to do. Thoughts?? As you can tell...Long term investor here...Who just does covered calls.
