Emerging Markets Just Got Red Hot Again

Brazil managed to pull off the 2016 Summer Games, South America's first ever, free of major problems or disruptions.

The same can't be said of the country's politics or its economy, though. Massive budget deficits, rocketing interest rates, and a plunging currency are linked with a widening corruption scandal that's brought down the president of Brazil and spurred violent civic unrest.

That doesn't seem like a likely source of market-beating 44% and 24% gains, but that's exactly what our Brazilian plays have returned over the past 10 months – a time that's seen plenty of global investors run away from the country's 200 million consumers.

Clearly, not every investor is running out on Brazil. In fact, a few of the world's smartest, richest investors are making a beeline for Brazil… along with other, similar markets that offer better diversification, higher yields, and bigger gains.

But you don't have to leave home for profit potential like this. It's really easy to buy...

My Chart Shows Why We Can’t Trust These Market Highs

Good news is good news again – for now.

The Labor Department's announcement that July unemployment held steady at 4.9% while adding a better than expected 225,000 jobs was enough to snap the four-day pullback and get traders in the mood to buy.

Those numbers don't necessarily reflect the street reality of the economy, but of course they were enough to get the S&P 500 to yet another new all-time high, even if the Nasdaq Composite, Dow Jones Industrials, and the Russell 2000 didn't quite make it.

This is a near-term bullish development, especially when you consider that, before this recent upward trend, we've gone 14 months between all-time highs.

But... when you see the chart I'm about to show you, you'll agree it's not quite time to pop the champagne corks...

Terror and Chaos Can’t Stop the Markets, but I Know What Will

Uncertainty seems to be the only sure thing in the world these days. Friday's failed, bloody military coup attempt in NATO ally Turkey comes at the worst possible time in the West's fight against Daesh in Iraq and Syria, just one day after the terror group pulled off a horrific attack in the south of France.

Here at home, we've had several high-profile incidents of violence and civil unrest during one of the most heated, tense presidential election campaigns in modern history.

Yet if you only follow stock markets, you'd barely know anything was amiss. With record highs on the Dow Jones Industrials and the S&P 500, there seems to be no stopping this thing.

But I'm not expecting this to last.

I'll show you what we're going to do when we get our pullback, but first I want to show you why these markets are so strong right now...
