There is a lot of consensus that the Trump Presidency will crush emerging markets by way of the destruction of trading partnerships and new trade wars. But that post-election decline has fully retraced AND with all of the fears of euphoria in the US with equity prices at all time highs and appearing extended in price and appearing extended in valuation, this Emerging Markets is certainly showing a very different picture. The fears may be overblown about Emerging Markets AND there may be plenty of upside now that the sellers have sold all they can sell. Old buyers are sellers here at the 38-42 range, which it tested last year and now appears to be going for another test here in the first quarter. (January high 37.62, 37.38 last).

I have been an avid watcher of both of these, and play them also. VWO gives a bigger dividend (I think), but EEM has great volumes (I think). In either case, if you overlay them, they are almost equal.
I would agree that this is coming out of a slump and I have read many articles talking about how it is going to be the turn of the Emerging Markets to move up.
I am going to play Put-Sells on it in the interest of acquiring but a couple of days ago when I looked at it for the Feb expiration, I was not impressed with the premium on the option. So, I did not do it, but I plan to do it and aquire some ETF shares with a few Put-Sells.
