The war seems to be priced in as the markets open higher despite Wednesday’s large attack on Ukraine — and more in Thursday’s stock market recap.

The markets are in a free fall and many investors are struggling with where to move their money.
And while we go about our day with heavy hearts, it’s important to remember that behind most setbacks come new opportunities.

Each Thursday, I’ll combine two of my favorite things into a big-money opportunity: options plays and ETFs.

I’ll give you all the details you need to execute this plan.
