Sometimes a useful method for finding good trades to make is looking at what other people are doing, says Jay Soloff of Investors Alley.

For instance, we can easily search for large covered call trades in order to get trade ideas. One interesting covered call trade in iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (EEM) will boost the return from holding the ETF through January. This particular trade allowed for reasonable upside potential in the popular emerging markets ETF, while also providing a significant bump in return on cash compared to just receiving the standard dividend payout.
