COMMENT
Strategy when markets go down. It's about proportionality. When markets go down, you can't stand there like a deer caught in the headlights. Plan in advance what you're going to do and what you're going to buy during volatility. For example, he bought some ZQQ yesterday. He's been waiting around for months to pick his price. For holdings he already has, he's prepared to go in and buy when they hit his target price.

COMMENT
International ETF without Russia or China? If you want a global ETF, look at the S&P 500. There's so much interconnectivity with trade, it's hard to totally avoid countries like China. Enormous amount of trade between the US and China. Easier to avoid Russia, as it has a very shallow export market. Emerging markets tend to be heavily China, though that could change over time. iShares might be a good place to look first, as they tend to have more international offerings than the other ETF providers.

BUY
No issues at all. Good way to play the US market with its covered calls, which might be a good way to play a market that might be kind of flat.

Likes it. The higher dividend version of covered calls on the US market.

This product is fine. With Vanguard, you know you're getting quality and lower cost. Have to be aware that bonds have done poorly this year, and the longer the bonds, the more they've been beaten up. Positive toward short-term bonds. He'd look to pick some up after the first week of June, when he understands rates are going up by 0.5%.
E.T.F.'s
DON'T BUY
He's always interested in the Horizons newsletter, but he doesn't own any of their products. It involves seasonality and market timing. If you like this sort of thing, this ETF is fine. But for him, market timing is a bit like soothsaying.
