Dissecting the day's major business news, with the "Fast Money" traders; and with Q4 kicking off on Monday, how should investors strategize around DC gridlock, Fed uncertainty and earnings.

Gold prices have brighter days ahead, Brian Kelly of Brian Kelly Capital said Friday.

"The reason why I say that is I think you're going to have continued quantitative easing," he said. "You saw it happen in the gold market. The rhetoric is shifting here from the Federal Reserve. They are starting to focus more on inflation."

On CNBC's "Fast Money," Kelly noted that consumer confidence had slipped to its lowest point in five months.

"So, I think going into the fourth quarter, the best play here is going to be gold," he said.

EmergingMoney.com's Tim Seymour saw it differently.

"The trade for me is: You stay in the re-acceleration in some type of an industrial move," he said.

Seymour also pointed to positive economic data out of China, as well as the Bank of England's announcement that it would not provide additional financial stimulus.

"This is a sign to me that real names that show real growth are places you can stay in this trade," he said.

One area that may have topped, he added, was Chinese internet names.
