Greece's bailout extension doesn't spell an end to market uncertainty, CNBC's "Fast Money" traders said.
"If you get any type of issues, gold's the way to play it," said trader Brian Kelly.
European finance ministers on Friday agreed to extend Greece's bailout package for four months, contingent on Greek fiscal reforms. Though markets reacted positively to the news, more geopolitical concerns loom, Kelly said.
Conflict in Ukraine, for instance, could derail markets, he said. If market volatility drives gold higher, Kelly sees upside in the SPDR Gold Trust, in which he has a long position.
Trader Guy Adami was also bullish on gold. He looked to trade gold miners with the Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF.
The Greek deal bodes well for European stocks, said trader David Seaburg. If European equities climb, the SPDR Euro STOXX 50 ETF could prove a good play, he said.
"I do believe it's going to go up near-term," Seaburg said.
Trader Dan Nathan didn't see as much promise in European stocks. He said he planned to look at put options in the fund on projected weakness down the road.
Russia provides another uncertainty for European markets, Kelly said. Moody's Investor Service downgraded its sovereign debt to junk status on Friday.
He sees downside in the Market Vectors Russia ETF moving forward.
