After a disappointing U.S. jobs number Friday, "Fast Money" traders chose assets that could rally if the Federal Reserve stays put on interest rates for the foreseeable future.
The U.S. economy added 142,000 jobs in September, far fewer than economists had expected. The number reduced market expectations that the Fed would move off of near-zero interest rates this year.
In that environment, traders Steve Grasso and Dan Nathan looked to utilities stocks, which they perceived as defensive plays with little exposure outside of the United States. The Utilities Select Sector SPDR Fund, for instance, rose more than 1 percent on Friday.
"Utilities work on both sides of the argument" on the Fed raising interest rates, Grasso said.
With a rate hike possibly delayed, trader Tim Seymour believes rate-sensitive financial stocks could fall to appealing entry points. He said they make a "great opportunity" if weakness on Fed uncertainty continues.
Trader Guy Adami, meanwhile, would look to profit from gold. The dollar could fall if the Fed does not raise rates, which gives gold prices a good chance of rising, he contended.
He pointed to the Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF, which rose 8 percent on Friday.
