  • Short The Stock Market: One option is for you to load up on inverse ETF. An inverse ETF is set up so that its price rises (or falls) when the price of its target asset falls (or rises). If you buy an inverse ETF that bets on the fall of Nasdaq, that ETF will rise if the Nasdaq eventually falls.

Opportunities: ProShares UltraPro Short QQQ ($SQQQ), Direxion Daily Small Cap Bear 3X Shares ($TZA), ProShares UltraShort 20+ Year Treasury ($TBT).

  • Buy Only Value: Value stocks trade for less than they are intrinsically worth, as such, in volatile times, investors trust their fundamentals to keep them afloat compared to their growth stocks counterpart.

Opportunities: Vanguard Value Index Fund ETF ($VTV), the iShares Russell 1000 Value ETF ($IWD), and the iShares S&P 500 Value ETF ($IVE).

  • Stock up on Utilities: Companies in the utilities sector provide basic services like electricity, natural gas, and water. If you’re a newbie investor or an investor looking for stability in all these hubbubs, utilities may be a great choice, since they provide dividend income and stability. When economies grow weaker, utilities stocks tend to be a strong defense for investors.

Opportunities: Some ETFs include Vanguard Utilities ETF ($VPU), Utilities Select Sector SPDR ETF ($XLU); Some Value Utilities Stocks include NRG Energy ($NRG), Brookfield Renewables ($BEPC); Some Fast-Growing Utilities Stocks include DTE Energy ($DTE), OGE Energy ($OGE).
