    Inverse market index ETFs. These increase in price the more the major indexes decrease.

    1) Deposit saving

    2) Singapore saving bond

    3) High grade investment grade bonds

    4) Gold due to lower correlation with other asset classes

    5) Defensive sectors such as consumer discretionary and utilitiy companies, however this is of lesser extend because the correlation with general market is relatively low compared to other sectors but still positive

    Bonds tend to scale up for a while before coming down to earth with the rest.

    Gold.

    Defensive equities. For example, only Healthcare had a positive return amongst the US Sectors last year.

    If you're interested in these, I can always put together a defensive portfolio for you. I benchmark to be higher than SSB, and then when prices fall you can always switch over to low-cost equities.

    This is an extremely complex strategy though, that requires thorough explanation of the risks involved.
