Time to ask the question: Now what?

Those not yet retired can probably look to the future for market recovery and upward movement. However, this is an especially important question for those of us who ARE retired and who may be actually depending on some of our investments right now.

Please, let's try not to just state the obvious -- "stay diversified" or "hang on tight" and such. What are you DOING or BUYING (or selling) right now?

I certainly don't claim to know the answers, and I doubt if many on here have a crystal ball, either, but it seems to me we're at a significant juncture. Will we slide (or fall) into a true recession? If so, what happens to our investments? All of us who more or less try to actively manage, or at least watch, our funds and stocks are asking that question.
I do NOT think we will have a recession in the near future, so I'm buying carefully now.
I think we DO face a recession, so I'm shifting to "safer" investments (examples below).
I feel confident that my investments are well managed as is.
I have no idea, feel that it won't affect me, and don't much care.
