Many 401K funds offer guaranteed income funds or money markets among their list of investment choices. If you are convinced the equity markets will crash, those fixed income funds offer you the best defensive position.

Last time treasury bonds proved safest. Your govt backed bond could be best.

But frankly I hope you are wrong. These days the media do a great job of hyping every story. Most of the claims are exxagerated--often by a lot.

Let's hope the US learns to reduce its deficits before the grim reaper comes to visit (forcing policy changes a la Greece on the treat of economic calamity). Economic recovery is slow to arrive, but I am still optimistic eventually it will get here, and when it does, that will do a lot for our deficits.
