U.S. Treasury Bond yields have declined since the Federal Reserve interest raised rates in December. Lower yields reflect a "flight to safety" strategy for investors avoiding stocks. Investing in gold is another "flight to safety" that's beginning to shine again. 

The exchange-traded fund that tracks this bond like a stock is the 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) - Get iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF Report , a basket of U.S. Treasury bonds with maturities of 20 to 30 years. The ETF to trade as a proxy for gold is the SPDR Gold Shares ETF (GLD) - Get SPDR Gold Trust Report , which is backed by gold bullion.

The downside pressure for crude oil stabilized on Jan. 20 along with the stock market. You can trade oil like a stock using iShares GSCI Commodity-Index Trust Fund (GSG) - Get iShares S&P GSCI Commodity Indexed Trust Report , which is 70% to 75% weighed to energy and crude oil.

The best ETF tracking the ups and downs of the dollar is the Deutsche Bank USD Index (UUP) - Get Invesco DB US Dollar Index Bullish Fund Report , which is basket of currencies including the euro, Japanese yen, British pound, Canadian dollar, Swedish krona and Swiss franc.
