YOUR TOP SAFE HAVEN PLAYS

In a tough market, the Fast Money desk wants to provide you with some safe haven plays.

Brian Kelly of Kanundrum Capital recommends going with SPDR Gold Shares . If currencies were to devalue, he says gold tends to go higher. The best non-correlated asset over the past decade has been gold, added Joe Terranova of Vitrus Investment Partners. He recommends having a small percentage in your portfolio.

Karen Finerman of Metropolitan Capital Advisors has been in the medical products space. It will drop some, she says, but "probably less than the market."

Guy Adami of Drakon Capital likes PG & E , which he admits you won't get rich with. The valuation is also high, but he thinks it's a good place to hide out.

Jon Najarian of optionMONSTER.com suggests shorting the triple short, SQQQ . (Essentially he's getting long the market.) He notes it was up by 8% Wednesday.
