Reassess finances immediately, turn cash into a material gain

Better to buy things instead of hanging on to any cash you might have. Looks like the current market instability will be around for a while, and best thing to do is go ahead and turn cash into some type of solid object. Real estate is too risky right now. Buy anything you might need in the future, even storable food. This is not like the Y2K days, but this is getting pretty serious where any paper investment you've had -- including retirement accounts -- needs to be rescued from possible oblivion as the current crash spreads. Take the tax hit and get your money, then spend it on something beneficial, do it as soon as you can!
