What did you learn from the stock market crash?
The stock market crash actually taught a valuable lesson to all investors. The lesson is that, don't keep all your eggs in the same basket. Because of the great bull run in the days before the crash, people were so confident of the stock market that they felt it would never crash. So people invested even their retirement corpus and other money into the stock market. Unfortunately when it crashed, the whole economy burned. So the lesson is, keep your investments in different asset classes and have exposure to debt and other fixed income instruments too. Different lessons could be learned from the different crashes that have occurred. From the 1928 crash, one of the lessons was not to use too much leverage in making one's investments (borrowing too much on margin). From the 2000 market crash one of the lessons was to avoid bubble stocks as in that particular cash tech stocks. From the 2007 crash one of the lessons was to not trust the banks nor the government. Each crash actually teaches us different lessons. My favorite lesson though all of the crashes has been to make sure you always have a nice fat cash reserve to buy with when everyone else is selling and to build that cash reserve when everyone else is buying.
