For those that answered 5, how did you recover those losses ?

Were you not fully invested in 2008 when the market tumbled ?
Did you time the market and manage to sell high and buy low ?



not so much sell-high, buy-low as sell as sold as it fell
(lived through the 2000 puke and waited too long to sell back then)

and have been buying back on the rise.
