>> 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 ?
Were you in other types of investments that performed better, like gold ? <<
Maxing out a 401K plus annual company match of about $6000 per year. Without new money, I'm probably still down 10-15% from the November 2007 high. But I've also added over $60K in new contributions and company match since then.
