In recent times, there was a bit of a market drop in 2008. The bottom happened in March 2009. Those who stayed in the market returned to pre-drop levels in 2011. There are also people who still have the cash they got from selling in December 2008 in CDs. They will never recover the 50% of their funds lost.

Stupid people do stupid things. Don't be stupid.
