    Even if you take market crashes into account, the S&P 500 averaged around 9.5% growth rate annually in the past 90 years. While it is unpredictable, the trend is up overall. It will punish people who sell in a panic, and "day traders" who think they can beat passive investing.

    True. Just throw in a small amount to get your feet wet. I have heard that advice from many professionals/professors. Starting small is probably preferred. It's a learning process. Like science. You test strategies and their outcomes and adjust. Find out what you are good at. I think you have a science background, that could give you an edge in certain stocks. Every good trader has some kind of edge. Some kind of style that can make them outperform. Find your edge.

    Haha, I'm psyched for how this presents opportunity. I'm throwing in another $40k into the market as we speak :) Time to make some money!

    @Prokofievian and others. what I mean by trading edge. I will give an example. I know a guy in biotech. I can do all the research in the world on biotech and stages of drugs and blah blah blah. But I can never know how the industry actually works. What actually goes on and what it means. I refer to him for that. He has real world experience.

    Jobs again:

    Somebody thinks it time to get money in. The market was trending down and was down 500 points at noon. It jumped back up but is again trending down.

    Yeah, I'm predicting that this will go on for at least another week. And it can take a few days for money from bank accounts to hit money market accounts, so it's not a huge rush.

    I recommend hunkering down. It's going to be a bump ride, but if you can swing it, now is the time to get in on something. I wouldn't be too risky at the moment because we don't know what this is yet. A correction can be 10-20%, and we are closer to 10. But if you go with the blue chip stocks that pay a dividend, now is a great time to throw a bunch of money into the game. When the markets return to their glory of about 2 weeks ago down the line, you will be richer for it.

    Personally, I'm looking at throwing a ton of money at Apple and Visa. Buy and hold :)

    Those sort of things really have the biggest impact if the market is struggling. Otherwise it's just gilding the lily and there won't be much. (Also, the stock market is anticipatory).

    How I paid for my first year of university was buying up a bunch of resource stocks/funds after the 2008 GFC. Since they were trading for less than they were worth I basically printed money. Then I was in school for a long time, moved country a couple times (shit's expensive), so I was quite poor until recently. Now it's time to get back in the game.

    Or the people who get unlucky and are at retirement age during a crash.

    Does everyone realize this is what the stock market was doing, when the global economy almost completely crashed?

    This week's total drop still didn't even meet the 10% to formally be classified as a "correction", so I'm not reading too much into this.
