I've been asked this question (and similar ones) lately by a few people... What is the best thing to do during a market crash? Obviously the sp has dropped, but it looks like it will probably continue to drop for a while. At the same time, they have large positions on the market, looking for long term capital gains. Would it be better to sell everything now, go fishing and buy back in later, or just keep everything there, brace, hide in the bathroom and brave the storm? I'm a little bit on the fence with this one - I'm too new and too young to have gone through a major correction/crash with any kind of capital on the market.
