If you’re under the age of 40 you should be hoping for another stock plunge.
Because if you have a 10-year investment time horizon, you have an 88% likelihood that the stock market is higher after those 10 years. That’s starting in any month of any year going back to 1926.
If you have a 20-year time horizon, it’s 100%. There are zero 20-year periods where the stock market is down from the month and year you started.
Remember it’s a marathon not a sprint!
