How can you jump into the market without knowing its history? well its easy right 😀 Let me do you a favor and share with you a very long term chart to show you how the market has behaved over time. No it wont predict the future, but it may hep reduce some emotional anxiety for investors by showing some reality of the past. Boom and busts, they are all in this chart.
One important note, the chart is in log form, which is a way of mathematically making the chart easier to view.
