You must have heard stories about the stock market “crash” of 1929 causing dozens of people to commit suicide. Many people indeed did lose their entire investments. But was there more people seeing death as the only way out?
There is no evidence that anyone leapt to their death because of the market crash, although several did shoot themselves. One thing for sure is that investing blindly in stock market is somehow similar to committing suicide. Babies learn to walk before they run.
