How much time Equity Investments will take to recover?
From the Last 40 Years, Since 1985, there were 6 Instances only when Equity Market has corrected more than 40% from their peak, and there were only 3 chances in this duration when it crashed more than 50% from their peak level.

See this table and observe how much average time Sensex took to recover back
We took all the Market crashes here when it corrected more than 40% in the past and found, on average, every time it took two years around to recover to the previous high level. In this, the shortest period of recovery has been six months, while the longest period was for two years, eight months. The average period was about one year, six months.
So, ideally, if we look back in history, it is observed that this is not the first time we saw such market correction. In the past, we have already seen these ups and downs, even worse to this what we are seeing now. But everytime it bounced back eventually. And, the average time it took in the past was 2 year around.
What’s more; If you keep investing with your Investments and stay put with your Existing Investment. This Recovery cycle works faster because you buy more units of the same fund or stocks at very low prices thus make the Investment cost lower, and hence you earn better returns when things get normalized
So, stay put with your investment and keep investing. Don’t Stop your SIPs. This is the best time after 2008 we all saw to get the benefit out of this market opportunity. So, Don’t lose this time.
