Sensex was an all-time high in January 2019, and people who invested in stocks a decade ago when the markets crashed and held this long, reaped high profits. It’s quite clear that holding the pitch for long did bring the money back home with good profits. It can be put in a way that an investment is just a test match, longer you stay, the better it is.
