Any traders or investors here who played the market back then? Care to share some of your experience.... Did you make it big or lose it all? Did stocks rise 10 fold year to year? Is it true stocks was the only thing people talked about on the street at work or in the bars? Was your mom playing it? Is she in the stock market today? It might be a worn out topic but I have a problem with the following disconnect... Stocks were booming and everyone was in it or so they say.... These last 2 years stocks exploded equally yet general sentiment towards stocks by the populace seems very negative or at least that's my perception.... So it takes more then rising stock prices to get the public on board? Anyway, thanks for any insights.
