A lack of significant interest from dip buyers, however, since the stock market crash of late February and early March means plenty of UK shares still trade on rock-bottom valuations.

A terrific dip-buying opportunity?

Our view of the 2020 stock market crash here at The Motley Fool is clear. We reckon the correction provides an exceptional opportunity for investors to get seriously rich in the years ahead.

There are too many top-quality UK shares that were oversold during the initial crash to miss. We can buy these for low cost today and possibly get stinking rich as they rebound in value once market confidence begins to recover.
