It is extremely important to study the past. A lot of big rallies and price declines were caused by specific events or a chain of events. When you understand how certain types of actions have impacted markets in the past, you can predict how an event happening right now will impact markets in the future. For example, the fact that quantative easing was very bullish for stocks in 2009-2014 tells you that any future rounds of QE will most likely be good for stocks as well.
