Dollar-Cost Averaging 101

You’ve no doubt heard from friends and family about the long-term benefits of investing in digital assets, noting how they promise far better returns than a standard savings account. The wealthiest people in the world often have impressive investment portfolios, and financial advisors will tell you that investments are a critical part of a comprehensive saving plan.

However, unless you are one of the few people who have studied finance, you probably don’t have the time to be staring at charts all day. Research shows that the most successful investors put their money in and then literally forget about their portfolios. This type of “set and forget” investing may not be sexy, but it works.

Dollar-Cost Averaging (DCA)

This is where the idea of dollar-cost averaging comes in — an investment strategy developed for investors who don’t have the time or knowledge to trade markets effectively. Dollar-cost averaging involves investing a set amount of money into your portfolio on a scheduled basis, irrelevant of current price or market movements. This means you’ll occasionally buy at a high price and sometimes at a low price, but in the long run, it’ll even out.

With dollar-cost averaging, you reduce the risk of suffering large losses while at the same time sacrificing the potential for large gains. It may be less exciting than trying to buy the dips and sell the tops, but it’s far safer if you don’t know what you’re doing. If you are investing in a trusted asset that promises decent gains in the long-term, then you’ll always come out on top with dollar-cost averaging.
