The Basics: Dollar-Cost Averaging
DCA, or “Dollar-cost averaging”, is a popular way to accumulate an asset over time. Instead of a one-time lump sum purchase, DCA involves purchasing a fixed amount of an asset in predetermined intervals.
For example, purchasing $100 worth of Bitcoin on the 1st of every month is dollar-cost averaging into Bitcoin. Investors with a positive long-term outlook on Bitcoin can use DCA to reduce the impact of volatility on their investment.
This strategy has a few key benefits:
Invest with smaller amounts over time. Even new investors can build wealth by starting small and staying consistent.
Take the emotion out of investing decisions. When you’re investing on a schedule with predetermined rules, you’re less likely to FOMO buy the at the top or miss out on a bottom.
Invest for the long-run by spreading out your cost-basis. Instead of buying once and hoping you timed the market well, focus on long term gains rather than short term volatility.
