Dollar-Cost Average


Dollar Cost Averaging (DCA) investment is a strategy designed to reduce the impact of volatility on large purchases of financial assets such as stocks. By dividing the total amount to be invested across periodic purchases of a target asset, investors aim to reduce the risk of investing a large amount in a single transaction. This approach allows for buying more shares when prices are low and fewer shares when prices are high, potentially lowering the average cost per share over time. DCA is particularly favored for its simplicity and its suitability for investors looking to build their portfolio gradually without the need to time the market.
