Dollar cost averaging

What is DCA?

Dollar cost averaging (DCA) is calmest investment strategy where person invests a fixed amount of money over given time intervals, such as after every paycheck or every week, without checking prices and stressing of pumps or dumps.

People choose this investment strategy when long term growth of an asset is foreseen (investopedia).

Timing

When should I start?

This is made to be simple and calm, remember? The rule of thumb here is - don't wait for any dips, just start. So, the simple answer is - now.

Even if price dumps in a meanwhile, historical data shows us that it will eventually rise (usually by a lot) which gives you a competetive adventage and lower average price.
