- A lot of people have a hard time timing the market, and buying the exact bottom of a dip.
- In this post, I want to explain a strategy that the average joe can use, in order to optimize their average entry price of their position
- DCA , or Dollar Cost Averaging, is when investors divide up the total amount of capital they're willing to invest in, and simply invest a portion of it regularly, regardless of price action and .
- So for instance, buying Bitcoin every Monday regardless of whether it has formed a new all time high, or has corrected 30% from its local top, is an example of DCA .
- We can apply this idea with a slight twist, and aim to buy the local dips.
- Above, we see Bitcoin's on the logarithmic scale.
- The 5 ( ) is marked in blue, 20 in green.
- A very simple DCA strategy would be to buy at the 20 when the 5 is at a downtrend.
- Looking at the price action of the past, we can roughly backtest this strategy.
- The points marked by the red circle would be regions where we would have entered a position for Bitcoin .
- Given that we enter $10,000 for each position, we would have entered a total of $50,000 at $25k.
- Giving us 140% returns, this would amount to $120,000 today.
If you're struggling with and you're having a hard time educating yourself on buying the right dips, refer to this idea, and try to think of your own way of dollar cost averaging through a simple strategy, as simple as referring to the moving averages.
