I’ve never heard of dollar-cost investing. What is it?
You might already be taking advantage of dollar-cost averaging and not even know it. If you have a 401(k) from your employer, then the chances are pretty good that you are. Your contributions are allocated to one or more investments on a fixed schedule no matter what the market happens to be doing. Every time this regular scheduled investment happens, you’re engaging in dollar-cost averaging.
In its simplest terms, dollar-cost averaging is a strategy that enables you to invest frequently and consistently without having to consider the price of an investment. And it’s one of the biggest factors of investment success over time.
This approach is completely opposite of what you typically hear other people talk about – buying investments, like stock, by timing the market. This is a bad approach because NO ONE can predict the markets, and because of human nature you’ll likely make some bad investment decisions (instead of buying low and selling high, you’ll likely end up doing the opposite).
You can set it and forget it.
Dollar-cost averaging allows you to avoid ‘timing the market’ so you don’t end up buying and selling at what you think are the “wrong” times.
Dollar-cost averaging turns your investment into a ‘safer’ investment because you simply continue investing regardless of what the market is doing. This strategy removes the temptation to buy or sell based on any emotional factors. You just hang tough. In the end, you’ll end up buying the average price of an investment, which is exactly what you’d want to achieve in the long run.
