Just to clear some confusion: DCA means to buy on a schedule without paying attention to the price (even if its on a run or at an ATH). The basic idea is that sometimes you will buy high, sometimes you will buy low, but staying in the market for a longer period of time beats trying to time it.

  1. I love trying to time the market
    Buy high with FOMO and panik sell low. This is the way.

    In all seriousness, DCA has saved me from so much stress. I just purchase a little on Sunday at 9pm and try not to manically check the charts constantly I’m a lot happier and my portfolio is finally getting somewhere.

  2. That’s not what it means.

    You defined periodic investing.

    DCA is when you have an extremely large sum of money and spread out diversifying it over a long period.

    DCA gets thrown around way too much here and nobody knows wtf it even means.
