What is dollar-cost averaging?
Dollar-cost averaging is a method of investing that can help reduce the risk of timing the market.
The dollar-cost investing method means an investor is regularly buying a specific amount of an investment, allowing them to invest a large sum of money a little bit at a time.
The potential benefit of using this method is that, because prices fluctuate, buying a fixed amount of an investment over a longer period of time can allow an investor to take advantage of the average price of an investment over days, weeks, or months.
