Best DCA strategy for entering the market? Should I just be doing this for index funds? Recently got a massive bump in pay and a large bonus. Was previously putting savings into BlockFi, crypto and individual stocks, but probably a bad idea to do that long term.

Play it safe and add extra money to down payment or DCA into index fund or invest in current home repairs/upgrades to prepare for rental...other options?

Outside perspective needed: I have ~$100K in crypto (long story but have been DCA in ETH since 2017). It’s now getting to 25% of my liquid net worth - when does it make sense to sell (if at all). I’m 27M and single (so I guess my risk appetite is quite high). I just have little investing experience and only invest in low-cost ETFs other than this.

Just dca eth. Timing it does not work when it “dip” it went from 2800 to 2500 and still no one bought now it’s 3k. The March to 10k is rolling y’all, hop on that train!

My investing strategy is just to DCA into an S&P 500 index fund and keep buying and holding. If I understand correctly, the sole disadvantage this has compared to a tax sheltered retirement account is that the quarterly dividends will be taxed? But even so, they’ll be taxed at a lower qualified dividend rate since I’m automatically reinvesting those dividends.

Question: I currently have a bit over $3000 worth of VTI ETF shares. Now that I’ve crossed over the $3k mutual fund minimum threshold, will this ETF begin to act as a mutual fund, where I’ll have the ability to DCA at any dollar amount instead of the full cost of the share? Does it automatically convert to VTSAX shares?

Hey Thinktank, I've been sitting on my savings for a while and want to put it to work for retirement savings. Thinking of putting 70% into XGRO (global diversified ETF). If this is for retirement (i.e. don't plan on touching it for the next 30ish years), does it matter if I throw all my savings in at once or should I be trying to DCA over next few weeks/months? It's about 26k in total that I want to put into XGRO or some other diversified ETF.

Fascinating to be one of the middle aged, dumb money/index fund DCA guys whose entire financial life is predicated on hitting lots of singles, and maybe buying the dip for the occasional double, all while my younger brothers and sisters take a much more swing for the fences approach with respect to the current market turmoil. Totally respect it and acknowledge that it’s not altogether inappropriate for those who are younger or who are doing it with fun money. But it’s fascinating.
