This is why you dollar cost average boys and girls. During great depression, lump sum made $2 in 25 yrs. If DCA at $10k/yr, your $260k became $1.5m.

Have about $130k sitting in a HYSA, in addition to my $50k emergency fund. Is this a good time to start DCA this amount in the market? Keep hearing markets are going to drop. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I’m so bad at investing. I make many emotional investing decisions without thinking too much about them. Like I just sold ETF I didn’t like much and as soon as I sold it, it went up by 20%. So many of my individual stocks are underwater by a big margin. My returns are probably like 15-20% over the past 3-4 years. Anyone in similar boat? I should just stick to VOO and DCA...?

401k question: It seems generally advantageous to lump sum your Roth IRA each year as early as possible vs DCA since it can accumulate returns at a higher rate over time. That being said, does this apply to 401k as well? For ex: is there any downside in just front loading my 401k contribution completely each year if I can cover living expenses in the meantime? (i.e putting 100% of paycheck into 401k contribution until limit) thanks!

In the long-term, what tends to be more valuable financially? 1. High 100% cash comp (I.e. consulting/banking) that you can then invest (assume S&P500 index DCA) or 2. Somewhat high cash comp with RSUs (Big tech, etc). Also assume excess cash here is put in SP500 Index DCA.
