Ano ang Dollar Cost Averaging?

Ang Beginner’s Guide


Ang Dollar cost averaging (DCA) ay isang tool na ginagamit ng mga investor para sa pagbuo ng yaman sa paglipas ng panahon habang pinapaliit ang epekto ng panandalian at pangmatagalang volatility.

Sa madaling sabi, ginagamit ng mga investor ang DCA method upang mag-invest ng mga fixed amount ng pera sa isang asset sa mga regular time interval, anuman ang presyo nito. 

Karamihan sa mga market ay dumaan sa mga cycle kung saan ang presyo ng isang asset ay maaaring tumaas (bull market) o bumaba (bear market) sa isang tiyak na panahon. Samantalang ang mga DCA investor ay maaaring bumili ng mas kaunting shares ng asset na iyon habang mataas ang presyo, higit na makakabili pa sila ng mas madami kapag mababa ang presyo. 

Investors may not always purchase the asset at its best possible price, but a DCA strategy removes much of the complex work that goes into attempting to time a market.

Dollar Cost Averaging Bitcoin & Crypto

DCA can prove particularly useful when investing in cryptocurrencies, a historically volatile asset class that trades 24/7 on the global markets.

For example, someone who dollar cost averaged into bitcoin by purchasing $5 weekly in 2020 would have accrued $692 from a $275 total investment, providing a 160% return.

Although this may not have yielded the highest profit, it protects against the possibility of investing at Bitcoin’s highest price point.

Bakit ka gagamit ng Dollar Cost Averaging?


Investors may be drawn to dollar cost averaging as a “set it and forget it” practice for investing in asset classes they believe in over the long-term. 

Due to the nature of using one’s hard earned cash for purchasing assets, investing can be a highly emotional practice. As a result, dollar cost averaging can help mitigate the reactivity and impulsivity that may happen from trying to time the market.
