Dollar cost averaging

Dollar cost averaging Definition

An investment approach used to buy a fixed dollar amount in the same stock or mutual fund on a regular schedule over a long time span. It is designed to reduce the average cost per share because more shares will be bought when the price is down and fewer shares will be bought when the price is up.
