Escalator Up Elevator Down Dollar Cost Averaging

The last few days have solidified Owls Nest Capitals' investment strategy. We have always preached the Dollar Cost Averaging model, our investors divide up the total amount to be invested across the market using periodic purchases of a target asset in an effort to reduce the volatility on the overall purchase. Buying your asset's price and at regular intervals, the strategy removes much of the detailed work of attempting to time the market in order to make purchases of equities. No one can time the market and when it happens is basically luck. We at Owls Nest Capital are also not day trading stock churners, we believe in doing the homework, buying quality well-run companies that pay dividends, and have a positive dividend payout history not only in years but increasing dividends over time. Remember the old adage "Escalator Up Elevator Down" with the introduction of even faster computers you see more dramatic moves with the selling algorithms and the drops are faster, and wider across multiple industries causing havoc with the retail investors. Although it's one of the more basic techniques, dollar-cost averaging is still one of the best strategies for investors looking to trade the market.
