This Bear Market Advice Can Be Very Effective If You Do It In the Right Way

This Bear Market Advice Can Be Very Effective If You Do It In the Right Way

This inclination leads to the most common advice in a bear market: to build positions by averaging into them. No one can time the market with great precision, so a good way to build a position is to make smaller buys over a more extended period of time and hopefully end up with a pretty good average entry price. There is no disputing the wisdom of entering positions incrementally, especially in a poor market, but executing this strategy can be challenging.
