I was considering yesterday that volatile changes in price (like yesterday) are reduced through averaging. Short term price changes are just 'noise' and nothing to freak out about when you dollar cost average your investement purchases (and manage your finances well in general. ) Take a look at how smooth the green line in this chart is. So here's my question for the veterans. What's the best way people have managed to do dollar cost averaging when stacking silver? Buying weekly, monthly, quarterly, yearly? What's worked the best for you? When you buy more frequently, obviously you need to spend less for each weekly purchase... but then that increases your costs for shipping and premium over spot. So what's the 'sweet spot' or best balance between making a large enough order to reduce the impact of shipping, and between making frequent purchases? Any thoughts?
