Another point that needs to be emphasized is that all this discussion applies to all our *current* investments. Most of us, however, will also continue adding money into the market on a regular basis. The magic of DCA is such that all this regularly added money will show a profit even if the indices are at the same level 10 years hence. (Just as a point of reference, I remember reading that if you had continued DCA'ing into the market thru the Great Depression, you would have made a LOT of money by the end.)
