Yes, if you look at extreme cases (the year of the Great Depression, in your example) at times DCA might win. But it's a question of probabilities- see my previous post.

What about in the years 2000, 2001 & 2002? I know In 2003 that I lost money by DCAing. I've sent in the forms to stop my DCAing in 2004, but I'm still not sure exacly what I'm going to do.

Have to stop here. I keep falling asleep. We will have to continue this tomorrow.
