Ok, thanks. My opinion is that DCA has no reason to exist, and you should just invest all you can as soon as you have it (obviously letting the amount build to certain point so the txn costs don't overwhelm the investment.) Whenever I hear someone trumpeting the virtues of DCA, I inquire a little further to make sure I'm not missing something.

Why DCA remains so popular, and the subject of endless articles by the financial community vs AYC (All You Can) investing is beyond me. So I'm supposed to use DCA to invest exactly $1000 per month. What if I have $2000 one month? I can't invest the extra $1000...that would be ruining the whole spirit of things!
