While the major part of the cryptocurrency sector is settling back into the sideways trading mode, Dogecoin (DOGE) is keeping up with the trend, and data suggests that using the dollar-cost averaging (DCA) strategy by investing $100 per week would not have been profitable for this digital asset in this year.
As it happens, DCA is a popular investment method that deploys spreading out purchases in specific intervals and buying in equal amounts of money, often used by investors who seek to avoid the downsides of other investing strategies that mostly rely on properly timing the market, watching the prices, and analyzing chart patterns.
Unfortunately, this strategy is not always ideal, as the markets can go through long periods of bullishness and high prices, as opposed to relatively short bearish times when the asset is cheaper, failing to protect the investor from ending up in a loss, as is evident in the case of Dogecoin.
Specifically, purchasing $100 worth of DOGE at approximately the same time every week since January 1, 2023, which would mean investing a total of $3,900 over the period of 39 weeks, would presently be worth $3,233.14, or 17.10% less than the amount invested, according to the cryptoDCA data on September 27.
As things stand, Dogecoin is at press time changing hands at the price of $0.0611, recording an increase of 0.59% on the day, although still retaining a loss of 1.65% across the previous week and declining 2.01% in the last month, as the recent charts indicate.
That said, factors that could help Dogecoin increase in price and make the DCA strategy a profitable one include positive developments related to its ecosystem, as well as the relevant public statements and actions of its biggest fan – Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk.
