Dollar Cost Averaging (DCA): One of the best ways to take advantage of turbulent times like these is to do what is called dollar cost averaging. Consistently buying your investments on a monthly basis helps avoid the pitfalls of economic downturns by buying at very low prices when the market is down. The trick is to keep buying/contributing during these downturns, so when the market rebounds, the investments you purchased through a recession will rebound with the market.
