There is no guarantee that a diversified portfolio or asset allocation will enhance overall returns or outperform a non-diversified portfolio. No strategy protects against market risk. Dollar cost averaging involves continuous investment in securities regardless of fluctuation in price levels of such securities. An investor should consider their ability to continue purchasing through fluctuating price levels. Such a plan does not assure a profit and will tend to generate higher transaction cost. Investors should consider the tax consequences of moving positions more frequently.
