peipei appear then IWDA went south to 51.2 .. every month is like getting lower and lower. Hope is not wrong to stick to the DCA plan. Bought for Dec18 and average down by another 0.43, but still in the reds. been seeing this investment in the reds ever since I invested.
If 5 years later still red, then I dunno what to say but the bear has arrived. Otherwise keep calm n carry on.

I managed buy another 10 shares at 51.85, not the lowest as i queued too early as i knocked off work and heading for dinner. Here we hope the 3 down is over for this period finally.

51.85 + 1.9/10 = 52.04

You should just buy more each time. The commissions will add to your costs.

That, and stop trying to time the market.

You are taking too much of stress for too little. IWDA is not going to make you very rich or very poor in the short term. Whether it is 40 or 60 will not make much difference and that is the range. If you are young then just keep dumping your money into it every month, not 10 shares, more like 50 shares, if you want it to be meaningful. Over the long term like 20 years from now you will be rich.

How sure are we that IWDA will go up in the long run? Who does the weight rebalancing of the equities listed in IWDA and on what metric?

Yes you have a point, i just use gtc so not bad at all, i still quite remember during early of year when i bought near peak and crash 10%. I just play it save, i estimate can get 10 more shares annually with queuing below last done price during times like now!

I understand the Cost+GST of 10.70 for each trade will add up. But if you does not have enough cash to buy 50 shares monthly(approximately S$3500), can we just stick to like 13-15 shares per month still or consolidate and buy when you can buy 50shares?

Total saving on cost will be USD32.10? But is there other factor which make monthly buy of 13 shares more worth it?

I looked at this way, make use of the jan/feb experience, i bought too blindly in an aging bull market. Without the experience, i may rushed in buy 20 shares iwda when it spiked to 54 after fed and trump events. I have saved myself 42 dollars by being conservative now.

My own monthly budget to dca in shares is capped at s$2500, so about 20 to 30 iwda shares, not much free cash flow, we need pay housing reno and car loans.

You are confusing. You are timing the market i think. There is always be price drop like yesterday you bought at 51.85 at midnight the price went to 51.18 so is that a loss or saving

Nobody can be sure, but stocks do tend to move higher in the very long run.

Its similar to how the SPX works, its weighted by market cap and float adjusted, IOW the companies (1600+) with the most valuable free floated stocks are included in the ETF. Currently the US market makes up the bulk of IWDA (~60%), thats mostly due to years of outperformance.

U.S. listed shares constituted 62.15% of IWDA’s valuation as of December 5, 2018.

I suppose you could say that non-U.S. stock markets have generally underperformed for a while. Or some of each.

Will Iwda hold above 50? It already dropped below 52 weeks low!
Monday i queue 15 shares at 50.95 - 51.15 and will call it a day for Dec dca.
I started Iwda semi-accelarated dca only last year, i had some free cash flow on hand, so bought more monthly. That was a mistake because of the early year highs eating up my average price! My Iwda holdings are -2.8% to date in red. To those started much earlier, this drop is more cushioned am i correct?

I bought in IWDA at 57.5 when I first started. Still DCA in every month without fail.

You must also consider the USDSGD rate. In the beginning of the year when IWDA was high, USDSGD rate was low. So that complicates things. I like to keep it simple. I look at how much I deposited inside IBKR in SGD and what is my current valuation in IBKR in SGD. I started in August 2017. As of Friday, before accounting for the overnight US market plunge, I am about 10k down out of 260k deposited.
