Robinhood is unveiling a new feature that allows its users to make automatic recurring crypto investments if they choose to do so. Many people like to use automated investing, which is otherwise known as “set it and forget it,” so they do not have to manually make the decision to purchase assets. The set-it-and-forget-it strategy is a common one that allows people to specify an amount of money to invest in an asset at a particular interval. For example, you could choose to invest $50 every Monday in a particular stock, ETF, or virtual coin. Automated investing at regular intervals is not only convenient, but it eliminates the problem of trying to time the market. If you buy a little bit of a particular asset on a regular basis, sometimes you will end up investing when the price is down and other times you will end up investing when the price is up. This technique is also called “dollar-cost averaging.” This strategy can be especially valuable for more volatile assets that tend to have big shifts in prices — such as cryptocurrencies. Unfortunately, Robinhood investors didn’t have the option to use set-it-and-forget-it investing with cryptocurrencies.
