Dollar Cost Averaging Crypto on Independent Reserve

Independent Reserve has recently released a new feature called AutoTrader. AutoTrader allows you to create automated trading strategies.

Our first strategy: AutoBuy on Deposit allows you automatically buy crypto each time you deposit money. Paired with a scheduled bank transfer, it allows you to regularly buy crypto (daily, weekly, monthly, etc) without lifting a finger.


How AutoBuy benefits you

Regularly purchasing crypto allows you to dollar cost average (DCA) your Bitcoin and other crypto purchases.

Benefit of dollar cost averaging your crypto purchases:

  • You don't have to worry about trying to time the market
  • You buy smaller parcels of crypto, limiting your exposure to the volatility
  • When the price is low, your dollar buys you more, and vice versa.
If you would like to see what would have happened if you started DCA earlier, check out https://dcabt.com.


Setup dollar cost averaging in 4 simple steps:


  1. Select your preferred cryptocurrency

  2. Select what percentage of your deposit you would like to automatically allocate towards buying your preferred crypto

  3. Set the maximum spend for your strategy

  4. Set an upper limit on the price per coin your order will buy in the selected cryptocurrency.


In just a few minutes, you will then have created an automated and hands free strategy to dollar cost average into the selected cryptocurrency.

From there, you will then be able to view the strategy summary on your AutoTrader dashboard.


This is the first of many AutoTrader strategies to be launched on Independent Reserve.
