# A theoretical look at the last 1000 days of DCA (dollar cost averaging)

I ran a simulation of performing DCA based on a ***start date*** going back 50, 100, 150... 1000 days. Here are the results. The simulation assumes a 0.50% taker fee on each buy and investing \$1 a day. You can simply multiply all by 20 to do \$20 a day. The ***min*** column assumes you bought at the worst time each day (24h high), and the ***max*** column assumes you bought at the best time each day (24h low). The ***APR*** is what standard APR would be required to yield the same returns over the same period. The brackets show that your final value is below the amount invested. For example, if you would have started your DCA at the ATH (756 days ago) your would still have realized an 8-10% (apr) gain. If you would have started at the 52w high (200 days ago), you would obviously still be underwater, but not by as much as most would expect. It's an interesting example of how DCA can "iron out" some of the volatility. Assuming a current BTC spot price of **8070.00** and that you ***started*** your DCA so many ***days ago*** **Days Ago** | **max** | **APR** | **min** | **APR** :--: | :--: | :--: | :--: | :--: 50 | 55.62 | 117.594% | 55.00 | 100.575% 100 | 103.70 | 14.199% | 102.39 | 9.005% 150 | \[145.73\] | -6.779% | \[143.78\] | -9.788% 200 | \[184.10\] | -14.035% | \[180.33\] | -17.215% 250 | \[235.19\] | -8.530% | \[229.71\] | -11.624% 300 | 320.08 | 8.200% | 314.34 | 5.845% 350 | 429.68 | 23.848% | 424.52 | 22.299% 400 | 541.75 | 31.890% | 534.54 | 30.287% 450 | 621.70 | 29.973% | 612.04 | 28.333% 500 | 683.63 | 25.653% | 674.11 | 24.372% 550 | 742.91 | 22.082% | 732.43 | 20.936% 600 | 802.64 | 19.365% | 791.39 | 18.344% 650 | 852.15 | 16.423% | 839.90 | 15.480% 700 | 897.76 | 13.854% | 883.25 | 12.891% 750 | 934.72 | 11.310% | 916.62 | 10.256% 800 | 977.97 | 9.598% | 957.01 | 8.520% 850 | 1066.08 | 10.215% | 1042.08 | 9.143% 900 | 1177.55 | 11.518% | 1149.89 | 10.448% 950 | 1342.86 | 14.222% | 1306.95 | 13.039% 1000 | 1588.39 | 18.399% | 1546.13 | 17.2...
