Time in the Market Beats Timing the Market

Around 90% of day traders underperform the market, supporting Warren Buffett’s idea that time in the market is better than timing the market.

The best way to maximize your time “in” the market is through regularly scheduled investments.

Did you know that FTX US lets you schedule regular buys directly from your bank account, whenever you want?

Daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, you pick the cadence for your portfolio. The best part? FTX offers some of the lowest fees on the market.

There are no fixed minimum fees on transactions, and no ACH transaction fees whatsoever.
