How recurring trades work

Recurring trades let you automatically invest in certain assets at specific times and for certain amounts. For many investors, recurring trades can be an extremely useful tool as they eliminate a lot of the stress and risk associated with investing.

Recurring trades are based on a popular investing principle known as dollar-cost averaging, and are an easy way to automate your investing.

By setting up recurring trades in your Finder Wallet, you can choose when to invest in cryptocurrencies, and also choose how much you want to invest each time.

Recurring trades are made using the Cash balance in your Finder Wallet, so you'll need to make sure you have enough in your wallet to cover the value of any recurring trades you have set up. The easiest way to ensure you have the right amount of funds to cover your trades is by setting up an automatic, recurring deposit from your bank account to your Finder Wallet.
