It depends on the market situation. If it is a bear market after a black swan, do lump sum investing. If it is a bull market with a lot of volatility, do dollar cost average investing. However, one may consider trading the market instead of investing.

Lump sum is good for bull market and dca is good for bear market. If i have lump sum of money, i will lump sum 80%-90% for investment and keep the rest for market correction.

Bull market means the market is going up. Bear market means market is going down. Bull attack with his horns upwards and bear attack by swinging his paws downwards.
