The next screen will confirm that you have set up your recurring buy with a credit card. You can view the assets you just bought in your account by tapping View assets.

Tapping Recurring plan details will display all the information about your recurring buy order. Tap Manage to edit the details. You’ll find the option to temporarily pause dollar-cost average buys and resume them later, and cancel the plan entirely. 

Take the stress out of crypto investing with OKX recurring buys

Dollar-cost averaging is a popular strategy for both traditional and crypto investors because of its simplicity. By entering an investment over a period of time rather than with a single purchase, you are not tied to a single entry price. If the price goes down after your first recurring buy, your next will be lower, and your investment’s cost basis will be the average of the two prices. 

Thanks to its ease of use, recurring buys are ideal for less experienced investors or those that don’t want to spend great lengths of time analyzing previous price action for the perfect entry point. When using OKX’s recurring buy with a credit card, you can set it and forget it!
