How much should I allocate to each signal?

The best allocation and diversification strategy for you depends on your personal situation and risk tolerance.

But a good place to start for most people is a an equal weight allocation. (e.g. investing $100 or $500 every week). This will provide adequate diversification and dollar-cost averaging over time.

If you already have a sizeable account and want to adopt the Weekly Stocktip portfolio, we recommend using dollar-cost averaging over time, to minimize risk.

Use Dollar-cost averaging to:
Avoid mistiming the market
Slowly but surely build wealth even if you're starting out with a small stake.
Always think longer term

There are 2 important parts to diversification.

Firstly, don't put all your eggs in one basket. (this is the part you have to manage)

The second part is making sure your portfolio is adequately diversified across multiple sectors and industries, so if any single sector has a crash you will be protected.
Weekly Stocktip already handles this part for you with our internal diversification strategy, making sure you're not too expected to a particular sector.

Always make sure you have adequate diversification and dollar-cost average over time to minimize risk.
