If I plan to buy mutual fund shares when the stock market drops, what strategies should I consider?
100% of people found this answer helpful

With mutual funds, you will always get the closing price of the day when you put your order in. I would suggest you look into ETFs instead of mutual funds. They trade throughout the day and have much lower expense ratios. We primarily use ETFs for our clients and it gives us the specific exposure we want based on our macroeconomic outlook and fundamental analysis.

That being said, if you're time horizon is long and you don't mind the ups/downs of the market, simply research some ETFs that are aligned to your risk tolerance and implement a systematic way of contributing to your account.
