Buy the dip

You can apply the BTD strategy to any item where its value fluctuates. However, it mainly pertains to the stock market and cryptocurrencies.

BTD, or BTFD (the more enthusiastic variation), is a mantra for many financial traders that reflects how they invest. The strategy can be incredibly lucrative as long as you time the market well and predict the direction of a financial asset.

However, there are risks with BTD. The main one being, if you are wrong about the direction of the asset, you could lose a lot of money.
