Why should I invest via SIP?

SIPs are a way to develop a discipline in your investing. It is a financial instrument which by its very nature, encourages the habit of regular saving and investing. It is a tool that requires you to invest a little bit of money at regular intervals of time. Investing for the long term is a skill that is developed through practice. SIP is a way to set aside a fixed amount at intervals that can continue on for a few months or even years. SIPs also help in averaging out the cost of investing and guarding yourself against extreme volatility in the market.
