Well Nuwan, Yes it all depends on personal capacity.

However in a down market one proved strategy is to buy in the smallest quantities. If you buy  a specific company share say TPL today at price x tommorow you may be able to buy at x-1. If so better to average down.

This is how I purchased JKH in a down market twelve years ago.
