If you dollar cost average (invest regularly) in a market, you will benefit when you buy the dip and you will see recent purchases gain value quickly in a rising market. When the market drops substantially and you get your money in on a down day you can also recognize gains quickly.
Consider this: When the market dropped 50% in 2008-2009, investors who bought stock during this time were already well positioned to recoup their investment when the market bounced back. You can benefit percentage-wise from any drop. You buy with the market down 10% and you have a return of 11.1% when it returns to its previous level!
