# Zero Cost Averaging Calculator

Last updated: Monday, May 01, 2023

The Zero Cost Averaging strategy is a way in which investors can make their investment risk free. Say you bought 100 shares at $10 each, and now the stock is trading at$30 per share, if you sell enough shares to get your initial capital back and keep the remaining ones in the market, you would have made your investment risk free.

Pros: you are getting the remaining shares for free, no risk, no sleepless nights

Cons: you might miss out on opportunities to make even more profits if the stock price keeps going up

The formula for Zero Cost Averaging is defined as:
$$Shares_{sell}$$ $$=$$ $$\dfrac{Price_{purchase} \times Shares_{total}}{Price_{current}}$$
$$Shares_{sell}$$: The number of shares you need to sell
$$Shares_{total}$$: The number of shares you have in total
$$Price_{purchase}$$: The price at which you purchased your shares
$$Price_{current}$$: The current share price
