    buy in a hike, not in a drop

    Do you think " buy in a hike, not in a drop" is clear?

    What I meant is "In stock market, one who only buy stock when a hike of stock prices appears, but doesn't buy in a drop of stock prices".

    Can I express this as "Buy bike, not drop"?

    I'm sorry, but that expression does not work well in English. Instead, say, "Buy when prices rise and not when they fall."

    :)

    "buy the hike not the drop"- is a stock market phrase that means you should buy stocks when they do good on the stock market ( they go through a price hike), don't buy them when the stocks' prices go down.


    however, "buy in a hike, not in a drop" is wrong.
