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. :lol:


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