lol its kind of funny that its become a popular investment vehicle during one of the longest bull runs near the market all time high.

I think that’s true with all the indexes. I think indexes are a very common form of performance chasing these days

100% agree. I hate debt for some reason, even mortgage debt. It must all be gone. Just an instinct thing. 

Other than that, I just BTFD. All the time. Always be buying. BUY ALL THE THINGS!!! cheeky

If you’re always buying all the things, you’ll sooner or later left with no cash. And I’ll be your only friend on bid once when you start selling all the things. devil

My personal investment strategy is to pay off debt and save a decent amount - at least $1000. From here on it’s simple to set up an automated schedule to invest in a Roth IRA (stocks, precious metals, and other alternative assets) or 401k (if you have an employer). I would then invest the rest of my money into more businesses, and the rest into real estate.

Yes. It was a joke. 

I buy very few things, until volatility gets high and people are desperate to sell.   That being said I have missed out on a lot of this 10  year bull market for sure.

FCOJ, just keep buying…

what do you mean to double-leverage? you’ve borrowed twice as much as the cost of the ETF? how do you insist on paying this back and how have you taken out a loan to finance this?

The ETF uses the assets they have, to borrow using the assets as collateral. As long as the stock doesn’t drop in value by 50%, they can pay back what they borrowed.

It’s a little bit more complicated in practice, but not by a whole bunch.

They generally use derivatives. 

Yeah don’t buy the double leverage etfs on margin ha
