What are the opinions here on leveraged investing? I've been looking at Margin accounts and seeing how they can accelerate my investing.

I just want to know how you guys use your margin accounts. I was thinking of trading funds in the account, due to it being slightly safer, cause funds go to $0 less often then stocks lol.

The biggest thing for me is I get to trade twice as much money and keep the gains minus the borrowed capital.

Anywho anyone have any advice or tips?
