Thanks for the input guys :)

I know I have the stomach for the risk and I am working in Concert with two experienced investors, if I do decide to go with Margin it wont be for about another year. I want to up my original nest egg before leveraging it, if I do.

But thanks for the very strong warnings against leveraging. Knowing me and how I just like to do things once I make up my mind, I will probably leverage my portfolio. But I will very strongly consider leveraging a smaller portion then the entire thing... that way if I only leverage say 15% and I consider that my "risk" capital and I take a serious hit there... it isnt as bad as 100% of my capital...

Also it doesnt help that I think the markets are going up and we will be having a nice run up for a bit.. but anywho thanks for the input and warnings guy :)
