I have read a few things recently on Ultra Dow 30 Proshares that is making me lean towards making this the backbone of my IRA (20-25 year to retirement) and was wondering if anyone has some insight that i may have overlooked.I keep reading that it is set up through leverage to double the DOW whe n the DOW is up, and to lose double when the DOW is down.Even though this is riskier than a DJIA mutual fund, isn't the risk pretty negligable since I am 20-25 years from retirement?If anyone can steer me to more research that may help I would appreciate it. My goal is to put about $3,000 EVERY January into the Ultra 30 -or, the same amount into a Rule Maker company (PG, AIG, NIKE, YUM, American Express)- and then the rest of the year choose a stock from the Stock Advisor every two months, making sure I spread out the Stock Advisor picks across diverse industries that appeal to me: environment, healthcare, natural resources, technology, and metals.Does this approach sound solid? I am new at this but would like to earn about 17% return per year over the next 20-25 years.Any ideas, criticisms, etc?????Foolin,Shannon "the Cannon" "Go Dawgs!!!!"
