Well it seems Leverage ETFs are something of a sore spot for some. I would agree with most of you in that I can simply invest in index funds and well off companies and ride the market for 40 years to hopefully a healthy and substantial retirement. I was just curious about what you Fools thought. Thank you for your input. I have read numerous posts and several articles and most preach having nothing to do with them. I'm going to get into a S&P 500 index for my roth and do my best to max it out per the TMF recommendation. I'm just wanting to get started the best I can. Being in the military, there are no matching investing programs to dump money into. Also, if I'm lucky, the airlines normally don't offer any retirement package either. So again thanks to everyone for their input. I'm sure these funds do have a use in some aspects but I'll choose the time tested route.
