"You're kidding, right?"

I was not. When the market tanks so badly, no one but God know which ones are done and which ones will rebound, which ones died in the forest fire and which ones will live and grow stronger than before.

I looked at a lot of these kinds of things and asked myself, "What should I have done, had I known what I know now? I concluded that there's no fool proof way of knowing in advance which ones will survive and what the new leaders will be. It's almost impossible to beat UPRO in a bull market, even with FANTASTIC picks.

Just buy the index and then leverage.
