UPRO 38.80/2.36 = 16.4x
SPY 260.00/92.34 = 2.8x
Leverage: 5.8


Interesting, though actually reaching 2009 valuation levels will come with much fear that might make this choice difficult to execute on. That said, it's down only 3x SPY from the peak (http://schrts.co/b6pKKm) and I guess one could limit max DD by investing only 1/3 in UPRO and 2/3 in cash.

So no more conventional portfolios out there like SPY, VTI, VXUS, RSP?
