As a trader, I understand the premise of Leverage and Margined accounts.
I understand that it is almost necessary to use leverage in order to make money from trading.
But the question is about Investing and not so much trading.
Trading can involve holding positions from seconds, to days, to weeks, to months.
However, following Buffet's advice, most investments should be around 5-10 years. With that in mind, is it necessarily a good idea to hold an investment for 5-10 years using leverage? Sure the profit will be greater, but seeing as any stock will fluctuate, can you really hold a leveraged position for 5-10 years without being margin called?
Is it wise?
