Also my brokerage lets me buy etfs with margin!
so I can do margin loans in retirement instead of realizing capital gains!
Reverse mortgages for investors anyone! It will be big! The next big thing. i can see it coming we can get all theses retired fools to never actually sell but use leverage instead! and pay 9% interest when they could other wise paid 0% we could sucker all theses dementia patients into tax effecient plans! but bank effecient plans! if no one sells the market will never go down!
tl:Dr; I have no clue if mutual funds are allowed to be bought on margin, but some etfs can be. this might be beneficial for some for various reasons.
