Markets are going down and I expect everybody with a brain to invest their available liquidity in the following months. I know, this is not the first time you hear that, but people just do not listen! If you are a bit gutsy, the best time for leveraging might come pretty soon. Yeah, I think we should all borrow money to invest if things continue to go down this way. Why is that? Here are a few reasons:
Markets will not go down forever
Right now, markets are being influenced by the subprime lender crisis (Keep in mind that I called this one back in April!). As we are living in a bull market for several years, most stocks are at their highest peak, everybody thinks this is the end of the party and the bear will not take time to show up. I could not disagree more on this statement.

If we are really entering into a bear market and the price of stocks will continue falling, it is still the best time to leverage. Why is that? It is simply because you need to test your mental capacity of supporting potential losses. Leveraging strategies were doing pretty good for the past 5 years as the market was always going up. The tough part about leverage is when things turn sour.
If you borrow a small amount to invest right now, you will have a great chance to practice your mental toughness against the market. Most people lose money on the street as they buy and sell at the wrong time. They buy high and sell low.
Then, if you borrow to invest now, two things could happen. The first one will produce immediate profit as markets were going into a small correction. The second possibility is a bear market. You will then have the opportunity to practice your tolerance against losing stocks.
The key here is to invest an amount that will not kill your monthly cash flow so you can keep up with the investment loan payments and that you do not expect to need this money anytime soon. Then, you can leave your investments in the market and wait until you make good profit. A small amount such as 10K-25K should be considered a good starting point. Another possibility is to start a Smith Manoeuvre. Please make sure to validate your strategy with a professional before you go ahead with.
