Have you considered using futures/ or ultra longETF’s/ in order to leverage your portfolio?

2 Four Pillars

Hi DGI – I haven’t considered futures or ultra long ETFs. They would certainly be a valid way to do it but I find that using a HELOC is the easiest way for me.

The other factor is taxes – dividends in Canadian companies are taxed much less heavily so my plan involves buying only Cdn dividend stocks.
