People who have a million or so in your investment accounts - have you tried taking a loan against it to invest in S&P500? I could do this if I bought a home, but because of personal situation, can’t buy a home now. Still want to make the most of low interest rates now. Thanks in advance folks!

Why would you do this at peak market heights? The time to do this was spring 2020

Well you know it’s not at a discount . By definition an all time high is a peak until it goes higher.

Can’t understand the question. First part is talking about taking a loan against your portfolio to invest and then suddenly in second statement, you started talking about a home. Not sure what you are trying to say. BTW, read up on margin calls to read more about your first question.

Most brokerages that offer securities backed loans have explicit provisions forbidding use of the loaned funds for purchasing equities. It creates a dangerous situation if the market crashes, which, particularly since 2008, many firms are looking to avoid.

I am coach for someone in the USDC. I was talking about the pension and I was told that they only get the 401. I looked at our 401k plan and noticed the match is very poor. The match is .25. So basically if a practitioner makes $100,000 and gives 6%, then D only puts in $1500 annually. This is horrible and if I was being honest then I would advise people to look to a company that cares for their future. I googled average matches and Deloitte is not even close to the average.
