Is Margin Loan a good capital investment?

To be able to bank big profits you also have to risk big amounts of money. Unfortunately most traders, especially newbies don't have that much capital begin with. Apart from that, trading will most likely be a sideline other than a day job to have a stable source of income. One of the ways to get extra cash is to borrow from a bank. This is called a margin loan. The question is, should you risk a loan in hopes of earning a big payout?

Trading or investing with a margin loan highly depends in knowing what you are doing and what are the inherent risks involved. After all this money is just borrowed. If you can't afford to lose it, but end up losing it in trading, you have to earn twice as much to offset your losses and pay the bank. One of the worst steps to do is to make quick money based speculations.

However, if you do have a plan that will enable you to settle this debt and still be able to effectively trade in the stock market then go ahead. Just remember that its not just about trading with big money, but also executing a profitable trade.
