Killing emotions

By Nithin Sasikumar in BFO #313, 25 Jun, 21

In March 2020, I’d exited all my stock investments as the first signs of the pandemic emerged. When the markets crashed, I was sitting pretty. 

But then I did something that I’ve always advised others against. I began to trade stocks using borrowed money or leverage from my broker. 

The thing with leverage is that it can magnify your gains. Imagine you have only Rs 1 lakh (US$1,347).
