Going to vacation. Huge open positions. Close to margin calls. Last time I got margin call is 2000, lost big then. Wishful thinking, when I got back, I should see healthy gains. It is againt most wisdoms: over long positions in bear market. For some reason, I just feel margin calls won't be come to me, and I sleep well. Reason 1: Been there, Done that, average down is not a problem, only this time, it is close to a margin call. Reason 2: I only borrow 10% on margin. Since most of my holdings are none marginable, a magin call only force me to sell 1-2% of my holdings. Reason 3: Made too much money this year already. Don't care to earn a little bit less.
