This might sound crazy, but I have a friend who claims that Smith Barney extends him 10x leverage on his equities account as long as he does not keep his positions open over the weekend. Does this sound right to anyone else? What is the highest possible amount of borrow you can get with stocks? I was under the impression that the SEC allowed no more that 50% of the value of your equity to be margined? I am not talking about stock futures or options, I just mean straight ahead stocks.
