Long term leverage and capital

Discussion in 'Stocks' started by ES.Dreamer, Jun 30, 2010.

  1. I want to buy SPY as a long term position, over 1 year period. However I want to make good use of leveraged instruments for this, like ES futures, yet I want to receive the tax benefits of long term capital gains. Unfortunately ES rolls over quickly and the deepest expiration is not further enough, so my investment will show short term buying and selling as I do the rollovers.

    Which alternatives do I have ?

    Buy call LEAPS ... :)
  3. Can you please be kind enough to suggest the structure for it ?

    I understand leaps are long term options with expiration years ahead with potential high premium but that's as far as my knowledge goes.

    Thank you
