trading 100% of margin

  1. I've been risking 3% of my total cash balance, and I'm up a nice 27% YTD (last 4 months) but I was thinking about risking 3% of my cash + margin.

    does anyone trade like this, and is it wrong too? I know the leverage is a two-sided sword, but if I risk only 3% I should be ok in the long run.

    Do any of the more experienced traders here on ET, trade this way?

  2. If you can trade like that then why even introduce margin in the equation. You'll never have to worry about a margin call. Good job! What market are you trading?
