please forgive me if this idea is impractical. when i first started trading a couple years ago, i wrote a check using my credit card to fund a large portion of my trading account. thankfully, in the end i was able to beat the interest rate and eventually i paid off the initial credit card charge (and made a profit). although i do use margin now, i still want more money to trade with and i don't want to slave away at a job somewhere to get it. is it possible to take out a loan somewhere, tell them i'm buying a house or something, but instead use the money to trade with? with interest rates so low now, i don't think it would be hard to beat the payments. i know this is risky, but risk = reward, and i'm willing to take the chance. i'm just looking for input on this. what would be the most practical way of doing something like this? thanks!
