I am thinking about borrowing some money from the bank to buy shares. Then i remember there's an option to apply for a marginal loan where i don't have to fork out the full amount of capital. With the marginal loan, I'm up for a margin call if the value of the shares drop 20% and with the investment loan, I'm up for interest on the capital i borrow (is it rue I can claim interest on the latter loan as well?). Besides that, are there any other benefits applying either? And anyone gone thru a similar situation?
thanks in advance.
