I know it doesn't happen often but I am just trying to understand why this has occurred in the past and what may cause it again. https://www.portfoliovisualizer.com/backtest-portfolio?s=y&timePeriod=2&startYear=2018&...

Re: Lifecycle Investing - Leveraging when young

I think you mentioned previously that you don’t plan to rebalance. Are you planning to roll the leap at expiration? Also, how are you planning to manage the cash received from your day job?

Re: Lifecycle Investing - Leveraging when young

Can you provide some insight into which specific LEAPS you are buying (which S&P ETF, how far out, strike price, etc)? Are you using any stop limits to in case of a large drop?
