Should Investors Fear Margin Debt?

SYNOPSIS
• The margin debt story is viewed by some as a
predictive indicator for a future equity market
crash.
• Margin debt can exacerbate a sell-off, but
there is no statistical evidence that margin
debt levels can predict an equity market
decline.
• Although the use of margin debt is never
recommended for individual investors,
ignore the fear mongering around such a
meaningless data point.
