When it comes to yield, pick high quality business. Don't be sway by the high dividend yield...

Haha, i do that as well.
Based on their recommendations, i buy enough from them and then self-service (one-time/RSP) on FSM for bulk of the investments.
Give them enough biz to keep them engaged.

But i am interested to explore in the leverage and low interests rate to boost my passive income (PIMCO Fixed Income ~4%) even more.
Leverage only if you have high risk appetite. Can you withstand 5 figures unrealised loss and constant margin calls like my current situation?

It really depends on the amount of capital that you have. 5 figures in the context of a 6 figure capital is more significant compared to a denominator capital of 7 figure. And one's mental state can be impact by too high a unrealized loss to the point that it hampers with decision making when trading.

COE prices are up! This time is really different, compared to the global financial crisis.

What has current COE prices going up got to do with the gfc? There's no mass retrenchment or market crash yet

They're gamblers. Also got big winners. One guy bought 75k worth of Tesla calls and it's now worth 4 million
