High Leverage And Industry Tops

Jim Rogers : "Whenever an industry gets hot, everybody tries to figure out how to get to be the richest. If it`s real estate, they figure out a way to leverage themselves to the full. If shipping is hot, they go and buy tankers, but they don`t put any money at all; they figure out a way to do a deal. They leverage themselves to the hilt; that`s the way to get the richest the fastest. It`s also the sign of the topping in shipping, or real estate, or wheat, or whatever it happens to be." - in Trading The World`s Markets
