Leveraged funds involve risk, just as options and other leveraged instruments do. The eligibility requirements around leveraged funds should not exceed that of options. I believe that sufficient knowledge should be shared with an individual, and if that individual is trading only the individual's own personal funds, the individual should not need to qualify in any way to do trade those funds, regardless of the level of risk. A gambler should be allowed to gamble, even if this is to the detriment of the gambler. This is a personal freedom which should not be infringed.
