I use fixed-rate, low-interest lines of unsecured credit to finance the purchase of options. Unsecured lines of credit are issued through unsecured credit cards. I
currently use two $40,000 lines of unsecured credit, which have fixed-interest rates of between 3.4 percent and 4.5 percent. I am able to obtain these low-rate lines of unsecured credit because I have zero consumer debt and a credit score in the top 5 percent. The real beauty in using unsecured lines of credit, instead of secured credit lines such as a home equity line of credit (HELOC), is that you do not have to put your home on the line and pay those exorbitant closing costs that lenders generally charge borrowers for the privilege of doing business with them. In fact, the most that I have ever had to pay when using an unsecured line of credit was a $50 transfer fee.
