Margin debt continues to inch higher toward the May '18 record of $668bn.

The S&P500 index was down in both September and October but margin debt is up in both, to $659bn. It is actually up a massive $180bn since March low (in both margin debt and stocks). A new high in margin debt is probable this month, as SPX up 11% so far - source: Hedgeopedia, The Market Ear
