“We understand that market direction matters, so we strive to offer an alternative to static investment strategies while delivering exposure to the various markets in which traders have expressed high levels of interest,” said Sylvia Jablonski, Managing Director at Direxion. “We currently offer 3X leveraged bull funds for healthcare and natural gas stocks and both 3X bull and 3X bear funds for biotech stocks. These new bear funds will complement this existing suite of products to give traders a more nimble way to take advantage of short-term opportunities in these sectors.”

Like all leveraged ETFs, these Funds are intended only for traders with an in-depth understanding of the risks associated with seeking leveraged investment results, and who plan to actively monitor and manage their positions. There is no guarantee that the Funds will meet their objectives.
