Direxion Set To Begin Trading The “Direxion Daily Treasury Bear 3X Shares” ETF (TWOZ) Tomorrow

new7Direxion is set to begin trading the “Direxion Daily 2-Year Treasury Bear 3X Shares” ETF (TWOZ) tomorrow February 25. The Direxion Daily 2-Year Treasury Bear 3X Shares (“Fund”) seeks daily investment results, before fees and expenses, of 300% of the inverse (or opposite) of the price performance of the NYSE Current 2-Year U.S. Treasury Index (“Index”). The Fund seeks daily leveraged investment results and does not seek to achieve its stated investment objective over a period of time greater than one day. The Fund is different and much riskier than most exchange-traded funds.

Principal Investment Strategies

The Fund, under normal circumstances, creates short positions by investing at least 80% of its net assets in: futures contracts; options on securities, indices and futures contracts; equity caps, collars and floors; swap agreements; forward contracts; short positions, reverse repurchase agreements; and other financial instruments that, in combination, provide leveraged and unleveraged exposure to the Index. The Fund invests the remainder of its assets in short-term debt instruments that have terms-to-maturity of less than 397 days and exhibit high quality credit profiles, including U.S. government securities and repurchase agreements.

The Index is a one-security index comprised of the most recently issued 2-Year Treasury Note. Notes eligible for inclusion must be U.S. dollar-denominated Treasury notes with a fixed rate, non-zero coupon that are non-callable with a maturity of 2 years at issuance. The issue chosen at rebalancing is the most recently issued eligible Treasury note that settles on or before the final calendar day of the month. The official index close is calculated each trading day using the 4:00 p.m. Eastern time end-of-day bid price for the underlying bond. On days that the US equity markets close early the bond price is derived at the closing time of the New York Stock Exchange, or 1:00 p.m. EST. On days when the U.S. bond market has a suggested early close as determined by the SIFMA the bond price is derived at the suggested close of 2:00 p.m. EST. Calculations of index returns and characteristics adhere to US Treasury market trading and settlement conventions. New issuance is evaluated at each month-end rebalancing.

The Fund seeks to remain fully invested at all times consistent with its stated goal. At the close of the markets each trading day, Rafferty positions the Fund’s portfolio so that its exposure to the Index is consistent with the Fund’s investment objective. The impact of the Index’s movements during the day will affect whether the Fund’s portfolio needs to be re-positioned. For example, if the Index has fallen on a given day, net assets of the Fund should rise, meaning that the Fund’s exposure will need to be decreased. Conversely, if the Index has fallen on a given day, net assets of the Fund should rise, meaning the Fund’s exposure will need to be increased. The Fund will concentrate its investment in a particular industry or group of industries to approximately the same extent as the Index is so concentrated.

If the Fund’s benchmark moves more than 33% on a given trading day in a direction adverse to the Fund, you would lose all of your money. The Fund’s investment adviser, Rafferty Asset Management, LLC (“Rafferty” or “Adviser”), will attempt to position the Fund’s portfolio to ensure that the Fund does not lose more than 90% of its net asset value on a given trading day. The cost of such downside protection will be limitations on a Fund’s gains and thus, the Fund’s portfolio may not be responsive to index movements beyond 33% on a given trading day in a direction favorable to the Fund.
