For you risk takers out there who like a bigger bang for your buck, Direxion Funds has launched several ETFs that offer 3x leverage in small caps, large caps, energy and financials.Â There is no way I’d begin trading these in this kind of market unless I’m day trading for a few hours. .. and certainly I’d want to see liquidity of a few hundred thousand shares before getting in.Â The small and large cap Direxion ETFs which began trading late last week are already proving to be very popular.Â The Direxion Bullish Large Cap 3x ETF (BGU) traded nearly 500K shares today while the Direxion Bearish Large Cap 3x ETF (BGZ) traded nearly 250K shares today.
Here is the list 300% leveraged ETFs currently trading from Direxion Funds:
Direxion Large Cap Bull 3x ETF (BGU) (482K shares traded today)
Direxion Large Cap Bear 3x ETF (BGZ) (242K shares traded today)
Direxion Small Cap Bull 3x ETF (TNA) (209K shares traded today)
Direxion Small Cap Bear 3x ETF (TZA) (132K shares tradedÂ today)
Direxion Energy Bull 3x ETF (ERX) (38K shares traded today)
Direxion Energy Bear 3x ETF (ERY) (28K shares traded today)
Direxion Financials Bull 3x ETF (FAS) (30K shares traded today)
Direxion Financials Bear 3x ETF (FAZ) (14K shares traded today)
The energy and financial ETF’s are way too illiquid right now but I’d imagine in a few weeks they will be liquid enough to trade as well.
