Everything you need to know about Direxion's ETF Alerts program

mobile phone with text chat bubbles

Direxion offers leveraged and inverse exchange-traded funds (ETFs), as well as non-leveraged ETFs. Direxion’s daily leveraged and inverse exchange-traded funds (ETFs) seek to magnify, or provide inverse exposure to, the daily performance of broad market and sector specific indexes. Direxion also offers Single Stock ETFs, which seek to magnify, or provide inverse exposure to, the daily performance of a specified underlying stock. These funds require constant monitoring and potentially nimble trading depending on various market conditions. Direxion’s Non-Leveraged ETFs seek to track the performance of specified indexes.

Direxion's ETF Alerts are designed to help you activity monitor our funds by alerting you to significant price movements and/or volume spikes. To subscribe for alerts tailored specifically to your preferences, you will be asked to provide us with your:

Frequently Asked Questions


You can set up alerts on any of Direxion's Leveraged, Inverse and Non-Leveraged ETFs. For each Fund you select, you can choose to be alerted when the Fund reaches a chosen threshold for price movement and/or volume spikes. For price movement alerts, you can set your notification thresholds from 4-10% change (increase or decrease). For volume spikes alerts, you can set your notification threshold from 40-100% increase, in 5% increments.

You can set up to 10 total alerts. This could be 1 alert type for 10 separate funds, or 2 alert types for 5 separate funds, for example.

The methodology is as follows:

    Alert Timing – Price and volume market data is checked every five minutes during market hours (9:45 AM – 4:00 PM Eastern Time (ET) Monday through Friday). Price movement alerts may be triggered at any point starting at 9:45 AM ET. Volume spike alerts may be triggered at any point starting at 11:00 am ET in order to avoid alerts being generated by market open volume anomalies that sometimes occur. The ETF Activity Alerts do not provide you with real time market data. There will be a delay between the real time market data and the transmission of the alert.
    Price Movements – Every five minutes, starting at 9:45 AM each trading day, the current market price of your selected fund(s) will be compared to the fund’s prior day closing market prices. If that price exceeds the percent threshold that you selected as your trigger parameter, an alert will be generated and sent to you. Only one message will be generated per day for each fund/price threshold combination you establish.
    Volume Spikes – At 11:00 AM ET each trading day volume spike checks will begin and continue every five minutes thereafter. At each check the intra-day volume up to that time in the day will be compared to the 20- day moving average volume for that same time of day, and if it is greater than the percent threshold that you selected as your trigger parameter, an alert will be generated and sent to you. Only one message will be generated per day for each fund/volume spike threshold combination you establish.

The ETF Activity Alerts are for informational purposes only. You should consult your adviser or trading platform for any information before placing a trade.

Text alerts are delivered 15 minutes after the data is available. Additional delays may occur based on your wireless provider. Wireless providers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. A list of participating wireless carriers is available here.

Based on our methodology (see explanation above), we need 20 trading days of data to calculate volume spikes and send accurate SMS alerts, so we don’t allow volume spike alerts to be set up for new funds until 20 trading days after it launches. However, you can set up price movement alerts immediately after a fund launches.
