Direxion Announces Exposure and Risk Increase on Single Stock Daily Leveraged ETFs
Six ETFs to Increase Daily Leverage from 1.5X to 2X
NEW YORK — February 2, 2024 — Direxion has announced it will increase the leverage point and risk level of six single stock ETFs. The changes will heighten the risk of any investment in a Fund because they will result in an increase in the Fund's leverage. Currently, the six single stock ETFs seek daily leveraged investment results, before fees and expenses, of 150% of the daily performance of each ETF’s underlying security. (“1.5X”). Effective on or around April 2, 2024, each of the ETFs will seek daily leveraged investment results, before fees and expenses, of 200% of the daily performance of the ETF’s underlying security (“2X”).

They seek daily goals and should not be expected to track the underlying index over periods longer than one day. They are not suitable for all investors and should be utilized only by sophisticated investors who understand leverage risk and who actively manage their investments.
