URAA Provides 200% Daily Exposure to over 50 Uranium and Nuclear Energy Companies

NEW YORK — June 26, 2024 — Direxion, a leading provider of tradeable and thematic ETFs, today announced the launch of the Direxion Daily Uranium Industry Bull 2X Shares (Ticker: URAA). URAA seeks to achieve 200%, before fees and expenses, of the daily performance of the Solactive United States Uranium and Nuclear Energy ETF Select Index.

“Uranium prices have reached the highest levels in over 15 years, and the uranium market is seeing incredible growth. But there’s a significant gap between supply and demand, that begs further development and investment,” said Direxion Managing Director, Edward Egilinsky. “As public sentiment and government support shifts in favor of further expansion, URAA offers traders a unique way to make short-term bets on the nuclear energy industry.”

The global markets landscape is rapidly evolving, presenting new challenges and opportunities. As the uranium and nuclear energy industry continues to show promising growth, Direxion is committed to providing traders with timely vehicles to align with the shifting dynamics of the financial markets.
