The Direxion Monthly High Yield Bull 1.2X Fund seeks monthly investment results, before fees and expenses, of 120% of the calendar month performance of the Solactive High Yield Beta Index. There is no guarantee the fund will meet its stated investment objective.
Direxion’s Leveraged Index-based Funds seek to provide monthly returns which are a multiple of the returns of the relevant benchmark. In practice, this means that Leveraged Index-based Funds react to gains by increasing market exposure and react to losses by decreasing market exposure.
Strategy & Benefits
You know that TRADING is different than investing. But the opportunity to take advantage of short-term trends is only won, if you get the direction right.
Whether you’re a bull or a bear, Direxion is with you. Our leveraged and inverse Mutual Funds are tools built to help you:
- Provide monthly targeted magnified exposure to a diversified set of benchmark indexes
- Use precise derivative options to seek to optimize benchmark trading accuracy
- Seek to reduce the impact of compounding through the use of monthly rebalancing
Leveraged mutual funds pursue monthly leveraged investment objectives which means they are riskier than alternatives which do not use leverage. They seek to magnify the returns of their benchmarks on a monthly basis and should not be expected to track the underlying index over periods longer than one month. They are not suitable for all investors and should be utilized only by investors who understand leverage risk and who actively manage their investments.
