Direxion Monthly Emerging Markets Bull 2X Fund










    2.19 / 1.41*


    Nov 01, 2005


The Direxion Monthly Emerging Markets Bull 2X Fund seeks monthly investment results, before fees and expenses, of 200% of the calendar month performance of the MSCI Emerging Markets IndexSM. 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

Key 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 2x 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.

Target Index

The MSCI Emerging Market IndexSM (NDUEEGF) is a free float-adjusted market capitalization weighted index that is designed to represent the performance of large- and mid-capitalization securities across emerging markets countries. One cannot directly invest in an index.

An investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Returns for performance under one year are cumulative, not annualized. For the most recent month-end performance please visit the fund's website at www.direxion.com.

Because of ongoing market volatility, fund performance may be subject to substantial short-term changes. For additional information, see the fund's prospectus.
