SOXL

LISTED:NYSE Arca SOXL DIREXION FDS DAILY SEMICONDUCTOR BULL 3X Fund Family: Direxion Funds

 

Strategy

The investment seeks daily investment results, before fees and  expenses, of 300% of the daily performance of the PHLX Semiconductor  Sector Index.  The fund, under normal circumstances, invests at least 80% of its net  assets (plus borrowing for investment purposes) in financial  instruments, such as swap agreements, and securities of the index, ETFs  that track the index and other financial instruments that provide daily  leveraged exposure to the index or ETFs that track the index. The index  measures the performance of domestic companies engaged in the design,  distribution, manufacture and sale of semiconductors. The fund is  non-diversified.Leveraged exchange-traded funds (ETFs)  are designed to achieve their investment objective on a daily basis  meaning that they are not designed to track the underlying index over an  extended period of time. Leverage can increase volatility. Inverse ETFs  attempt to deliver returns that are the opposite of the underlying  index's returns. Typically, the longer you hold a Leveraged or Inverse  ETF, the greater your potential loss. Accordingly, Leveraged and Inverse  ETFs may not be suitable for investors who plan to hold positions for  longer than one trading session. These products are designed for highly  experienced traders who understand their risks, including the impact of  daily compounding of leveraged investment returns, and who actively  monitor their positions throughout the trading day. Please read the  Prospectus carefully before making your final investment decision..
