The Direxion Daily S&P Oil & Gas Exp. & Prod. Bull and Bear 3x Shares seek daily investment results, before fees and expenses, of 300% or 300% of the inverse (or opposite) of the performance of the S&P Oil & Gas Exploration & Production Select Industry Index. There is no guarantee the funds will meet their stated investment objectives.
Exploration and production companies concentrate their efforts almost exclusively on exploring for, acquiring, and producing oil and natural gas. Firms in the sector face myriad risks, including political and regulatory scrutiny, exploration risk, operational risks, and of course commodity price volatility. The flood of oil from U.S. shale producers has been weighing on prices, and the International Energy Agency has warned that OPEC and its partners may need to reconsider their plans to accommodate all the extra supply. While some consider that a case for the bears, others contend that exploration and production names are cheap, as tensions rise in the Middle East.
Whether you’re a bull or bear, Direxion offers daily 3x leveraged exposure to the S&P Oil & Gas Exploration & Production Select Industry Index. Direxion Leveraged and Inverse ETFs provide the opportunity to:
- Magnify your outlook by 3x, in either direction
- Go where there’s opportunity, with bull and bear funds for both sides of the trade; and
- Stay agile – with liquidity to trade through rapidly changing markets
These leveraged ETFs seek a return that is +300% or -300% of the return of their benchmark index for a single day. The funds should not be expected to provide three times or negative three times the return of the benchmark’s cumulative return for periods greater than a day.
