Direxion is a leading provider of exchange-traded funds that is known mostly for its leveraged and inverse ETFs. It has non-leveraged funds in its exchange-traded product line as well. The firm offers numerous ETFs, and like any successful fund provider, Direxion has quite a few ETFs in development.

Here is a list of all of Direxion's ETFs that trade on exchanges as of August 2021. Keep in mind that the firm's offerings can change periodically. The four letters before the fund name are the ETF's trading symbol.

Key Takeaways

  • Direxion offers leveraged and inverse ETFs that make it easier for traders to make specific leveraged and bearish plays on an index.
  • Investing in leveraged ETFs can result in outsized gains or losses.
  • Direxion's Daily ETFs are intended to be purchased only for short-term periods.

Leveraged and Inverse ETFs

Leveraged ETFs aim to deliver a multiple of the return of an index on a given trading day. Inverse ETFs are designed to provide the opposite of an index's performance. Leveraged inverse ETFs are a combination of both. Their goal is to produce a multiple of the inverse of an index and would be purchased by someone seeking outsized returns from a drop in an index.

Investing in leveraged ETFs can result in outsized losses in the event the market moves in the opposite direction of your bet.

The names of leveraged inverse ETFs from Direxion contain the word "Bear" because buying them acts as a bet on the market going down. The names of non-inverse leveraged ETFs from Direxion contain the word "Bull" because buying them acts as a bet on the market going up.

Direxion says its Daily ETFs should be used only for short-term trading.
