Leveraged ETFs - Opportunities, Risks and Dangers. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/Exchange-traded-funds.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! How risky are leveraged exchange traded funds? These instruments are only for day trading or holding positions for a few days at most. When buying into a leveraged ETF not only are there trading costs but in some cases you also have the interest expense of the debt used to achieve the actual leverage. But why are leveraged ETFs dangerous? The issue with leveraged ETFS is that you can end up losing all your money while waiting for the ETF to move in your direction. Let's suppose that over 50 trading days, half of those days the index you're tracking moves up by 5%, and half of those days it moves down by 5%. If you are investing in a normal unleveraged exchange traded fund, at the end of that time you will still have 93.9% of your capital. As such, you can absord that and wait till it reverses. But if you're in a 3x leveraged ETF, on down days your ETF will go down by 15%. On positive days it will go up by 15%. One up-down cycle and you end up with 2.25% less of your capital. (1.15*0.85=0.9775.). Two up-down cycles, and you have lost 4.45%. After the 50 days period only 56.6% of your capital remains. Can you really recover? That's the big issue - if an index doesn't go anywhere and is range-bound, the leveraged ETF will end up underwater. And of course if the index moves in the opposite direction to your 'bet', you could end up getting wiped out rapidly. As such you only win if a move up happens swiftly... So, that's the big problem: if an index treads water, the leveraged version will lose money. And of course, if the index goes down substantially, as it could in a bear market, you could get quickly wiped out. Basically, you only win if a move up happens quickly, which I assure you is not always the case. So is a 3x ETF a bad investment? If you get the direction right, it’s a good investment. Due to the derivatives used in the composition of the ETF, they tend to under perform their leverage number. IOW, a 3x ETF might return 2.25 or 2.5 or 2,75 times the underlying index but that’s still significantly better than a 1x ETF. There’s also the issue of beta decay. In terms of achieving the leverage return, 2x and 3x leveraged ETFs are effective for short term trading. Just remember that leverage is a double (or triple edged) sword. If you can make 3X if right, you can lose 3X if wrong. In this series: ETFs, What is An Exchange Traded Fund?

Exchange traded funds (ETFs) are just like stocks, but there is a major problem with them. Subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/user/PeterLeedsPennyStock Do not buy or sell any ETF until you watch this warning. Subscribe to our channel, to learn more about investing, penny stocks, and profits from high-quality, low-priced shares: https://www.youtube.com/user/PeterLeedsPennyStock ETFs are a lot like a mutual fund, in that they hold a group of investments (stocks + bonds). The beauty is that they trade just like stocks, and have lower commissions, and you can trade any time. Each ETF is designed to mimic a specific investment or group of investments. So, for example, GLD attempts to copy the movements of gold prices. If you think gold will go higher, you can buy GLD. If you believe the economy of Africa will grow, you could buy AFK, if you want more exposure to Germany, you could purchase EWG, and so on. Warning number 1, and this isn't what I need to tell you about in this video, sometimes trading can be thin, so use limit orders rather than market orders if you are going to trade them, especially true in the very early or very last trading minutes each day. Anyway, here is the problem with ETFs which can cost you a huge amount of money. ETFs are actively managed, being continually rebalanced so that their holdings reflect the intention of the ETF. For example, INDA is meant to mirror the action of a wide range of companies in India. It involves 85% of the Indian stock market, and needs to be adjusted on a daily basis to make sure it is staying true to its purpose. With these adjustments comes a small management fee. Typically this expense will be very small, usually a fraction of a percent, and is typically less than a common mutual fund. - straight-up ETFs are pretty good, but leveraged ETFs will destroy your investment. - if tracking oil prices, USO will move very similarly to oil. If oil goes up 10%, the ETF may only rise 9.8%. This slight loss is barely noticeable, and it is called slippage. Not a huge deal, but this happens every day. When you get into leveraged ETFs, this becomes a major problem. For example, UWTI is designed to provide 3 times the return of WTI oil. If WTI goes up 1%, UWTI tries to rise 3%. Likewise, if WTI falls 1%, UWTI would fall about 3 times that much. The problem is slippage. In reality if WTI rises 2%, UWTI is designed to climb three times that much, so 6%. However, in reality it may only gain 5.95%, for example. Then, if WTI falls 2%, it is back to where it originally started, but UWTI is designed to fall 3 times that amount, or 6%. In reality, it will likely fall a tiny bit more than 6. These slight shortfalls get applied every day, so if you lose a fraction of your investment, again and again and again, you are suffering a slow bleed. You probably wouldn't even notice it on any single day, but that is why the long term charts of any leverage ETF are always in a slow, steady downtrend. ETFs, especially the leveraged ones, are great for making a very short term call, but should never be used for long term investing. For example, if you expect oil prices to spike, you could play it by buying UWTI, but do it only as a short term trade. If you hold for weeks or months, you will almost certainly lose . Protect yourself when trading ETFs. Consider avoiding buying or selling in the first few or final few minutes. And do not hold ETFs for extended lengths of time, especially the leveraged ones. .

A set of defined reactions is the best way to use the high volatility of leveraged ETFs for greater profit. Contrary to media warnings, leveraged ETFs beat the market over many time periods even with a simple buy-and-hold approach. A look at my performance tables proves it. We can improve upon their performance by running 2x and 3x leveraged ETFs through defined reactions that extract profit from their higher highs and add capital to their lower lows. ___________________________ Want more information like this?

A combination of both incompetence and misinformation leads many investors into a scenario where they purchase an LETF, the underlying index increases, and they end up losing money. This video provides a comprehensive introduction to the product and its failings as a longer term investment vehicle. As always, it is best to speak with a registered financial advisor or contact the provider of the LETF for further questions. If you have any questions, comment below and hopefully I can help you better understand LETFs.

Inverse and Leverage ETFs. Let's talk about leveraged exchange traded funds. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/Exchange-traded-funds.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! An inverse ETF basically inverses the performance so if you've got an inverse of the S&P500, if the S&P500 goes up then the S&P500 goes down. A leveraged ETF magnifies the gain - it aims to make 2 or 3 times the movement of the underlying asset it is tracking. You can also have an inverse leveraged ETF... TBT - aims to do twice the inverse of the 20+ Year Treasury Bond SDS - aims to do twice the inverse of the S&P 500 i.e. UltraShort S&P500 ETF TZA - aims to do triple the inverse of the Small Cap i.e. Direxion's Daily Small Cap Bear 3X Shares FAZ - aims to do triple the inverse of the Financials i.e. Direxion Financial Bear 3X (FAZ) ETF UVXY - VIX ETF but double.

The funds give investors a simple, liquid means of hedging and/or amplifying their exposure to the market. Or do they? Due to the effects of compounding, the long-term returns of leveraged and short ETFs may not match up with investor expectations. In this webinar, Paul Amery, Managing Editor of ETF.com, will explain how European leveraged/short ETFs work, how they can be used in a portfolio and what investors must look out for. He'll run through the options currently available to investors, discuss the pros and cons of each approach and consider other alternatives to achieving hedged exposure.

Main ETFs to trade http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/Exchange-traded-funds.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! There are probably hundreds if not thousands of ETFs but a number of them aren't very liquid, however I've picked up 8 of the top volume ETFs. An ETF tracks the underlying or a basket of stocks or a broad sector. VXX - this tracks the short-term VIX futures. VIX is a volatility index, based on options (expectation of volatility). Instead of trading VIX futures which is a complex area, an easier way is to trade the VXX ETF. When people are frightened you will see a volatilty spike / VIX spiking up and vice versa. SPY - this tracks the S&P 500 ETF i.e. the top 500 American companies - very handy to use if you are bullish or bearish on the USA economy. EEM - Emerging Markets ETF - basket of stocks - China, Brazil..etc GDX - an ETF tracking the Gold Miners GLD - an ETF tracking the Gold price. QQQ - that is the Nasdaq 100 - tech is volatile and QQQ is a good way to get exposure to the Nasdaq 100 USO - an ETF tracking the Crude Oil price. IWM - an ETF tracking Russell 2000 - tracking biggest 2000 stocks in the USA - quite volatile potentially. EWZ - Brazil ETF fund - exposure to Brazil - will pick up Brazilian stocks In this series: ETFs, What is An Exchange Traded Fund?

What is an ETF? What is an exchange traded fund? http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/Exchange-traded-funds.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! An ETF is an exchange traded fund. This is a basket of stocks or a basket of assets wrapped up and priced as one item. You have for instance something like SPY; this is an S&P 500 ETF - this is an exchange traded fund that tracks the actual movements of the S&P 500. If the S&P500 goes up 1% the ETF will go up 1%. It is quite more cost effective to buy ETFs than futures. We can also have groups of commodities - for instance USO that tracks oil. (USO) is in fact an exchange-traded security who purpose is to track the daily price movements of West Texas Intermediate ("WTI") light, sweet crude oil...

Some of the leveraged funds pay dividends and have a substantial adjustment payout once each year. DXD (double inverse DOW) 'dividend' payouts for 2008... http://finance.yahoo.com/q/hp?s=DXD&a=06&b=13&c=2006&d=02&e=25&f=2009&g=v 23-Dec-08 $ 16.055 Dividend 24-Sep-08 $ 3.823 Dividend 24-Jun-08 $ 0.138 Dividend 25-Mar-08 $ 0.223 Dividend --------------------------------------------- Total divs = $20.24 Here's an actual example of buying the DXD inverse double etf, which covers the period around big dividend of $16.055....... 12/2008 Bought DXD @ 69.03 12/2008 dividend of $16.055 per share 02/2009 Sold DXD @ 74.7 All in all, it was a bonanza as I sold the stock at a profit and pocketed the big div too. By comparison, the DIA (etf tracking the DOW long) went from $89 on Dec 8th, down to $72 on Feb 24th. In conclusion.... DIA (DOW long etf) dropped 19% during the period. DXD (dbl shrt etf) gained only 5.67% but also paid out a div of 23% (based on the buy price paid) My own observations......... 1. It is true that pullbacks in the double inverse etfs lose more than they make in the previous gains...assuming that the DOW or whatever simply rose and then fell back to the same place. Short term trading is the only way to use the double etfs. 2. They are, however, extremely useful if you have any luck or talent with market timing. 3. The return is not double on a buy and hold, but most likely will become a disappointment as value erodes. Need to get some good entries and exits to avoid retracements which eat away at the returns. 4. This kind of problem is not unique to double etfs, USO (oil fund) for example has been a terrible way to pick a bottom in oil as contango (futures higher than spot) meant that USO made new lows even when the underlying oil price was well above its bottom. (My video on contango and USO) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKsmaykLpvE

http://optionalpha.com/show27 - In the past couple years inverse and leveraged ETFs have been some of the most highly traded securities because of their seemingly “cool” concept for speculation. I mean where else can you get such high exposure to financials or gold than with a 3X bull/bear ETF? In this session of The Option Alpha Podcast I’ll going to dig deep into how these products are both structured and priced so that you have a complete and full understanding of the “drag” they carry before investing. No this is not to say that you shouldn’t trade inverse and leveraged ETFs because I have before and will in the future. Instead, my goal is to make you smarter about how they derive their pricing so that your timeline for trading them might be adjusted or altered.

This video attempts to both debunk as well as confirm some of the negative stigmas associated with buying & holding leveraged ETFs for more than a day trade. Real-world examples are used with two of the most notorious offenders when it comes to the price decay that can result when holding a leveraged ETF for an extended period of time, LABU & LABD (3x bullish & bearish biotech ETFs) as well as NUGT & DUST (3x gold miners ETFs)

ETFs (or Exchange Traded Funds) have become increasingly popular over the last 15 years. ETFs are typically used to track and replicate the performance of an index, such as the S&P 500, the Russell 2000, or the Dow Jones. ETFs are popular, because investors can invest in a basket of securities that provides diversification but with the simplicity of being a single stock. In recent years, many companies have also created leveraged or inverse ETFs. Leveraged ETFs try to replicate the performance of a particular index, but attempt to replicate the performance by doubling or even tripling the index. As an example, the Proshares Ultra Russell 2000 ETF seeks to double the performance of the Russell 2000 Index. Inverse ETFs also try to replicate the opposite (or even multiple opposites) of a particular index. For example, Ultrashort QQQ Shares seeks a return of two times the inverse (-2x) of the daily performance of the NASDAQ-100 Index. Leveraged and inverse ETFs can be useful investment tools for investors seeking intra-day trading. However, inverse and leveraged ETFs are often misused, by retail investors and even financial advisors. The regulators and others have long-warned the securities industry about the dangers of inverse and leveraged ETFs. These are designed to be day-trading vehicles, but often financial advisors recommend holding these ETFs in an investor’s accounts for weeks or even months.

This video explains a little about leveraged etfs and how I trade them. Leveraged etfs can give you larger gains. Though they come with an added risk of decay. I suggest you do a little more research beyond this video to understand decay before your trade leveraged etfs. These instruments have a recommended one day hold and are not for long term investing. Though these instruments are not to be feared if you have the correct knowledge.

Hector McNeil from WisdomTree Europe looks at Leveraged (Exchange Traded Funds) ETFs, what they are and the benefits of trading them. ETFs, like investment funds, provide exposure to a portfolio of financial instruments, but they’re traded just like shares on a stock exchange. Some of the benefits of trading ETFs include: • Cost-efficiency • Gaining access to hard-to-reach markets • Increased transparency and flexibility Website: https://www.ig.com/uk/etfs-trading?CHID=9&SM=YT Twitter: https://twitter.com/IGcom Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/IGcom Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.iggroup.android.cfd&hl=en_GB LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/igcom Google +: https://plus.google.com/u/0/108999047065291192896 IG is a global leader in retail forex, providing fast and flexible access to over 10,000 financial markets – including indices, shares, forex, commodities .

https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do Leveraged ETFs are generally easy to trade, and they provide investors with the opportunity to multiply their gains on the long and short side of a wide variety of market sectors. However, these funds can also be extremely complex and volatile, resulting in four common investing mistakes. Ignoring how Rebalancing Affects ETFs Most leveraged funds are rebalanced on a daily basis, which may sound like a lot of bookkeeping, but the process can have a major impact on performance if prices are choppy or are moving against an ETF. For example, an ETF that is leveraged 3x and loses 2% on its index in one day would have an effective loss of 6%. Rebalancing compounds the loss because the fund’s holdings must be adjusted lower to reflect 3x leverage on the closing price of the shares for that day. In this example, if 100 ETF shares were purchased at $10, the leveraged exposure would be $3,000 (3x the cost of the shares). After a 6% loss, the shares of the ETF would be priced at $9.40. The shares would then be rebalanced to reflect 3x exposure for $9.40, which would reduce the total exposure of the shares to $2,820. Starting the next day, or several days, with lower exposure as a result of downward rebalancing (also referred to as negative compounding) requires a larger percentage to move higher to break even. The impact on performance due to downward rebalancing is the primary reason why leveraged ETFs tend to work better as short-term trading vehicles, rather than as buy-and-hold investments. Buying on Margin Buying leveraged ETFs in margin accounts adds leverage to fund shares that are already structured to provide volatility. For example, if an investor buys $10,000 of a 2x leveraged ETF at a 50% margin, $5,000 would be required to cover the position. Being on margin at 50% effectively doubles the existing leverage on the investor’s $5,000, meaning that price changes on the ETF’s index would be multiplied by 4x. In this example, a 2% loss on the index would result in an 8% loss (4 x 2%) of the shareholder’s equity. If the losses were to continue, the shareholder’s initial equity in the position would likely be erased after an approximate loss of 25% against the fund’s index. To make matters worse, any losses exceeding 25% could put the position at a negative value, which would have to be covered using other assets in the account or be paid out of pocket. Allowing Leverage To Overweight Sector Exposure Asset allocation within a portfolio is typically measured by the dollar value of each sector in the account. However, when sectors include leveraged ETFs, the exposure can be far greater than the value of the positions within the category. For example, say an investor decides to allocate $20,000 to each of five sectors within a $100,000 portfolio. With the money allocated to commodities, the investor buys a 3x leveraged gold ETF and a 3x leveraged oil ETF. Due to the leverage in the ETFs, this sector of the portfolio would be significa

https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do The appeal of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) is simple: They mix the diversification benefits of mutual funds with the ability to trade on an intraday basis. There are now thousands of ETFs to choose from and more are being added on a regular basis. Tutorial: ETF Investing The purpose of a leveraged ETF is to increase the exposure to and impact from the underlying index or investments in the ETF. For example, the leveraged ETF may attempt to double the return of an index on a daily basis. (To learn more about indexes, see The ABCs Of Stock Indexes and Index Investing.) Leveraged ETFs provide another tool for investors to access leverage in the financial markets. And because purchasing an ETF is as simple as issuing a buy order through your trading account, it is a much simpler process for most than using options, futures and trading on margin. In this article, we'll show you some key considerations to watch out for when purchasing leveraged ETFs. In June 2006, ProShares introduced the first wave of leveraged ETFs, referred to by the company as Ultra ProShares. The ultra ETFs were designed to double the daily performance of the underlying indexes they tracks. For example, the ProShares Ultra Dow 30 ETF (NYSEARCA:DDM) is structured to gain 2% when the Dow Jones Industrial Average gains 1%. More companies such as Direxion followed suit and according to data from Morningstar there are now more than 170 leveraged ETFs with over $30 billion in assets under management at the end of September, 2016. These funds use a number of instruments to hold positions across asset classes including equity, debt, commodities and derivatives. These investments can also be highly concentrated on sectors, for example ProShares UltraPro Nasdaq Biotechnology (UBIO,) or focused on certain geographies like Direxion Daily FTSE China Bull 3X ETF (NYSEARCA:YINN). Do They Deliver? The idea behind such funds is to take advantage of quick day-to-day movements in different financial markets. ProShares Ultra S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SSO) was launched in 2006 with the aim of doubling the returns of the underlying S&P 500. The prospectus of the fund clearly lays out that the intention is to double the daily return and not over the long term. In fact it goes on to say that for periods longer than a single day, the fund could lose money if the underlying index remains flat or even sometimes when it rises. For example, one a day in October 2016 when the S&P returned 0.48%, the fund gave back 0.82%. A similar trend exists for the performance over 1 week, but anything longer a disparity emerges. On a daily basis, the return of the ultra ETFs has been fairly accurate, but over the long term there are some issues. In theory, a leveraged ETF that returns twice that of the S&P 500 would have generated annual returns of over 13% over the last ten years. The performance of ProShares Ultra S&P 500 fund has been a far cry from its target. Let alone double, the fund's 10 y
