2X ETFs

One of the popular Exchange-Traded Funds is a 2x leveraged ETF. A 2x leveraged ETF creates two times the return of the correlating asset. The most important thing to keep in mind is that a 2x leveraged ETF is designed to provide a multiple return on a daily basis. The goal of a 2x leveraged ETF is to give 200% return. However, that does not always happen and investors should remember about the high level of risk connected with such investments. 2x Leveraged ETFs may focus on a variety of sectors (energy, financials or basic materials), different regions (individual countries, regions, group of countries e.g. emerging markets) and various market caps.
