New Products Enable Both Bull and Bear Investors to Seek to Capitalize on Equity Performance of Domestic and International Junior Gold-Mining Companies
NEW YORK, Oct. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Direxion, a leader in alternative investment solutions, has launched two leveraged exchange-traded funds (ETFs) tracking the global equity performance of junior gold-mining companies.
The Direxion Daily Junior Gold Miners Index Bull 3X Shares (JNUG) seeks to achieve daily investment results, before fees and expenses, of 300 percent of the performance of the Market Vectors™ Junior Gold Miners Index. The Direxion Daily Junior Gold Miners Index Bear 3X Shares (JDST) seeks daily investment results, before fees and expenses, of 300 percent of the inverse of the performance of the Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners Index.
The index is a market-capitalization-weighted total return index. It covers the largest and most liquid small-cap companies that derive at least 50 percent of their revenue from gold or silver mining, or have properties that do so. The composite includes companies based in the U.S. and other markets, including Australia, Canada and Singapore. As of Sept. 15, 2013, the index had average and median market capitalizations of $362.46 million and $294.74 million, respectively.
"At a time when a growing number of investors are expressing interest in exposure to companies engaged in the exploration and production of gold, we are offering liquid exposure to this sector with the benefit of added leverage," said Eric Falkeis, President of Direxion. "These two Funds are designed for traders that wish to take a bullish or bearish stance on the gold-mining industry."
The ETFs do not attempt to meet their investment goals for periods longer than one day. There is no guarantee that their objectives will be met.

The ETFs are not suitable for all investors and should be utilized only by sophisticated investors who understand leverage risk, consequences of seeking daily leveraged investment results and intend to actively monitor and manage their investments.

Investing in the funds may be more volatile than investing in broadly diversified funds. The use of leverage by a fund increases the risk to the fund. The more a fund invests in leveraged instruments the more the leverage will magnify gains or losses on those investments. There is no assurance that the Funds will achieve their objectives and an investment in a Fund could lose money. No single Fund is a complete investment program. The Funds are not designed to, and will not necessarily, track the underlying index or benchmark over a longer period of time. One cannot invest directly in an index.
An investment in the Funds involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. The Funds are non-diversified and include concentration risk that results from the Funds' investments in a particular industry, sector or geography which can increase volatility. The use of derivatives such as futures contracts, forward contracts, options and swaps are subject to market risks that may cause their price to fluctuate over time. The Fund does not attempt to, and should not be expected to, provide returns which are a multiple of the return of the Index for periods other than a single day. For other risks including correlation, leverage, compounding, market volatility and specific risks regarding South Korean and Brazilian securities, please read the prospectus.
