EDCDirexion Daily MSCI Emerging Markets Bull 3x Shares
EDC Fund Description
EDC provides 3x leveraged exposure to a market-cap-weighted index of companies operating in emerging markets.
EDC Factset Analytics Insight
EDC is an aggressive one-day bet on the widely followed MSCI Emerging Markets Index. The fund promises to provide 300% of the return of the index—a cap-weighted composite of emerging markets firms covering 85% of the market cap in those countries—every day, which means heavy exposure to financials and technology, as well as to firms in China, Korea, and Taiwan. As with most leveraged funds, it's designed to provide this exposure only for one trading day. Holding the fund for longer than one day will expose investors to the effects of compounding and may create significant drift between the expected return and what is actually realized. Although its fee isn't cheap, tactical users will be more concerned with the trading costs. To that end, trading volume is extremely robust and average inside spreads are very tight, especially considering the 3x exposure.
