GASX Factset Analytics Insight
GASX provides 3x inverse daily exposure to the ISE-Revere Natural Gas Index. This is the short version of sister-fund GASL, which provides 3x long exposure to the index. The fund is now back on the market (relaunched Dec 2015) after Direxion closed it in Sep 2014 for the lack of investor interest. GASX achieves leverage through the use of swap agreements, which carry counterparty risk. The list of these counterparties is published on Direxion’s website. As is the case with all levered funds, GASX tends to underperform its target leverage in volatile markets if held for longer than its daily reset period. Because of that the fund is only suitable for short-term trading positions barring a robust rebalancing approach.
