YANG Fund Description
The Direxion FTSE Daily China Bear ETF provides daily 3x leveraged exposure to a cap-weighted index of the 50 largest Chinese stocks traded in Hong Kong.
YANG Factset Analytics Insight
YANG is an aggressive daily bet against Chinese large-cap equities, delivering -3x leveraged exposure to about 50 large and liquid names traded in Hong Kong. YANG rebalances its leveraged exposure daily, so over the long haul, compounding effects can lead to profound differences in expected returns relative to the index. The fund's underlying equity exposure doesn't aim for comprehensive "all China" exposure since it excludes A-shares traded on the mainland and names listed solely in the US. Therefore expect big sector bets relative to our broad benchmark. In particular, financial firms are heavily represented in this index, making YANG in part a bet against that sector. The underlying index is tracked in unleveraged form by FXI. YANG's expense ratio may be high by unlevered ETF standards, but is average when compared with other 3x leveraged funds. YANG has decent assets and has become fairly liquid, with a lot of daily trading volume and tiny spreads, which is good news given its short-term tactical mission.
