Overview of Direxion Daily S&P Biotech Bear 3X Shares offerings
Targets Inverse Daily Return of S&P Biotechnology Select Industry Index (3x Leveraged): LABD aims to deliver returns that are -3 times (3x leveraged) the inverse performance of the S&P Biotechnology Select Industry Index. This means if the index goes down 1%, LABD seeks to go up 3%, and vice versa.
Seeks to Capitalize on Bearish Markets: LABD benefits when the S&P Biotechnology Select Industry Index, and the companies within it, are declining in price. The 3x leverage amplifies those downward movements.
Short-Term Investment Focus: Due to the compounding effect of leverage, LABD is designed for short-term trading and may not be suitable for long-term investors.
High Risk Profile: Due to the leveraged nature, LABD is considered a high-risk investment compared to traditional ETFs or stocks. Investors should be aware of the potential for significant capital loss, even if the biotechnology sector experiences a moderate decline.
Potential for Magnified Gains: While LABD targets magnified returns in a declining biotech market, it can also amplify gains if the market rebounds slightly.
Volatility Decay Over Time: The daily reset mechanism of the leverage can cause LABD's performance to deviate from its target return over extended periods, especially in volatile markets.
