Emerging Market Leveraged ETFs List

Our lists of emerging market leveraged ETFs include:

Note that most emerging market leveraged ETFs come from fund managers Direxion or ProShares and involve the use of derivative instruments to replicate whatever performance is being sought e.g. two times the inverse (-2x) of the daily performance of a given index.

Investors will also need to carefully read any and all documentation to ensure they have a clear understanding of what each leveraged ETF fund manager means by terms such as “bull,” “bear,” “enhanced,” “inverse,” “leveraged,” “short” and “ultrashort.”

Note: For our ETF lists, we have classified Proshares Ultra ETFs simply as leveraged in the table below and have placed them on a separate bullish / bearish ETF page as they seek to replicate two times (2x) the daily performance of their underlying index while our bullish emerging market ETFs list contains ETFs that, in general, seek a return that is 300% of the return of an underlying benchmark index.
