Why Leveraged ETFs are Dangerous

Leveraged ETFs can be Harmful to Your Financial Health

While leveraged and inverse Exchange Traded Funds [ETFs] have similarities to other non-leveraged ETFs, they are different in several vitally important ways. The most important distinction is the leveraged component, which means that these funds use debt and financial derivatives to amplify the fund’s returns.

Amped-Up Funds

But, beyond the “Amped-Up” nature of these funds, leveraged ETFs generally reset on a daily basis, so they should not be held more than one day! Even if the underlying asset increases in value, a leveraged ETF may lose money depending on which futures or swaps were used. Leveraged ETFs are much more expensive to trade than non-leveraged ETFs so transaction costs may eat into your gains.

If you believe a broker or financial advisor recommended an unsuitable investment in leveraged ETFs for you, call securities fraud Attorney Howard M. Rosenfield, for a confidential free claim analysis. Call him at 800-637-3243 or send an email to howardrosenfield@stockbrokerproblems.com.

There are time limits that could apply to your claim, so call before you lose your rights!

Client Reviews
Howard Rosenfield is truly a life saver. After months of working with my financial advisor, I found out he was making risky investments without my knowledge. When I discovered how much money I lost, I thought there was nothing I could do. Howard explained all the difficult terms and what exactly my financial advisor did wrong. If it wasn't for Howard, I would never have recovered my losses and would be under extreme financial distress to this day. J.
Howard’s experience and advice throughout this ordeal was invaluable and reassuring. The law in general is complicated, difficult to understand and very personal. Financial misappropriation is even more personal but Howard’s years of experience and calm demeanor helped keep me calm, focused and moving forward. For anyone in need of a knowledgeable and experienced Investment Recovery Attorney I strongly recommend Howard. Laura
