Leveraged ETFs aim to amplify and sometimes invert the daily return of an underlying index or asset, usually by a factor of 2 or 3 times the normal return. There are plenty of leveraged ETFs on the market, with varying objectives and degrees of leverage, but these securities have certain risks and cons that investors should be aware of.

Leveraged ETFs use debt and/or derivatives, such as options, to generate double or triple the daily performance of a certain index or asset class. Leveraged ETFs can be either long (bull) or short (bear) ETFs.

It is worth noting though that while leveraged ETFs certainly have their purpose for short-term investing, for example, utilizing a triple-leveraged ETF as a hedge to protect a short position, long-term investors should be cautious of leveraged ETFs.
