 Direxion, a leading provider of tradeable and thematic ETFs, today announced the launch of the Direxion Daily Concentrated Qs Bull 2X Shares (Ticker: QQQU) and the Direxion Daily Concentrated Qs Bear 1X Shares (Ticker: QQQD). QQQU and QQQD seek to achieve 200%, or 100% of the inverse (opposite), respectively, of the daily performance of the Indxx Front of the Q Index.

The Index is designed to track the performance of the seven largest Nasdaq 100-listed companies, all of which are household names, including Alphabet Inc. (GOOGL), Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN), Apple Inc. (AAPL), Meta Platforms, Inc. (META), Microsoft Corporation (MSFT), Nvidia Corporation (NVDA) and Tesla, Inc. (TSLA).

“QQQU and QQQD capitalize on key market drivers, to include artificial intelligence, cloud computing and semiconductors," said Direxion Managing Director and Head of Sales and Alternatives, Edward Egilinsky. “These Funds offer traders a unique opportunity to express their short-term conviction on the top seven market cap-weighted companies in the Nasdaq 100.”

All Direxion leveraged and inverse ETFs are intended only for investors with an in-depth understanding of the risks associated with seeking leveraged investment results, and who plan to actively monitor and manage their positions. There is no guarantee these ETFs will meet their objective. Please visit the Direxion Leveraged and Inverse ETF Education Center, where you will find educational brochures, videos, and a self-paced online course to help you understand if leveraged ETFs are right for you.
