The ETFs are not suitable for all investors and should be utilized only by investors who understand the risks associated with seeking daily leveraged investment results, and intend to actively monitor and manage their investments.

An investor should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of Direxion ETFs carefully before investing.

*The Net Expense Ratio of the Fund includes management fee and other operating expenses, but does not include indirect expenses such as Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses, leveraged interest and brokerage commissions. The Fund's Advisor, Rafferty Asset Management, LLC has entered into an Operating Expense Limitation Agreement with the Fund, under which Rafferty has contractually agreed to cap all or a portion of its management fee and/or reimburse the Fund for Other Expenses through September 1, 2016 to the extent that the Fund's Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses exceed 0.95%.
Risks: An investment in the ETFs involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. The ETFs are non-diversified and include risks associated with concentration risk that results from the Funds' investments in a particular industry or sector which can increase volatility. The use of derivatives such as futures contracts, forward contracts, options and swaps are subject to market risks that may cause their price to fluctuate over time. The Funds do not attempt to, and should not be expected to; provide returns which are a multiple of the return of their Indexes for periods other than a single day. Utilizing foreign currency forward contracts to hedge foreign currency positions does not eliminate the impact of the movements in the value of non-U.S. currencies and securities but rather establishes a fixed rate of exchange for a future point in time. Exchange rates can be volatile and may change quickly and unpredictably in response to both global and economic conditions in a geographic region. For other risks including leverage, correlation, compounding, market volatility, shorting for the Bear Funds, and specific risks regarding each sector, please read the prospectus.
