"We've seen recent instability in European markets, with the post-Brexit effect yet to subside as political and economic uncertainties remain," said Sylvia Jablonski, Managing Director at Direxion. "The launch of the European Financials leveraged ETF is timely, as market reaction to the EU situation presents the chance for bullish traders to magnify their short-term perspective. Our new Gold Miners bear ETF will complement the existing suite of ETFs tracking that space, to give traders another option for taking advantage of short-term opportunities."
