How Leveraged Mid Cap ETFs Work?
Most of the Leveraged Mid Cap ETFs track a particular mid cap stock market index, and it takes positions in its stocks or their corresponsing futures positions to generate the leveraged returns. For example, the broad-based S&P Mid Cap 400 index or the sector specific NYSE Arca Gold Miners index are two popular index of the U.S. Using advanced derivatives, the returns of the stated leveraged factor is achieved. The leveraged mid cap ETFs take futures positions on these indices, and achieve the magnified returns of the stated leverage factor. Typically, the factor is 2x, 3x or 4x, which amplifies the returns by the same value. However, its a high-risk, high-reward game, as returns are magnified by the same multiple for both profit and loss.
