FNGU FANG INDEX 3X LEVERAGED ETN
At the outset, my apologies to readers who are on their phones. I forgot to prepare the images at the recommended size, Next time I will be more attentive!
Let’s get some quick definitions out of the way. For example:
What is 3X Leveraged ETN
The +3X ETNs are leveraged notes, which means they are exposed to three times the risk of any decrease in the level of the Index, compounded daily. According to the Bank of Montreal, The return on the MicroSectors FANG & Innovation 3X Leveraged ETNs (3X ETNs) is linked to a three times leveraged participation in the performance of the Index, compounded daily, minus the applicable fees. The ETNs provide levered exposure to the Solactive FANG Innovation Index. The Index is a total return index that tracks the stock prices of 15 large capitalization U.S. technology stocks, including eight specific core components. The ETN seeks a return on the underlying index for a single day. The ETNs are not “buy and hold” investments and should not be expected to provide a leveraged return of the underlying index’s cumulative return for periods greater than a day. Savvy?
OK, let’s try a briefer description. According to MarketWatch (remember, I also contribute to MarketWatch!), The Fund seeks a three times leveraged participation in the daily performance of the NYSE FANG+ Index. The Index is an equal-dollar weighted index designed to represent a segment of the technology and consumer discretionary sectors consisting of highly-traded growth stocks of technology and tech-enabled companies.
