Why all the Hatin on Leveraged ETF’s?

Now I will admit I got my ass handed to me years ago with FAS/FAZ (another story).
However, if You bought a 3X levered ETF Bull after Trump won, look at the gains:
Dow 3x https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/UDOW?p=UDOW
Nasdaq: https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/Tqqq/?p=Tqqq
S&P: https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/SPXL/?p=SPXL

So if a person expects the markets to gain, why not lever up?

And when the market declines? What will people say about leveraged ETFs then? It’s my opinion that most investors cannot properly manage the behavioral risk that accompanies leveraged products.

To all my haters, looks like my portfolio is feeling the market love X3 AGAIN if the futures pan out.

Not sure why folks hate on my leveraged ETF friends so much. Heck if you root for a market rise, why not enjoy a 1.5-3x levered rise as well…

Happy Saving!!! 🙂

Are you holding your leveraged positions overnight? Leveraged ETFs tend to suffer decay, especially if held overnight. Surely you recognize that if you are doing well with leveraged ETFs, you are the beneficiary of luck. Hopefully you will also be able to get out in time.

Yes Luke, I do hold overnight at times as I risk my savings on levered indexes DOW, S&P, NASDAQ ect the trend has been my friend..
However, This weekend is a BIG gamble with the GOVT shutdown Russian Roulette so I have bailed.
I won’t risk my savings on a political game of chicken.
Thanks for the tip.
