    Ultra 2x are shams- read.

    The article points out a very important point about 2X funds. Create a chart that plots both DIG (ultra-long oil and gas) and DUG (ultra-short oil and gas) during the past 6 months. Shorting DIG was a money maker, but being long DUG, you eventually wound up without significant earnings, even though oil and gas took a historical plunge during the 6 months. Same result if you plot SKF (Ultra-short financials) against UYG (ultra-long financials) for the past 6 months.

    Tricky items to play.
