    do this to see power of 3x etf:if you take a penny

    You don't get it. This ETF closes out everyday and the makers of the ETF take a chunk of the proceeds, which causes the price to decay.

    Look at the combined price of FAS and FAZ the past thirty days alone, it was $16.50 30 days ago, it is barely $14.25 today, it will be no more than $12.75 by 1 July.

    You need to understand that according to the prospectus, this is a daytrade. It isn't an ETF at all, it's a gambling fund where the makers of the fund are croupiers taking value from it EVERY DAY--that is the biggest complaint about it. They call it "decay".

    It's actually a scam.

    Think of it as an option on the market deteriorating over time every day.

    The writer who started this thread is an idiot.
