    Leveraged ETFs Continue to Surge After Jair Bolsonaro Election

    The election of Jair Bolsonaro signaled a turn from standard politics into the unknowns of anti-establishment, but to exchange-traded fund (ETF) investors, it doesn't matter how polarizing Brazil's new president is as long as the returns keep flowing from the  Direxion Daily MSCI Brazil Bull 3X ETF (BRZU) and  Direxion Daily Latin America Bull 3X ETF (NYSEArca: LBJ) . With sectors like technology getting roiled by October’s downpour of volatility, tech-centric ETFs like the   Vanguard Information Technology ETF (VGT) and  Technology Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLK) were obviously hit hard. Thus far, ETFs like BRZU and LBJ have responded positively during the waning days of October.

    Brazilian ETF Keeps Surging as Presidential Elections Looms

    Brazilian voters will head to the polls in less than a week to not only choose its new president, but also select the candidate who will hopefully help extract the country of its economic doldrums. In the meantime, the Direxion Daily MSCI Brazil Bull 3X ETF (BRZU)  continued its upward trajectory today amid a volatile U.S. stock market, rising 6% as the Dow Jones Industrial Average languished with over a 100-point loss as of 2:45 p.m. ET. The  important presidential runoff election is slated to take place on October 28 after the first round of the election saw far-right presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro take the early lead with a better-than-expected 46.7% of the votes, while Fernando Haddad came in second with 28.5%.

    Leveraged ETF Continues to Benefit as Emerging Markets Sell-Off Deepens

    Last week's sell-off in U.S. equities is spilling over into the emerging markets space, leaving investors to wonder when the strategy for value-hunting in EM turns into outright avoidance. One ETF that has been benefitting from EM's unceremonious fall from its rise in 2017 is the Direxion Daily MSCI Emerging Markets Bear 3X ETF (EDZ) . EDZ seeks daily investment results that equal 300% of the inverse of the daily performance of the MSCI Emerging Markets IndexSM. The index is a free float-adjusted market capitalization weighted index that is designed to represent the performance of large- and mid-capitalizations securities across the 24 emerging market countries.

    Leveraged Brazilian ETF Continues to Rise After Dow Sells Off

    The surging  Direxion Daily MSCI Brazil Bull 3X ETF (BRZU)  continued its rise after steep sell-offs in the Dow Jones Industrial Average the last two trading sessions, which left the capital markets in a daze, causing the Dow to lose over 1,300 points. BRZU wasn't immune to the negative market contagion, but today, the leveraged ETF resumed its upward trajectory, gaining almost 6% as the country readies itself for an important presidential runoff election on October 28. The first round of the election saw far-right presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro take the early lead with a better-than-expected 46.7% of the votes last weekend with Fernando Haddad coming in second with 28.5%. Like U.S. President Donald Trump in 2016, Bolsonaro was billed as the wild card candidate who was a departure from political norms.

    Emerging Markets Deeply Discounted, but Investors Must Use Due Diligence

    Emerging markets have been turned inside out this year after a spectacular run in 2017, but before an investor looks to dive into the deeply-discounted EM space after Wednesday’s 800-point drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, he or she must be still selective and exercise due diligence. Simply selecting a country-specific ETF in emerging markets without the proper research could be akin to catching a falling knife and as such, investors must use caution. While it may be enticing to see the red and buy into the dip, instabilities in certain countries’ financial systems could still leave these markets depressed, and as such, investors should shy away from these parts of the world.
