Direxion Investments' leveraged and inverse products, in particular, have given investors access to an investment space that was typically relegated to only high-net worth individuals or institutions. With the transparency and liquidity of an ETF wrapper that incorporates multiple hedge fund strategies, Direxion opens up the arena to all types of investors irrespective of net worth. Jablonski cites education as a prime catalyst for investors no longer buying and holding the short-term trading products and rather, using them for what they're intended to do.
