We have highlighted six leveraged ETFs that have piled up exceptional returns in the first month of 2019 given that Wall Street made a sharp turnaround, posting the best month in many decades.
Although markets were strong throughout much of 2018, horrendous performance in December ended up dragging U.S. stocks into the red overall for the year. Indeed, the S&P 500 ultimately lost 4.4% for the year, marking its most significant single-year loss since the financial crisis of 2008.
We have highlighted nine ETFs that have piled up exceptional returns to start 2019 and will continue to be investors' darlings provided the sentiments remain the same.

The United States’ economy has been firing on all cylinders for a while now, which has led to very strong gains for its major stock indices. While the major indices have been hovering around all-time highs, leading indicators—including semiconductors, financials, and homebuilders—have been showing some weakness, to say the least. The Daily Semiconductor Bull 3X Shares (SOXL), Daily Financial Bull 3X Shares (FAS), and Daily Homebuilders & Supplies Bull 3X Shares (NAIL) have quickly turned from market darlings to market duds, and the pain may only be getting started.
In a bull market that has lasted as long as the current one, spotting laggards becomes increasingly easy. Homebuilding stocks and exchange-traded funds are among those laggards.
A rising rate landscape continues to rock the foundations of the real estate sector, particularly when it comes to homebuilders, which could benefit the Direxion Daily MSCI Real Est Bear 3X ETF (DRV) , but put persistent downward pressure on the Direxion Daily Homebuilders and Supplies Bull 3X Shares (NAIL) . With 30-year mortgage rates already surpassing the 5% mark, the cost to finance a home is getting more expensive, clamping down a housing market that has been lagging even as U.S. equities were in the midst of a historic bull run. Compounding the issue is the benchmark U.S. Treasury yield on the 10-year note reaching a new seven-year high.

Based on the Modern Homebuyer Survey, almost half of the participants cited that the competition for home buying is decreasing, which could bode well for traders looking to leverage homebuilder ETFs like the Direxion Daily Homebuilders and Supplies Bull and Bear 3X Shares (NAIL) . The survey results showed that more than 50% of participants felt competition is thinning in areas like Colorado, California and New York. This could signal an impending shift from a seller's market to a buyer's market, which could force the hand of homebuilders to meet increased demand.
The decision on Wednesday by the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates 25 basis points, effectively raising the federal funds rate from 1.75% to 2%, did not bode well for homebuilder ETFs after the news. ...
