Disclosure: The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate. An investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Returns for performance under one year are cumulative, not annualized. For the most recent month-end performance please visit the funds’ website at www.direxioninvestments.com.<br />

<br />

Short-term performance, in particular, is not a good indication of a fund’s future performance, and an investment should not be made based solely on returns. Because of ongoing market volatility, fund performance may be subject to substantial short-term changes. For additional information, see a fund’s prospectus.<br />

<br />

Risks: <br />

<br />

An investor should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of the ETFs carefully before investing. The prospectus and summary prospectus contain this and other information about the ETFs. To obtain a prospectus or summary prospectus please visit www.direxioninvestments.com/regulatory-documents. The prospectus and summary prospectus should be read carefully before investing. <br />

<br />

There is no guarantee that the ETFs will achieve their investment objectives. The Direxion’s Leveraged and Inverse ETFs are not suitable for all investors and should be utilized only by sophisticated investors who understand leverage risk, consequences of seeking daily leveraged investment results and intend to actively monitor and manage their investments. Investing in the ETFs may be more volatile than investing in broadly diversified funds. The use of leverage by an ETF means the ETFs are riskier than alternatives which do not use leverage. <br />

<br />

Direxion Shares Risks – An investment in each Fund involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Each Fund is non-diversified and includes risks associated with the Funds’ concentrating their investments in a particular industry, sector, or geographic region which can result in increased volatility.

Each Fund does not attempt to, and should not be expected to, provide returns which are three times the performance of their underlying index for periods other than a single day. Risks of each Fund include Effects of Compounding and Market Volatility Risk, Leverage Risk, Counterparty Risk, Intra-Day Investment Risk, risks specific to investment in securities of a Fund’s underlying index, for the Bull Funds, Daily Index Correlation Risk and Other Investment Companies (including ETFs) Risk, and for the Bear Funds, Daily Inverse Index Correlation Risk and risks related to Shorting and Cash Transactions.
