SILX™ seeks daily investment results, before fees and expenses, of 200% of the performance of the Prime Junior Silver Miners and Explorers Index, designed to give direct exposure to the silver mining exploration and production industry.
- This leveraged ETF seeks a return that is 200% the return of its benchmark index for a single day. The Fund should not be expected to provide 2x the return of the benchmark’s cumulative return for periods greater than a day. There is no guarantee the Fund will meet its stated investment objective.
- Silver is the most electrically conductive metal in the world and has significant industrial application (solar panels, medical devices, smartphones), and acts as a store of value (coins, bars, jewelry).
- This asset class is uncorrelated to most broad equity markets and can be a great method of diversification.
Why Invest in a Leveraged ETF?
- Short-term trading seeking to magnify/capitalize on daily market movements.
- Can be used either as a hedging vehicle or in some arbitrage strategies.
- More efficient way of capital deployment to gain exposure.
About the Fund
The ETFMG Prime 2x Daily Junior Silver Miners ETF (SILX™) seeks daily investment results, before fees and expenses, that correspond to two times (2x) or 200% the return of the Prime Junior Silver Miners & Explorers Index (the “Index”) for a single day, not for any other period. The Index provides a benchmark for investors interested in tracking public, small-cap companies that are active in the silver mining exploration and production industry.
About the Index
The Prime Junior Silver Miners & Explorers Index is designed to provide a benchmark for investors interested in tracking public, small-cap companies that are active in the silver mining exploration and production industry. The stocks are screened for liquidity and weighted according to modified free-float market capitalization. An investment cannot be made directly in an index.
Investing in an ETFMG 2x Daily Leveraged ETF may be more volatile than investing in broadly diversified funds. The use of leverage by an ETF increases the risk to the ETF. The ETFMG 2x Daily Leveraged ETFs are not suitable for all investors and should be utilized only by sophisticated investors who understand leverage risk, consequences of seeking daily leveraged, or daily inverse leveraged, investment results and intend to actively monitor and manage their investment as frequently as daily. The Fund’s returns for periods longer than a single day will very likely differ in amount, and possibly even direction, from the Fund’s 2x the return of the Index for the same period. For periods longer than a single day, the Fund will lose money if the Index’s performance is flat, and it is possible that the Fund will lose money even if the level of the Index rises.
