Definition of Leveraged ETF
A leveraged exchange-traded fund (ETF) is a product that uses financial derivatives and debt to amplify the returns of an underlying token. For example, if the underlying token rises 1%, the corresponding 3x leveraged ETF rises 3% respectively, while the -3x products falls 3% respectively.
A leveraged ETF is essentially a fund managed by a professional financial team. Each ETF product corresponds to a certain number of futures contract positions. The fund manager can dynamically adjust the futures positions so that the entire fund share can maintain a fixed leverage for a certain period of time. A professional team is responsible for the management and maintenance of the investment portfolio, allowing investors to easily build their own constant leveraged investment portfolio without needing to understand the specific mechanism.
How leveraged etfs work
When the underlying token (BTC) along the swings in the opposite direction than a threshold value, the fund management will introduce the mechanism of rebalancing, recalibrate fund positions to ensure that net fund losses do not exceed a certain limit. In this way, the price will not completely return to zero, so there is no risk of burst.
