Trading Leveraged 2X and 3X Gold and Gold Miner Funds

You should be especially careful when trading leveraged gold ETFs like the 2X or 3X funds because they include unique risks, characteristics and fees.

The leveraged funds are only really appropriate for short-term or day-trading gold. Double and Triple ETF long-term performance is often very different than the long-term performance of the underlying gold assets that these funds may track due to fees and other complex factors.
