If so you need to read the list below which consists of the 10 best ETFs based on overall return from the last month. Note: ETFs must trade atleast 50,000 shares per day to be included.

Direxion: Gold Bull 2x (NUGT) stock chart:

Pretty noticeable to see that the majority of ETFs are ultra and triple leveraged. As ETFs expand out with new offerings, a trend of seeing individual countries, more commodities, and a variety of precious metals ETFs on the above list is starting to emerge.
