List of 2x and 3x Long ETFs (Bullish ETFs)

Long Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are a great way for investors to go long on different sectors or indices without having to actually buy physical shares of stock. With leveraged ETFs, Ultra (2x) and UltraPro (3x), the return is twice and triple the regular performance of the benchmark index the ETF tracks. Note this is twice the DAILY return; leveraged ETFs should not be traded long, only day traded, to avoid pricing differentiation.
