This fund offers -3x exposure to the Russian equities by tracking the leveraged version of the DAXglobal Russia Index. This makes it an extremely volatile option for playing a component of the BRIC bloc that holds impressive potential but also significant risks. Russia's economy remains largely dependent on the energy sector, thanks to the country's vast reserves of natural gas and oil, and as such RUSS could surge if oil prices fall and tumble if the price of crude rises. RUSS should definitely not be used by long-term buy-and-holders but for those looking to make a concentrated bet on Russia over a single day, this fund is perfect. Just be aware that the product will almost certainly face significant volatility over the short and long term and that it must be monitored very closely.
