Analyst Report

This ETF is designed for investors looking to bet on a weak performance of the Japanese yen relative to the U.S. dollar or to hedge against existing yen exposure in their portfolios. YCS utilizes daily leverage, meaning that its objective involves achieving amplified returns over a single trading session, and that performance over multiple sessions may not correspond to the target multiple. Given the targeted focus and use of leverage, YCS is probably not appropriate for most investors; it should never be used in a long-term portfolio, and makes sense only for those with the willingness and ability to monitor and rebalance their portfolio regularly. For those looking to make a bet against the Japanese currency, this fund can be useful; for most investors, it shouldn't be used at all. YCL offers a way to place a leveraged bet on the yen, betting that the Japanese currency will appreciate relative to the dollar over the short term.
