This ETF offers -2x daily leverage to silver prices, making ZSL a powerful tool for expressing a bearish outlook on the shiny precious metal. It should be noted that the daily reset feature combined with the explicit leverage in this ETF make ZSL inappropriate for investors without the ability or willingness to monitor this position on a regular (daily) basis. Moreover, investors should note that the underlying index won't always move in unison with spot silver prices, even over the course of a single trading session. For advanced investors with a fair amount of tolerance for risk and volatility, this ETF can be a very powerful tool for hedging silver exposure or simply for speculating on a decline in value. But ZSL shouldn't ever be found in a long-term, buy-and-hold portfolio; it's simply too risky, and the nuances of this fund make significant losses possible when held for an extended period of time in volatile markets. ZSL is a trading instrument, and should be treated as such.
