7. ONG – Direxion Daily Oil Services Bull 2X Shares
ONG seeks daily investment results of 200% of the performance of the MVIS US Listed Oil Services 25 Index and was one of the top-performing levered ETFs with ~10.8% weekly gains driven by China easing COVID restrictions and US stockpiling reserves.
