ProFunds Group has launched eight exchange-traded funds that are three times long or three times short five of the most traded broad U.S. market indexes: the Nasdaq 100, Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P MidCap 400 and Russell 2000. Last year, ProShares Advisors, advisor to the funds, launched plus and minus 3x exposure to the S&P 500.

Sapir, chairman and CEO of ProShares. “These new ETFs provide knowledgeable investors with additional tools to act on short-term moves in popular U.S. indexes.”
