HFU or XLF? A double-leveraged ETF (HFU) carries more risk that isn't present in a single-leveraged one. Be careful with these. Not for long-term investors. Generally. If long-term, stick with a plain vanilla ETF instead of the double-leverage one.

Canadian banks and insurance companies. Thinks this is near the end game for the financials and had their bottom in July. Expect they will lead the market out of this. This is a “double up” instrument.

Horizon BetaPro Financial Bull EFT- Has come out with a number of products, some are 2-times levered to the upside of the market, some are 2-times levered to the downside of the market. It’s a great way to play the financial market. Know that it is levered.

MER is 1.15% plus there’s a forward transaction underlying it for a total of about 1.5%. You will get the dividends, but there will also be a cost on the leverage. They don't actually buy the stocks, but buy the futures market for exposure. Great product for trading but is not a product he would invest in for a long term. From a long-term perspective you are going to have difficulties seeing returns give you 2X but you are always going to have 2X market risk. You are probably better off margining a bank ETF or at a bank type of index to get the same kind of leverage.

Basically, you are buying financial service stocks, which will give you twice the exposure to the upside of those particular stocks. If he is right about the market retesting its lows, he would want to be exposed to the financials. The financials will lead us out of this.
