Two further Boost ETP products quoted in GBP
Friday 22nd March '13
BOOST ETP the award winning, independent exchange-traded product (ETP) provider is announcing today two further BOOST 3x leveraged and 3x short products will be quoted in GBP, as well as their base currency.
The continued expansion of the platform means ETPs linked to non GBP indices will be more accessible to UK investors, with tighter relative spreads. BOOST will make two of the most popular equity ETPs available for trading on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) in GBP. With the new additions, BOOST’s lineup will increase to 28 ETPs, providing 3x leveraged and 3x short exposure to some of the most liquid and widely followed commodity and equity global indices.
The new ETPs to be quoted in GBP are:
The BOOST ETPs listed above track the daily performance and inverse performance of the DAX multiplied by three (excluding cost and fees). The DAX index is comprised of 30 selected German blue chip stocks traded on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
Boost ETPs are designed to return 3x the daily movement, long or short, of the relevant benchmark index. The table below shows the returns of the DAX ETPs and underlying index, in EUR.
Nik Bienkowski, Co-CEO of BOOST ETP, comments: “We are pleased to be expanding our range of ETPs, starting with two more highly traded ETPs linked to the DAX which are now being made available in GBP as well as EUR. This will make BOOST ETPs more accessible to UK investors, with tighter relative spreads.
In the current environment, whether markets are rising or falling, the DAX is a perfect play on global macro sentiment,. The DAX is a risk-on risk-off sentiment barometer for anything that happens. Automobiles and industrial are a play on China and the US while the DAX’s insurers and re-insurers are a play on event risk. The DAX 30 is the ultimate beta play.
With the availability of 3x leverage and 3x short ETPs, investors can take advantage of both rising and falling markets.“
