Proshares Ultra Yen (YCL)

QUOTE AND NEWS
TheStreet.com  Oct 1  Comment 
FXY (Rydex Yen ETF) and YCL (ProShares Ultra 2 X Bull Yen ETF) Currency wars are raging as the dollar drops and various central banks intervene to support the dollar and weaken their currency for export purposes.




 

Proshares Ultra Yen (YCL) is an Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) that seeks to mimic twice the daily performance of the Yen spot price against the US Dollar. It uses the 4:00 PM (EST) Yen exchange rate, expressed in terms of USD/JPY, provided by Reuters as the basis for the underlying benchmark. In other words, if the USD/JPY declines by 1% for the day, the NAV of YCL will more or less decline by 2%, before fees and expenses. In the same manner, if it rises by 1% for the day, the NAV of YCL rises by 2% as well.

Inception Date: 11/24/08

Investment Strategy:

The principal investment strategies of this fund include:

  • investing in financial instruments (swaps, forwards, futures, and options) that the sponsors believe will produce twice the daily return of the USD/JPY.
  • assets not invested in financial instruments are invested in cash and / or US Treasury Securities or other high credit quality, short-term, fixed-income securities (e.g. money market funds, bank deposits, bank money market accounts, certain variable rate-demand notes, and repurchase agreements collateralized by government securities, whether denominated in USD or JPY) that will serve as collateral for the financial instruments.
