The Proshares Ultra Oil and Gas (DIG)


Proshares Ultra Oil and Gas (DIG) is an Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) that seeks to mimic the daily investment results, before fees and expenses, corresponding to twice the daily performance of the Dow Jones US Oil and Gas Index. In other words, if this underlying index declines by 1% for the day, the NAV of DIG will more or less decline by 2%, before fees and expenses. In the same manner, if this underlying index rises by 1% for the day, the NAV of DIG rises by 2% as well.
