Portfolio Transfers to Stake

Inverse & Leveraged ETFs

At Stake, we believe you should decide what to invest in or trade.  This means having the ability to take opportunities no matter the market conditions. In the U.S. market, there is a large range of inverse ETFs that allow you to bet against the direction of a market (if you think it's going to fall) and generate returns from that. There are also a range of ETFs that have leverage built into them.

We make these available for you to trade, but before investing in them you should understand how they work.

Please read before investing in these instruments

These inverse (short) and leveraged ETFs funds are complicated instruments and are generally only suitable for experienced investors and traders who monitor their trading regularly and understand the nature of the product. 

On Stake, before trading these types of instruments, we suggest that you make yourself aware of the risks involved with them. We'll also seek your confirmation that you understand these risks before you place a trade in one.  

As these products are designed to meet their stated objectives on a daily basis, they may not be suitable for long term investments.
