Trader Craze Over Pro Shares UltraPro QQQ

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

In the last eight days, ProShares UltraPro QQQ (TQQQ) ETF attracted more than $1.5 billion. TQQQ has become sought-after by day traders, despite its risks as a highly leveraged product. Currently, it is held by 24,000 Robinhood accounts, indicating popularity among novice investors. Even after NASDAQ faced a correction over concerns of imposing devaluations, day traders’ confidence in tech shares appears not to waiver.

TQQQ gives day traders an opportunity to gain short-term exposure. That could be great, or disastrous. Before September 3rd, TQQQ had returned more than 10,000%. Even after the NASDAQ drop of 5.2%, TQQQ’s lifetime return is 8,400%. Those returns are likely what drew in day traders. But throwing caution to the wind most often is an unwise strategy.

Meanwhile, investments such as, Invesco QQQ Trust Series 1 (QQQ) and ProShares UltraPro Short QQQ (SQQQ) are on the decline. Both have seen the worst outflows in a while. QQQ is down $4.8 billion in the last week and SQQQ has seen its worst week of outflows since March.
