The funds will close to new investors on March 23.

“Due to the Funds’ inability to attract sufficient investment assets, Rafferty believes they cannot continue to conduct their business and operations in an economically efficient manner. As a result, the Board concluded that liquidating and shuttering the Funds would be in the best interest of the Funds and their shareholders,” according to a statement issued by Direxion.
