4 Bullish Ways to Get Tactical Exposure to the S&P 500 | ETF Trends

The S&P 500 is one of the few things that can change more than a high school relationship. Whether it’s by the hour, minute, or second, the S&P 500 is constantly changing, but Direxion Investments has ways to capitalize on these movements with tactical exchange traded funds (ETFs).

The S&P 500 itself had a volatile start to 2022. After inflation fears and geopolitical tensions in Ukraine put a bearish spin on the index, it’s started to roar back, giving bullish investors a reason to celebrate.

“The S&P 500 has come roaring back from a near-13% decline and finished the quarter off 4.9% after a rebound that has defied worries over tighter monetary policy and geopolitical instability stemming from the war in Ukraine,” Reuters reports. “Many stock investors have even shrugged off a brief inversion of a closely watched section of the U.S. Treasury yield curve – a phenomenon that has predicted past recessions.”
