1. KOLD – ProShares UltraShort Bloomberg Natural Gas
KOLD, which offers 2x daily inverse leveraged exposure to natural gas, topped the list of top performing levered/ inverse ETFs returning ~21% last week, as natural gas prices fell on record US output and forecasts for milder U.S. weather.
2. CONL – GraniteShares 1.5x Long Coinbase Daily ETF
CONL, which provides 1.5x leveraged exposure to the daily price movement for shares of Coinbase stock, ranked second on the list of top performing levered ETFs with ~20% weekly gains. Shares of Coinbase stock gained on the prospects of a probable rate hike pause and the passage of the debt ceiling deal.
3. TSLL – Direxion Daily TSLA Bull 1.5X Shares ETF
TSLL, which provides 1.5x leveraged exposure to the daily price movement for shares of Tesla stock, featured on the list of top-performing levered ETFs with ~16% returns in the last week.

TARK is an actively-managed fund-of-fund that seeks to achieve 2x the return, for a single day, of the ARK Innovation ETF (ARKK) and was one of the best-performing levered ETFs with over 12% weekly gains as growth and beta stocks moved higher on strong U.S. economic data and expectations of a rate hike pause.
8. DPST – Direxion Daily Regional Banks Bull 3X Shares
DPST, which provides 3x leveraged exposure to an index of US regional banking stocks, was one of the candidates on the list of top-performing levered ETFs as the Financials sector gained by over 1.5% on rising Treasury yields last week. Additionally, commercial banking and consumer finance both increased by over 1.2% and 6%, respectively, in the last five days.
9. SKYU – ProShares Ultra Nasdaq Cloud Computing ETF
