Direxion launches two triple-leveraged single-country ETFs today - Daily Brazil Bull 3X Shares (BRZU) and Daily South Korea Bull 3X Shares (KORU). Both the funds have an expense ratio of 0.95%, much higher than counterparts FKO and FBZ (0.80%) and EWY and EWZ (0.60%), but matching UBR (0.95%). The timing of the launch is interesting as both countries have struggled to perform recently, with iShares' Brazil fund EWZ -13.4% (last 12 months) and -2.4% (YTD). EWY (South Korea) is -6.2% (last 12 months) and -12.3% (YTD).
