Direxion Refiles With SEC for Short Bitcoin Futures ETF

The exchange-traded fund (ETF) issuer had previously withdrawn its application late last year.

Direxion has reapplied with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for its Bitcoin Strategy Bear ETF, a futures-based exchange-traded fund seeking to inversely track the price of bitcoin (BTC).

  • Direxion’s move on Thursday follows a filing on Wednesday by ProShares for a similar product.
  • The Direxion Bitcoin Strategy Bear ETF is intended to maintain short exposure to bitcoin futures contracts – in essence, betting the price of the cryptocurrency will fall.
  • In early November, Direxion – at the behest of the SEC – pulled a previous application for the Bitcoin Strategy Bear ETF. No reason was given at the time.
