While leveraged and inverse ETFs can help traders exploit extremely short-term market movements, they definitely are unsuitable for the vast majority of investors.  Typically, their holding periods should be very short.

Aggressive financial advisors may have unsuitably recommended VelocityShares 3x Long Crude Oil ETN in an effort to juice returns.
