The decay in the 3x is nice. Especially in a short 3x with rising market .
So why is this retarded?
It's not a bad strategy, just risky.

Taking in position in a leveraged ETF against a regular asset (e.g. SPY vs SH) is a good way to bet on autocorrelation of returns. The real question is weather the borrow rate is above the carry you make on the realized autocorrelation.

which retail broker can you go long/short 2x 3x ETFs simultaneously? I mean, there is no margin credit and with the low leverage in stocks, tying up so much capital for so little volatility just wont work.
which broker can you lervage up long/short x3 etfs?
