Letter to Shareholders

Dear Shareholders,

This Semi-Annual Report for the Direxion Shares exchange traded funds (the "ETFs") covers the period from November 1, 2021 to April 30, 2022 (the "Semi-Annual Period").

Market Review:

Although global equities ended 2021 on a high note, the Omicron variant of Covid-19 was beginning to spread, and the CPI index started to creep upward. The equity rally did not last into 2022, as the S&P 500 recorded its worst January since 2008, with value names outperforming growth names. Equity markets continued to decline through February 2022, further magnified by the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The S&P 500 posted its first monthly gain of the year in March 2022, but not all global markets followed suit. At the same time, Chinese markets were crashing, primarily due to renewed countrywide Covid-19 shut-downs. April 2022 was extremely volatile, with equity markets struggling both domestically and internationally.

In November 2021, the treasury yield curve flattened and appetite for bonds was weak. There was a slight shift in December 2021, as investors looked towards the debt markets as a safe haven against mounting inflationary pressures, but risk-off sentiment returned in 2022 as the Federal Reserve took a hawkish stance against the economic environment. The Russian invasion of Ukraine weakened the fixed income segment of the market further, especially in emerging market debt. The end of this period saw the treasury yield curve shift higher, hurting fixed income returns. The general economic sentiment was weak as CPI and inflation rose, geopolitical tensions continued, and the Federal Reserve raised rates.

Direxion Shares Operational Review:

The discussion below relates to the performance of the ETFs for the Semi-Annual Period. The ETFs are leveraged and seek daily investment results, before fees and expenses, of 300% or -300% of the performance of a particular benchmark. All ETF returns are NAV (net asset value) returns.

The ETFs, as stated above, seek daily investment results. They do not seek to track a multiple of their respective benchmarks for periods of longer than one day and the performance of the ETFs over longer periods may not correlate to their benchmarks' performance. The ETFs should not be held by investors for long periods and should be used as short-term trading vehicles. These products are not suitable for all investors, and should be utilized only by sophisticated investors who understand the risks associated with the use of leverage, the consequences of seeking daily leveraged investment results and intend to actively monitor and manage their investments.

The ETFs with the word "Bull" in their name (the "Bull ETFs") attempt to provide investment results that correlate to 300% of the return of a benchmark index, meaning the Bull Funds attempt to move in the same direction as their respective target benchmark index.

The Funds with the word "Bear" in their name (the "Bear ETFs") attempt to provide investment results that correlate to -300% of the return of a benchmark index, meaning that the Bear Funds attempt to move in the opposite, or inverse, direction of their respective target benchmark index.

In seeking to achieve each ETF's daily investment results, Rafferty Asset Management, LLC ("Rafferty" or the "Adviser") relies upon a pre-determined investment model to generate orders resulting in repositioning each ETF's investments in accordance with its daily investment objective. Using this approach, Rafferty determines the type, quantity and mix of investment positions that it believes in combination should produce daily returns consistent with an ETF's objective. As a consequence, if an ETF is performing as designed, the return of the benchmark index will dictate the return for that ETF. Each ETF pursues its investment objective regardless of market conditions and does not take defensive positions.

DIREXION SEMI-ANNUAL REPORT

Each ETF has a clearly articulated goal which requires the ETF to seek economic exposure significantly in excess of its net assets. To meet its objectives, each ETF invests in some combination of financial instruments, including derivatives. Each ETF invests significantly in derivatives, including swap agreements. Rafferty uses these types of investments to produce economically "leveraged" investment results. Leveraging allows Rafferty to generate a greater positive or negative return than what would be generated on the invested capital without leverage, thus changing small market movements into larger changes in the value of the investments of an ETF.

The ETFs may use certain investment techniques, including investments in derivatives, which may be considered aggressive. Investments in derivatives in general are subject to market risks that may cause their prices to fluctuate dramatically over time. Additionally, use of such instruments may increase the volatility of the ETFs. The use of derivatives may expose the ETFs to additional risks that they would not be subject to if they invested directly in the securities underlying those derivatives, such as counterparty risk. The use of derivatives may result in larger losses or smaller gains than otherwise would be the case.

Because each ETF seeks daily investment results of its relevant benchmark, a comparison of the return of the ETF to the relevant benchmark tells you little about whether an ETF has met its investment objective. To determine if an ETF has met its daily investment goals, Rafferty maintains models which indicate the expected performance of each ETF as compared to the underlying relevant index. The models do not take into account the ETF's expense ratio or any transaction or trading fees associated with creating or maintaining an ETF's portfolio.

Factors Affecting Direxion Shares Performance:

Benchmark Performance – The daily performance of each ETF's benchmark index, and the factors and market conditions implicitly affecting that index, are the primary factors driving ETF performance. Given the daily goals, the series of daily index returns are most important. The market conditions that affected the benchmark indexes during the past year are described below.

Leverage – Each ETF seeks daily investment results (before fees and expenses) of either 300% (for the Bull ETFs) or -300% (for the Bear ETFs) of the performance of its respective underlying index. The use of leverage magnifies an ETF's gains or losses and increases the investment's risk and volatility. The Bear ETFs seek to achieve inverse magnified correlation to their respective underlying indexes.

Volatility and Compounding – The goal of leveraged ETFs is to provide a multiple of the daily return of an underlying index. Over periods longer than a single day, an ETF should not be expected to provide its respective multiple of the return of the underlying index. Due to the effects of compounding, a universal mathematical concept that applies to all investments, returns of the ETFs over longer periods are greater or less than the ETF's daily stated goal. Periods of high volatility that lack a clear trend hurt an ETF's performance while trending, low volatility markets enhance an ETF's performance.

Cost of Financing – In order to attain leveraged exposure, a Bull ETF incurs a cost of SOFR plus or minus a spread and a Bear ETF receives SOFR plus or minus a spread as applied to the borrowed portion of the ETF's exposure. The spread varies by both Fund and counterparty and is a function of market demand, hedging costs, access to balance sheet, borrow volatility, current counterparty exposure and administrative costs associated with the swap counterparty. Generally for most of the Bull ETFs, the financing costs will have a negative effect on tracking, but for Bear ETFs, the financing cost will have a positive effect on tracking. An increase in interest rates which effects the cost of financing will further impact an ETF's performance and ability to track its index.

Optimized Baskets – Each Bull ETF holds a basket of equities designed to provide returns that track its underlying index. In order to decrease transaction costs, certain Bull ETFs hold only a representative sample, or optimized basket, that tracks closely over time, but deviates from its underlying index in the short-term.

Equity Dividends and Bond Interest – Equity Bull ETFs are positively impacted by equity and index dividends as the ETFs receive those payments. Equity Bear ETFs are negatively impacted as they are obligated to pay the dividends. Treasury Bull ETFs receive interest, accrued on a daily basis, to account for the Treasury's semi-annual coupon payments while the Treasury Bear ETFs pay interest, accrued on a daily basis.

Fees, Expenses, and Transaction Costs – Fees and expenses are listed in each ETF's prospectus and may be higher than many traditional index ETFs' fees, which cause a greater negative impact on ETF performance. Transactions costs are not included in the expense ratio of the ETFs. Transaction costs can be higher due to the ETF's use of leverage, frequent creation and redemption activity, or trading securities that are comparatively less liquid.

For the Semi-Annual Period, the S&P Mid Cap 400® Index returned -9.88%.

An investor should carefully consider a Fund's investment objective, risks, charges, and expenses before investing. A Fund's prospectus and summary prospectus contain this and other information about the Direxion Shares. To obtain a Fund's prospectus and summary prospectus call 866-476-7523 or visit our website at direxion.com. A Fund's prospectus and summary prospectus should be read carefully before investing.

Investing in a Direxion Shares ETF may be more volatile than investing in broadly diversified funds. The use of leverage by an ETF increases the risk to the ETF. The Direxion Shares ETFs are not suitable for all investors and should be utilized only by sophisticated investors who understand leverage risk, consequences of seeking daily leveraged, or daily inverse leveraged, investment results and intend to actively monitor and manage their investment. The Direxion Shares ETFs are not designed to track their respective underlying indices over a period of time longer than one day.

The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate. An investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Returns for performance under one year are cumulative, not annualized. For the most recent month-end performance please visit the Funds website at direxion.com.

Short-term performance, in particular, is not a good indication of the Fund's future performance, and an investment should not be made based solely on returns. Because of ongoing market volatility, fund performance may be subject to substantial short-term changes. For additional information, see the Fund's prospectus.

Shares of the Direxion Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from a Fund. Market Price returns are based upon the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00 pm EST (when NAV is normally calculated) and do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Fund returns assume that dividends and capital gains distributions have been reinvested in the Fund at NAV. Some performance results reflect expense reimbursements or recoupments and fee waivers in effect during certain periods shown. Absent these reimbursements or recoupments and fee waivers, results would have been less favorable.

SOFR (Secured Overnight Financing Rate) is a broad measure of the cost of borrowing cash overnight collateralized by Treasury securities.

Direxion Shares Risks – An investment in the ETFs involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. The ETFs are non-diversified and include risks associated with concentration risk that results from the ETFs' investments in a particular industry or sector which can increase volatility. The use of derivatives such as futures contracts, forward contracts, options and swaps are subject to market risks that may cause their price to fluctuate over time. The ETF does not attempt to, and should not be expected to; provide returns which are a multiple of the return of the Index for periods other than a single day. For other risks including correlation, leverage, compounding, market volatility and specific risks regarding each sector, please read the prospectus.

The views of this letter were those of the Adviser as of April 30, 2022 and may not necessarily reflect his views on the date this letter is first published or anytime thereafter. These views are intended to help shareholders in understanding the ETFs' present investment methodology and do not constitute investment advice.

Expense Example (Unaudited)

April 30, 2022

As a shareholder of the Direxion Shares ETF Trust, you incur two types of costs: (1) transaction costs, for purchasing and selling shares and exchange fees; and (2) ongoing costs, including management fees; and other Fund expenses. This example is intended to help you understand your ongoing costs (in dollars) of investing in a fund and to compare these costs with the ongoing costs of investing in other mutual funds.

The example is based on initial investments of $1,000 invested at the beginning of the period and held the entire period (November 1, 2021 to April 30, 2022).

Actual Expenses

The first line under each Fund in the following table provides information about actual account values and actual expenses. You may use the information in this line, together with the amount you invested, to estimate the expenses that you paid over the period. Simply divide your account value by $1,000 (for example, an $8,600 account value divided by $1,000 = 8.6), then multiply the result by the number in the first line for your Fund under the heading entitled "Expenses Paid During Period November 1, 2021 to April 30, 2022" to estimate the expenses you paid on your account during this period.

Hypothetical Example for Comparison Purposes

The second line of the following table below provides information about hypothetical account values and hypothetical expenses based on each Fund's actual expense ratio and an assumed rate of return of 5% per year before expenses, which is not the Fund's actual return. The hypothetical account values and expenses may not be used to estimate the actual ending account balance or expenses you paid for the period. You may use this information to compare the ongoing costs of investing in your Fund and other funds. To do so, compare this 5% hypothetical example with the 5% hypothetical examples that appear in the shareholder reports of the other funds.

Please note that the expenses shown in the table are meant to highlight your ongoing costs only and do not reflect any transactional costs, such as brokerage commissions paid on purchases and sales of Fund shares. Therefore, the second line under each Fund in the table is useful in comparing ongoing Fund costs only, and will not help you determine the relative total costs of owning different funds. In addition, if these transactional costs were included, your costs would have been higher.
