Letter to Shareholders

Dear Shareholders,

This Annual Report for the Direxion Shares ETF Trust exchange-traded funds (the "ETFs") covers the period from November 1, 2022 to October 31, 2023 (the "Annual Period").

Market Review:

The Annual Period was filled with ups and downs in the equity markets as inflation, the banking crisis, artificial intelligence (AI), and the housing market were top of mind for many investors. In November and December of 2022, many broad-based indices fell. However, 2023 started out on a stronger note as equity markets rallied in January, but market sentiment in February was much more bearish on the heels of a higher-than-expected consumer price index* (CPI) reading. Despite that, for the first half of 2023, both the NASDAQ-100®​ Index* and S&P 500®​ Index* finished up 39.4% and 16.95%, respectively. The winning streak came to an end in August, as both indices posted their first monthly decline since February and continued to fall in September and October. China effectively ended their zero-Covid policy in December, causing Chinese and Chinese-adjacent equities to rally. In early March, three regional banks collapsed, one after another, beginning with Silicon Valley Bank, causing the financials segment of the S&P 500®​ Index to fall nearly 10% in March. Some fears in the banking sector, specifically smaller banks, bled into the following months. In May, NVIDIA Corporation delivered an outstanding earnings report centered around AI, and its market value rose more in one day than any stock in history. AI has come into focus as a market catalyst, and many AI-related names experienced higher trading volumes, although interest in the space slowed down towards the end of the Annual Period. By the end of the Annual Period, the housing market led headlines, as mortgage rates reached levels not seen since 2000, causing a reduction in housing prices in some locations. October marked the third consecutive month of falling median home prices. Aside from affecting market sentiment, equities in construction, real estate development, and other related industries were especially impacted. The Annual Period began and ended with recessionary fears and uncertainty surrounding the market environment, although inflation began to moderate.

All eyes were on the Federal Reserve during the Annual Period as they attempted to combat inflation and market volatility. As the Federal Reserve conducted a series of rate hikes, Treasury yields peaked in November, and started to go down in the latter half of November and December. In fact, bonds outperformed stocks in 2022, which is extremely rare, although both ended 2022 in the red. Aside from a few exceptions, short-term yields tended to be higher than long-term yields, which is atypical and causes an inverted yield curve. Inflation started to come down in January, and the Federal Reserve reduced the rate hike on February 1st to 25 basis points* from the 50 or 75 basis point hikes in 2022. Rate hikes paused in June and resumed in July at 25 basis points. In terms of inflation, the fixed income market rallied in January as headline CPI ticked down. However, the February CPI reading was higher-than-expected, prompting markets to anticipate further hawkish monetary policy. Although inflation has been sticky for much of the Annual Period, it is starting to come down and the Federal Reserve maintains the inflation target remains at 2%. The banking collapse also influenced the fixed income market, causing interest rate expectations to decrease and lending standards to tighten. In early August, U.S. long-term debt was downgraded by Fitch, moving Treasury yields higher. In both the September and October Federal Open Market Committee meetings, the Federal Reserve left rates unchanged, but made no mention of cutting rates. Additionally, in response to the growing federal deficit, the U.S. Treasury issued more bonds throughout the last few months of the Annual Period. Bond yields ended the Annual Period at multi-year highs.

Direxion Shares Operational Review:

The discussion below relates to the performance of the ETFs for the 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 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

DIREXION ANNUAL REPORT

risks associated with shorting and/or 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%, before fees and expenses, of the daily performance 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%, before fees and expenses, of the daily performance 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.

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. Deviation from the model may be due to a combination of asset fluctuation, expenses, transaction costs, including swap contract related costs and underlying index volatility.

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 daily 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

DIREXION ANNUAL REPORT
5


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.

Index Volatility:

For equities, the Annual Period started off very volatile but stabilized slightly throughout the year. The VIX index, a measure of volatility and market sentiment, reached an Annual Period-high of 30.81 on March 13, 2023, but ended the period at 18.14 on October 31, 2023. For bonds, the Federal Reserve's rate hiking cycle has led to much higher-than-normal volatility across the fixed income market and was even higher than most stocks by the end of the Annual Period. Although stock and bond volatility are historically closely aligned, the Annual Period ended with a divergence between the two, causing confusion for some investors.

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.

S&P 500®​ Index: The S&P 500 Index, or Standard & Poor's 500 Index, is a market-capitalization-weighted index of 500 leading publicly traded companies in the U.S.

Leveraged and Inverse ETFs pursue daily leveraged investment objectives which means they are riskier than alternatives which do not use leverage. They seek daily goals and should not be expected to track the underlying index over periods longer than one day. They are not suitable for all investors and should be utilized only by sophisticated investors who understand leverage risk and who actively manage their investments.

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

DIREXION ANNUAL REPORT

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 ETFs do not attempt to, and should not be expected to; provide returns which are a multiple of the return of their respective underlying 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 each ETF's prospectus.

The views of this letter were those of the Adviser as of October 31, 2023, and may not necessarily reflect its 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.

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. As stated in the current prospectus, the Fund's total annual operating expense ratio (gross) is 1.04%. Rafferty Asset Management, LLC has contractually agreed to waive all or a portion of its management fee and/or reimburse the Fund for other expenses through September 1, 2025 to the extent the Total Annual Operating Expenses exceed 0.95% (excluding, as applicable, among other expenses, taxes, swap financing and related costs, acquired fund fees and expenses, dividends or interest on short positions, other interest expenses, brokerage commissions and extraordinary expenses). The performance table and graph do not reflect the deduction of taxes that a shareholder would pay on Fund distributions or the redemption of Fund shares. For the Fund's most recent month end performance please visit www.direxion.com.

A fund that meets its daily target over a period of time will not necessarily produce the returns that might be expected in light of the returns of its index or benchmark for that period. Differences may result from the compounding effect of market fluctuation and the use of leverage. The pursuit of daily goals may result in daily, leveraged compounding, which means that the return of an index over a period of time greater than one day multiplied by a fund's specified multiple (300%) will not generally equal a fund's performance over that same period.

This chart illustrates the performance of a hypothetical $10,000 investment made on the Fund's inception and is not intended to imply any future performance. Shares of Direxion Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Performance reflects reinvestment of all dividend and capital gains distributions. During this period, some of the Fund's fees were waived and/or expenses reimbursed; otherwise, the Fund's performance would have been lower.

The S&P Mid Cap®​ 400 Index measures the performance of the mid-cap segment of the U.S. equity universe. The index is a capitalization-weighted index composed of 400 domestic common stocks. The performance of the S&P Mid Cap®​ 400 Index does not reflect the deduction of fees associated with the Fund, such as investment management fees. Investors cannot invest directly in an index, although they can invest in its underlying securities.

Market Exposure

The Fund seeks daily exposure of 300% of its NAV through a combination of equities and derivatives. "Market Exposure" includes the value of total investments (including the contract value of any derivatives) and excludes any short-term investments and cash equivalents divided by Net Assets.

A fund that meets its daily target over a period of time will not necessarily produce the returns that might be expected in light of the returns of its index or benchmark for that period.

The pursuit of daily goals may result in daily, leveraged compounding, which means that the return of an index over a period of time greater than one day multiplied by a fund's specified inverse multiple (-300%) will not generally equal a fund's performance over that same period.

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. As stated in the current prospectus, the Fund's total annual operating expense ratio (gross) is 1.03%. Rafferty Asset Management, LLC has contractually agreed to waive all or a portion of its management fee and/or reimburse the Fund for other expenses through September 1, 2025 to the extent the Total Annual Operating Expenses exceed 0.95% (excluding, as applicable, among other expenses, taxes, swap financing and related costs, acquired fund fees and expenses, dividends or interest on short positions, other interest expenses, brokerage commissions and extraordinary expenses). The performance table and graph do not reflect the deduction of taxes that a shareholder would pay on Fund distributions or the redemption of Fund shares. For the Fund's most recent month end performance please visit www.direxion.com.

A fund that meets its daily target over a period of time will not necessarily produce the returns that might be expected in light of the returns of its index or benchmark for that period. Differences may result from the compounding effect of market fluctuation, the use of leverage and a Bear Fund's inverse correlation. The pursuit of daily goals may result in daily, leveraged compounding, which means that the return of an index over a period of time greater than one day multiplied by a fund's specified inverse multiple (-300%) will not generally equal a fund's performance over that same period.

This chart illustrates the performance of a hypothetical $10,000 investment made on the Fund's inception and is not intended to imply any future performance. Shares of Direxion Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Performance reflects reinvestment of all dividend and capital gains distributions.

The Russell 2000®​ Index measures the small cap segment of the U.S. equity universe and includes the smallest 2,000 securities in the Russell 3000®​ Index based on market cap. The performance of the Russell 2000®​ Index does not reflect the deduction of fees associated with the Fund, such as investment management fees. Investors cannot invest directly in an index, although they can invest in its underlying securities.

Rafferty Asset Management, LLC has contractually agreed to waive all or a portion of its management fee and/or reimburse the Fund for other expenses through September 1, 2025 to the extent the Total Annual Operating Expenses exceed 0.95% (excluding, as applicable, among other expenses, taxes, swap financing and related costs, acquired fund fees and expenses, dividends or interest on short positions, other interest expenses, brokerage commissions and extraordinary expenses).

A fund that meets its daily target over a period of time will not necessarily produce the returns that might be expected in light of the returns of its index or benchmark for that period. Differences may result from the compounding effect of market fluctuation and the use of leverage. The pursuit of daily goals may result in daily, leveraged compounding, which means that the return of an index over a period of time greater than one day multiplied by a fund's specified multiple (300%) will not generally equal a fund's performance over that same period.

This chart illustrates the performance of a hypothetical $10,000 investment made on the Fund's inception and is not intended to imply any future performance. Shares of Direxion Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Performance reflects reinvestment of all dividend and capital gains distributions.

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. As stated in the current prospectus, the Fund's total annual operating expense ratio (gross) is 1.13%. Rafferty Asset Management, LLC has contractually agreed to waive all or a portion of its management fee and/or reimburse the Fund for other expenses through September 1, 2025 to the extent the Total Annual Operating Expenses exceed 0.95% (excluding, as applicable, among other expenses, taxes, swap financing and related costs, acquired fund fees and expenses, dividends or interest on short positions, other interest expenses, brokerage commissions and extraordinary expenses).The performance table and graph do not reflect the deduction of taxes that a shareholder would pay on Fund distributions or the redemption of Fund shares. For the Fund's most recent month end performance please visit www.direxion.com.

A fund that meets its daily target over a period of time will not necessarily produce the returns that might be expected in light of the returns of its index or benchmark for that period. Differences may result from the compounding effect of market fluctuation and the use of leverage. The pursuit of daily goals may result in daily, leveraged compounding, which means that the return of an index over a period of time greater than one day multiplied by a fund's specified multiple (300%) will not generally equal a fund's performance over that same period.

This chart illustrates the performance of a hypothetical $10,000 investment made on the Fund's inception and is not intended to imply any future performance. Shares of Direxion Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Performance reflects reinvestment of all dividend and capital gains distributions. During this period, some of the Fund's fees were waived and/or expenses reimbursed; otherwise, the Fund's performance would have been lower.

The S&P Pharmaceuticals Select Industry Index is a modified equal-weighted index that is designed to measure performance of the stocks comprising the S&P Total Market Index that are classified in the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) pharmaceuticals subindustry. Investors cannot invest directly in an index, although they can invest in its underlying securities.

Market Exposure

The Fund seeks daily exposure of 300% of its NAV through a combination of equities and derivatives. "Market Exposure" includes the value of total investments (including the contract value of any derivatives) and excludes any short-term investments and cash equivalents divided by Net Assets.

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. As stated in the current prospectus, the Fund's total annual operating expense ratio (gross) is 1.06%. Rafferty Asset Management, LLC has contractually agreed to waive all or a portion of its management fee and/or reimburse the Fund for other expenses through September 1, 2025 to the extent the Total Annual Operating Expenses exceed 0.95% (excluding, as applicable, among other expenses, taxes, swap financing and related costs, acquired fund fees and expenses, dividends or interest on short positions, other interest expenses, brokerage commissions and extraordinary expenses).The performance table and graph do not reflect the deduction of taxes that a shareholder would pay on Fund distributions or the redemption of Fund shares. For the Fund's most recent month end performance please visit www.direxion.com.

A fund that meets its daily target over a period of time will not necessarily produce the returns that might be expected in light of the returns of its index or benchmark for that period. Differences may result from the compounding effect of market fluctuation and the use of leverage. The pursuit of daily goals may result in daily, leveraged compounding, which means that the return of an index over a period of time greater than one day multiplied by a fund's specified multiple (300%) will not generally equal a fund's performance over that same period.

This chart illustrates the performance of a hypothetical $10,000 investment made on the Fund's inception and is not intended to imply any future performance. Shares of Direxion Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Performance reflects reinvestment of all dividend and capital gains distributions. During this period, some of the Fund's fees were waived and/or expenses reimbursed; otherwise, the Fund's performance would have been lower.

A fund that meets its daily target over a period of time will not necessarily produce the returns that might be expected in light of the returns of its index or benchmark for that period. Differences may result from the compounding effect of market fluctuation, the use of leverage and a Bear Fund's inverse correlation. The pursuit of daily goals may result in daily, leveraged compounding, which means that the return of an index over a period of time greater than one day multiplied by a fund's specified inverse multiple (-300%) will not generally equal a fund's performance over that same period.

Expense Example (Unaudited)

October 31, 2023

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 (May 1, 2023 to October 31, 2023).

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 May 1, 2023 to October 31, 2023" 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.
