Leveraged ETF are mandated to provide a multiple of the return on an index for intraday time periods. I present statistical estimates of beta for two leveraged ETF and one index at sampling rates from one to twenty five minute sampling. I find that beta is close to the leverage factor for sampling rates between ten and twenty five minutes, which suggests the assets are being well priced.
