Proshares Inverse ETFs

A few thoughts on these: Is it getting too easy to short with leverage? This will ding Rydex' business somewhat; How might this affect the indicators people have developed using Rydex funds?  (i.e, The Rydex Nova/Ursa Ratio)  

The 2 to 1 leveraged ETFs come out at the end of the month (~June 29th)

I have been waiting for these for a long time. I hate only being able to get in and out of the Rydex and Profunds inverse funds on an end of day basis.
