Dion's Monday ETF Winners and Losers

Stocks in this article: EWT RWR SLX

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Welcome to Don Dion's Daily ETF Winners and Losers. Be sure to stop by each day to get a feel of who's winning and who's losing when it comes to ETFs.

Winners

iShares MSCI Taiwan Index Fund (EWT) 1.6%

iShares Taiwan is enjoying some nice gains today as the global economic recovery drives investors into the nation's markets.

Looking to this week, earnings season may provide some direction for EWT as top holding Taiwan Semiconductors (TSM) is scheduled on Tuesday to report its performance over the past three months. Although a good report would typically be enough power this fund higher, based on the market's reaction to other tech companies throughout this season, numbers will have to amaze.

TSM accounts for nearly 14% of the fund's total portfolio.

SPDR Dow Jones REIT ETF (RWR) 1.5%

Real estate continues to power higher thanks to growing positive sentiment across the industry stemming from last week's stronger-than-expected report on new home sales.

Though impressive, investors should be cautious of the real estate industry as we get closer to Friday when the government tax credit for home buyers officially expires.

Market Vectors Steel ETF (SLX) 0.9%

Steel is up today with iron ore producers and steelmakers trading higher.

From February until the start of April, SLX scored consistent gains, allowing it to successfully overcome its 50-day moving average. However, in recent weeks the fund's trajectory has stumbled, causing the fund to fall back to its 50-day moving average. Over the past two days, the fund successfully tested support.

Investors may want to take a look at this fund's performance over the next few days to see if its recent reversal can translate into a longer trend.

Losers

SPDR KBW Regional Banking ETF (KRE) -2.3%

Ongoing debate in Washington over financial reform is weighing on the financial industry today with regional banks taking the brunt of it.

Today, Warren Buffett dominated headlines as the investor attempted to shield Berkshire Hathaway's (BRK.A) massive derivative portfolio from Washington's regulatory hammer. Unfortunately, the government does not appear willing to budge and Buffett's own "financial weapons of mass destruction" will receive no special treatment.
