Dion's Tuesday ETF Winners and Losers

Stocks in this article: SIL VXX IYT

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.


Global X Silver Miners ETF (SIL) 0.8%

Precious metals are scoring gains today, with silver miners leading the pack. Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners (GDXJ) is underperforming its large-cap cousin, Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX).

Platinum and palladium, which tend to move in correlation to the rest of the market, are struggling today. ETFS Physical Palladium Shares (PALL) is taking a hit, while ETFS Physical Platinum Shares (PPLT) is relatively unchanged on the day.

iPath S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures ETN (VXX) 1.1%

After the market failed to hold onto gains brought on by Monday's yuan revaluation, the markets are considerably choppy. With investors seeking out the safety of silver and gold in an effort to avoid risk, fear is regaining a presence.

VXX is now trading at its 50-day moving average. It will be interesting to see if the fund can hold onto these levels.


United States Natural Gas Fund (UNG) -2.3%

Natural gas prices are tumbling, pushing UNG and First Trust ISE-Revere Natural Gas Index ETF (FCG) lower. Today's dip can be attributed to investors booking profits after prices rallies in response to ideal weather conditions. Typically, when the temperature rises, natural gas stockpiles are drawn upon, driving prices higher.

Heading into the summer, investors should keep a close eye on the forecast as it will likely be a strong determinant of UNG's direction.

iShares Dow Jones U.S. Transportation Average Index Fund (IYT) -2.6%

The broad transportation industry is dipping today as IYT continues to struggle to get above its 50-day moving average. Today, shippers are hurting in light of the Baltic Dry Index's recent dismal performance and airlines are facing negative press after the FAA advised American Airlines (AMR) to inspect its fleet of 767s after cracks were discovered.

First Trust S&P REIT ETF (FRI) -2.1%

Thanks to a mixed housing numbers report, REIT ETFs are following through Monday's dips with another day of declines. FRI saw a strong rally at the start of June with the rest of the market. However thanks to a couple of dismal reports over the past two weeks, the fund's trajectory has reversed, driving the fund back below its 50-day moving average.
