Dion's Wednesday ETF Winners and Losers

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 Turkey Investable Market Index Fund (TUR) 1.6%

Internationally, ETFs tracking Turkey and Indonesia are rallying today and this bodes well for investors holding TUR and the Market Vectors Indonesia ETF (IDX).

Both TUR and IDX have staged strong rallies throughout September as investors favor emerging markets over domestic economies.

ETFS Physical Palladium Shares (PALL) 1.1%

Palladium has enjoyed a nice bounce as investors pour into the precious metals industry and the markets continues a bullish streak.

Because they are used extensively in the production of catalytic converters, palladium and its cousin platinum are heavily dependent on the performance of the auto industry.

United States Natural Gas Fund (UNG) 0.9%

After trading sideways through the end of August and the start of September, the natural gas ETF has managed to bounce. This fund may have some steam left in its tank as hurricane season continues and investors in the East prepare for the cool autumn and winter months. However, I would advise against trying your luck with this troubled fund.

Losers

CurrencyShares Japanese Yen Trust (FXY) -2.9%

After weeks of warnings from Japanese government officials, the nation finally took action against its currency which has been on an upward trajectory. While today's drop is notable, the long-term outcome of this intervention is yet to be seen. The effect may be minimized if investors continue to turn to the yen as a safe haven and FXY may still hold promise.

iShares MSCI Thailand Investable Market Index Fund (THD) -0.9%

The Thai markets have staged an impressive rally since the middle of May. Over the past few days, however, the fund appears to be taking a break. As with IDX and TUR, THD has been a popular fund as investors seek sanctuary from the economic storms brewing in many developed regions of the globe.

iShares Dow Jones U.S. Regional Bank Index Fund (IAT) -0.6%

Monday's optimism towards the financial industry has evaporated, leading regional banks to two consecutive days of losses. Although IAT is heading lower, the same can not be said for larger banks. The iShares Dow Jones U.S. Financial Services Index Fund (IYG) has managed to hold onto slight gains on the day.

The financial industry will likely remain risky as firms find ways to cope with the steeping Dodd-Frank financial reform bill.
