Dion's Monday ETF Winners and Losers

Stocks in this article: GAZ VXX NLR RSX EWP SIL

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

iPath Dow Jones UBS Natural Gas Total Return Subindex ETN (GAZ) 6.0%

Despite the market weakness heading off this week, investors are piling into the natural gas industry in hopes of taking advantage of both low prices and unseasonably cold weather in the northeastern United States.

GAZ continues to be a fund to look out for. Although its premium has been pared back a bit from its earlier highs, at 8%, this fund remains disconnected from its underlying assets.

Global X Silver Miners ETF (SIL) 4.1%

Precious metals are jumping today in light of the shaky start to the week. While SIL is leading the industry, physically-based products such as ETFS Physical Palladium Shares (PALL) and iShares Silver Trust( (SLV) are also enjoying positive gains.

Gold prices tested the $1,400 per ounce level today, leading Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (GDXJ) and its large-cap cousin, Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX) to gains as well.

Market Vectors Nuclear Energy ETF (NLR) 2.9%

The nuclear energy industry is also heading higher today, powering NLR to nice gains. In this morning's "Five ETFs to Watch," I noted that industry leader Cameco (CCJ) would be an important player to watch this morning in light of its quarterly earnings report. As of early this afternoon, the firm is up 5%.

Fellow energy-related ETF, Market Vectors Coal ETF (KOL) is gaining ground as well.

Fellow energy-related ETF, Market Vectors Coal ETF (KOL) is gaining ground as well.

iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures ETN (VXX) 1.4%

Last week, VXX was the ETF industry's biggest decliner, losing 15% of its value during its four-day streak of losses. Today, however, VXX is at last finding some strength, erasing some of these losses.

Market volatility persists but I expect the VIX-based ETN to continue to throw investors for a loop.

Losers

Market Vectors Russia ETF (RSX) -1.7%

A number of ETFs designed to track various members of the international community are mimicking the U.S. and heading south today. Leading the global retreat are funds designed to track members of the popular BRIC acronym. RSX and Market Vectors Brazil Small Cap ETF (BRF) , and the iShares S&P India Nifty Fifty Index Fund (INDY) are among the biggest laggards.
