Dion's Monday ETF Winners and Losers

Stocks in this article: BAL SLV SCIF NLR IDX VXZ

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.


iPath Dow Jones UBS Cotton Total Return Subindex ETN (BAL) 4.4%

Cotton and sugar are seeing noticeable gains today, leading BAL and iPath Dow Jones UBS Sugar Total Return Subindex ETN (SGG) further along the upward trajectories they have stuck to for months.

PowerShares DB Agriculture Fund (DBA) which sets aside a portion of its portfolio to these two crops, is moving higher today as well, jumping 1.9%.

iShares Silver Trust (SLV) 3.3%

The markets started the new week on a generally strong note, with all three major U.S. indices locking in gains. The positive action is boding well for industry linked precious metals as SLV and ETFS Physical Palladium Shares (PALL).

Various miner-related funds are scoring gains as well. The Global X Silver Miners ETF (SIL) and the Global X Copper Miners ETF (COPX) are two noticeable movers.

Market Vectors India Small Cap Index ETF (SCIF) 3.1%

After getting battered last week amidst concerns about corruption, the Indian marketplace is at last scoring some gains, leading ETFs linked to the nation's economy higher. The positive action is promising for the nation's smallest companies, lifting SCIF from the record lows seen last week.

Market Vectors Nuclear Energy ETF (NLR) 2.4%

The nuclear energy industry-linked NLR is finding strength today, buoyed by top holding Cameco (CCJ). On Monday, the large, Canadian-based miner gained over 3% thanks to increasing uranium prices.

As with any alternative energy ETF, investors need to keep an eye on macro issues when using NLR. Concerns about the state of the global economic recovery can weigh heavily on its performance.


iPath S&P 500 VIX Mid-Term Futures ETN (VXZ) -1.2%

The promising performance seen at the start of the day is weighing heavily on VXZ. Interestingly, however, while this fund is getting knocked, its sister product, the iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures ETN (VXX) is relatively unchanged.
