Dion's Friday 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

iPath Dow Jones UBS Sugar Total Return Subindex ETN (SGG) 3.8%

Sugar prices are heading higher on Friday. Although the sweetener stuck to a dramatic upward path throughout the latter half of 2010, it fluctuated in the first week of the new year.

Since SGG's stumble during the middle of November, the fund's 50-day moving average has shown to be an area of support. This level will be interesting to watch if choppy action is in store for this fund.

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

This fear index-tracking ETN spent much of the last week treading lower, testing brand new all time lows. However, Friday's employment report miss was enough to instill some jitters into the market, leading investors to these products.

A fellow VIX-tracking ETN, the iPath S&P 500 VIX MidTerm Futures ETN (VXZ) is heading higher today as well.

Losers

Market Vectors Indonesia ETF (IDX) -3.7%

Indonesia's markets have seen a dramatic tumble over the past few days, once again reminding investors of the volatile nature of emerging and frontier market ETFs.

On Friday, Indonesian stocks took a hit as inflation fears mounted.

Elsewhere in the realm of Asia-linked ETFs, including Market Vectors India Small Cap Index ETF (SCIF) and Market Vectors Vietnam ETF (VNM) could also be seen taking losses.

iShares MSCI Turkey Investable Market Index Fund (TUR) -2.2%

The European debt crisis continues to weigh heavily on nations across the continent, leading funds such as TUR and the iShares MSCI Spain ETF (EWP) to behave in a choppy manner.

Investors will want to keep a watch on the TUR's 50- and 200-day moving averages. The fund has been locked between these two levels since mid-November.

SPDR KBW Regional Banking ETF (KRE) -2.1%

On Friday, an unfavorable foreclosure-related court ruling played a major part in pressuring financial industry leaders, including JPMorgan (JPM) and Bank of America (BAC) lower. While Wall Street giants felt pressure, it was the smaller, more volatile regional banks that dropped the hardest, leading KRE to suffer heavier losses than ETFs aimed at larger financial entities.
