Dion's Monday 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 S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures ETN (VXX) 3.6%

The markets got off to a rocky start after reports that S&P downgraded its U.S. debt outlook to negative. In response to this news, fear-based VIX ETNs got a lift, helping VXX power off of previous all-time lows. The iPath S&P VIX Mid Term Futures ETN (VXZ), meanwhile, is back above its 50-day moving average.

iPath Dow Jones UBS Grains Subindex Total Return ETN (JJG) 2.0%

Despite broad market weakness, grain prices are gaining ground and pushing JJG and the Teucrium Corn ETF (CORN) higher.

Agricultural products are attractive. However, as we have witnessed in recent weeks, they can also be highly volatile. Investors looking for safe exposure to corn, sugar and other crops should turn to the PowerShares DB Agriculture Fund (DBA).

Losers

Market Vectors Egypt ETF (EGPT) -5.1%

The Egyptian marketplace is tumbling hard on Monday as the nation cracks down on corruption. This is leading the Egypt ETF to lock in brand new all-time lows. As I've explained in the past, EGPT remains a violently volatile fund. Investors would be best off sticking to the sidelines to avoid its wild day-to-day swings.

iShares MSCI Turkey Investable Market Index Fund (TUR) -4.6%

Europe is facing pressure in response to concerns that Finland's recent election results could threaten bailouts. Although EU-focused ETFs are lower, emerging Europe funds are witnessing the steepest declines. TUR and SPDR S&P Emerging Europe ETF (GUR) are taking the biggest hits.

iPath Dow Jones UBS Natural Gas Subindex Total Return ETN (GAZ) -4.5%

Natural gas futures ETFs and ETNs are retreating, pressured by a combination of mild weather forecasts and broad market weakness.

GAZ's heavy premium is causing it to dramatically lag the United States Natural Gas Fund (UNG). UNG is currently down 1.9%.

ETFS Physical Palladium Shares (PALL) -3.9%

The precious metals realm is seeing mixed action. While downward action is steering investors away from industry-linked metals such as palladium and platinum, defensive gold ETFs such as iShares Gold Trust (IAU) are holding ground in positive territory.

On the silver front, physically based funds such as iShares Silver Trust (SLV) are powering higher while the Global X Silver Miners ETF (SIL) is following the market lower.

All prices as of 2:16 PM EST

At the time of publication, Dion Money Management owned IAU and DBA.
