Dion's Tuesday 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.


United States Natural Gas Fund (UNG) 2.6%

Natural gas prices are staging a recovery after Monday's downturn, aided by a promising weather forecast.

Interestingly, the effect of this upward action is mixed across futures-based products. While UNG is among the industry's strongest gainers, the iPath Dow Jones UBS Natural Gas Subindex Total Return ETN (GAZ) is seeing only limited upward action. GAZ's substantial premium is likely contributing to this divergence.

Market Vectors Russia ETF (RSX) 2.3%

RSX and other Russia-related ETFs are recovering from Monday's tumble. Outside of Russia, other emerging Europe ETFs are moving higher as well. iShares MSCI Turkey Investable Market Index Fund (TUR) and SPDR S&P Emerging Europe ETF (GUR) are among the industry's biggest movers.

The Market Vectors Egypt ETF (EGPT), iShares MSCI Indonesia Investable Market Index Fund (EIDO), and iShares MSCI Sweden Index Fund (EWD) are other international funds in positive territory.

Market Vectors Steel ETF (SLX) 2.1%

Shares of steel companies are rising on the heels of Steel Dynamics' (STLD) promising earnings report. Although the company accounts for less than 3% of SLX's portfolio, the company's strength is being felt across the sector.

This morning's optimistic housing numbers are also likely aiding SLX climb higher.


iPath Dow Jones UBS Cotton Subindex Total Return ETN (BAL) -4.5%

The cotton ETN continues to trade in a choppy manner. Tuesday's losses are pushing BAL back to levels seen during the opening half of March.

Single crop funds such as BAL and iPath Dow Jones UBS Sugar Subindex Total Return ETN (SGG) have been exciting to watch. However, given their volatile nature, these are not products I would recommend to long-term investors.

iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures ETN (VXX) -4.4%

Although it saw a nice jump on Monday, these gains have been wiped away and VXX has once again returned to its downward path. The fear-based fund is treading along at brand new all time lows.

The iPath S&P 500 VIX Mid Term Futures ETN (VXZ) is in negative territory as well. However, the fund's decline is less dramatic and it is still well off its record lows.
