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.


Teucrium Corn ETF (CORN) 2.4%

Corn prices are starting the week off on a strong note, leading the futures-based CORN to notable gains. The iPath Dow Jones UBS Grains Subindex Total Return ETN (JJG) is benefiting as well. This fund is designed to track a collection of corn, soybean, and wheat futures contracts.

iShares Silver Trust (SLV) 2.0%

Silver prices are powering higher, lifting the physically based SLV and ETFS Physical Silver Shares (SIVR) to top spots among today's winners.

This shiny industrial precious metal is currently flirting with the all-time highs of $50 per ounce last seen in early 1980.

First Trust ISE Global Copper Index Fund (CU) 1.3%

The equity-based CU is witnessing strength, helped higher by news that gold goliath Barrick Gold (ABX) announced a $7.7 billion bid for Canada's Equinox Minerals.

Equinox is listed as CU's fourth largest position.

Despite strength from copper miners, futures-based base metal funds are running into headwinds on Monday. iPath Dow Jones UBS Copper Subindex Total Return ETN (JJC) and PowerShares DB Base Metals Fund (DBB) are among the biggest decliners.


Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX) -2.2%

Precious metal-linked miner ETFs are struggling on Monday. GDX and Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (GDXJ) were both off over 2% in early afternoon trading.

Silver miners are struggling as well. Global X Silver Miners ETF (SIL) is down despite the metal's rise.

iPath Dow Jones UBS Sugar Subindex Total Return ETN (SGG) -1.7%

Grain prices are heading higher. The same can not be said, however, for other aspects of the agricultural industry. Sugar prices are taking a hit, leading SGG to notable losses.

SGG's decline since February has been steep. However, as I've warned in the past, this is not surprising given the inherent volatility of these single crop futures funds. Use caution when handling these products.
