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) 2.3%The futures-backed corn ETF is powering higher as the agriculture industry continues to draw crowds.
CORN has witnessed a nice week-long bounce off of its 200-day moving average. This upward action has helped the fund regain some ground following its late June selloff.
iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures ETN (VXX) 1.9%Volatility-tracking ETNs like VXX are gathering steam at the close of the week following this morning's disappointing employment data.
Although these gains have helped VXX recover most of the ground lost during Thursday's selloff, the fund remains well off the levels witnessed prior to its June tumble.
iShares Barclays 20+ Year Treasury Bond Fund (TLT) 1.2%This morning's weak employment data dashed investor confidence, leading many to abandon risky assets. The flight to safety has benefited long-term U.S. treasuries as TLT ascends to its 50-day moving average.
The action witnessed over the past few days reminds investors of the risky nature of the markets. Maintain some defensive exposure in order to avoid getting blindsided by shakeups.
