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 find out which ETFs are gaining or losing.

Winners

Global X Lithium ETF (LIT) 6.4%

Strength is driving investors back into market-correlated asset classes. Equity-backed funds related to the commodities sector are seeing a particularly strong run-up. LIT, Global X Uranium ETF (URA) and the First Trust ISE Global Copper Index ETF (CU) are among the industry's biggest gainers.

Volatile, futures-tracking ETNs are strengthening as well. The iPath Dow Jones UBS Sugar Subindex Total Return ETN (SGG) is up after eight consecutive days of losses.

PowerShares Financial Preferred Portfolio (PGF) 6.1%

Income-focused ETFs are seeing strength as the market's upward action leads investors to take cautious steps back into the risk. Preferred stock ETFs such as PGF and iShares S&P Preferred Stock Index Fund (PFF) are seeing welcomed gains, recouping losses suffered during their steep, three-day slides.

Master-limited partnerships are rising as well, pushing the JPMorgan Alerian MLP Index ETN (AMJ) to industry-leading gains.

The yields associated with MLPs may make them attractive among income-focused investors. However, given the shakiness recently in the energy markets recently, this corner of the marketplace may be in for some rocky action.

iShares MSCI Australia Index Fund (EWA) 5.3%

iShares Australia and other commodities-heavy international ETFs are leading the way higher. Top holdings BHP Billiton (BHP) and Rio Tinto (RIO) are up over 5% and 8% respectively. Together, these two mining goliaths account for close to one-fifth of the fund's assets.

The iShares MSCI Chile Investable Market Index Fund (ECH) is another big mover.

SPDR Dow Jones Global Real Estate ETF (RWO) 4.5%

Real estate-related ETFs are witnessing gains as market strength instills investor confidence in the global growth picture. RWO, iShares FTSE NAREIT Mortgage Plus Capped Index Fund (REM) and iShares Cohen & Steers Realty Majors Index Fund (ICF) are three of the biggest movers from this sector.

Interestingly, the homebuilder sector is seeing bipolar action. While the SPDR S&P Homebuilder ETF (XHB) is seeing small gains, the iShares Dow Jones U.S. Home Construction Index Fund (ITB) is off nearly 1%.
