Dion's Thursday ETF Winners and Losers

Stocks in this article: VXX GDXJ EIS THD EWG

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.


Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (GDXJ) 2.7%

After suffering two days of losses, gold miners are heading into solid positive territory. Leading the climb higher is GDXJ, which tracks a basket of small, volatile junior producers.

Physically-backed gold ETFs like SPDR Gold Shares (GLD) and iShares Gold Trust (IAU) are relatively unchanged.

iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures ETN (VXX) 2.0%

It has been a wild day so far as market commentators and investors digest news of Steve Jobs' resignation from Apple (AAPL) and Warren Buffett's decision to invest $5 billion in Bank of America (BAC).

The broader market, meanwhile, is taking a hit as economic turmoil remains fresh on investor minds. In response, the fear-tracking VIX is climbing higher and lifting VXX to notable gains.


iShares MSCI Israel Capped Investable Market Index Fund (EIS) -5.1%

The Israel ETF is taking a notable hit as downward market action is driving investors out of international markets. This decline has pushed EIS back towards the lows witnessed at the end of last week.

As I've explained before, top heavy funds like EIS should be approached with caution. This fund sets aside over a fifth of its index to a single company, Teva Pharmaceuticals (TEVA).

iShares MSCI Thailand Investable Market Index Fund (THD) -4.3%

Emerging Southeast Asian nations are heading lower for another day as jittery investors steer clear of risky regions of the globe.

THD has broken below its 200-day moving average and is currently carving out brand new August lows.

The Market Vectors Indonesia ETF (IDX) is falling as well.

iShares MSCI Germany Index Fund (EWG) -3.1%

Nations across the European continent are taking shots across the bow, pushing ETFs like EWG and iShares MSCI Spain Index Fund (EWP) lower. Non-EU members from this region are falling as well, including iShares MSCI Sweden Index Fund (EWD) and Global X Norway ETF (NORW), which are both off over 2%.

All prices as of 2:14 PM EST
