NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Welcome to Don Dion's "ETF Winners and Losers." Be sure to stop by throughout the week to find out which ETFs are gaining or losing.
iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures ETN (VXX) 2.8%
The U.S. markets are starting off the week on a shaky note as European economic issues reignite investor fears and drive many into safe haven asset classes.
The fear-tracking VIX index is reveling in today's jitters, helping it recapture some of the losses suffered during last week's late week sell-off. The VXX is in the process of testing its 50-day moving average.iShares Barclays 20+ Year Treasury Bond Fund (TLT) 1.2% Long-term U.S. treasuries are falling into favor as markets head lower and investors seek out protection against looming macroeconomic headwinds. TLT's 50-day moving average may be a point to watch in the near term. This level appears to have become a point of support. It will be interesting to see if it holds up in the days ahead. iPath Dow Jones UBS Copper Subindex Total Return ETN (JJC) 0.4% Despite the market's losses, copper prices are witnessing strength, indicated by the upward action seen from JJC. The fund's two-day climb has helped it recover to its 50-day moving average. This point should prove interesting, because the fund has struggled to break through during the first two weeks of this month.
