Dion's Tuesday ETF Winners and Losers

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.

Winners

iShares Silver Trust (SLV) 3.8%

Monday's relentless stream of bad news sent droves of investors fleeing for shelter. Interestingly, despite being a popular safe haven asset class, gold struggled to hold up, falling alongside other members of the precious metals spectrum.

These losses, however, are being pared back as SLV and iShares Gold Trust (IAU) find footing. Gold's strength is helping to buoy the junior miners underlying the Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (GDXJ).

United States Gasoline Fund (UGA) 1.9%

The futures-backed gasoline ETF is following up Monda's gains with another day of positive action. This spurt of strength is welcomed for the fund, which has struggled to stabilize over the past few weeks.

Fellow energy ETFs are not faring well. The United States Oil Fund (USO) and the United States Natural Gas Fund (UNG) are in negative territory.

iShares MSCI South Korea Index Fund (EWY) 1.4%

Amidst the choppy trading action, South Korea's marketplace is scoring standout gains. The strength from EWY comes after Monday's losses which pushed the fund below its 50-day moving average for the first time since mid-October.

The Market Vectors Indonesia ETF (IDX) and Market Vectors Vietnam ETF (VNM) are fellow Asia-linked products trading in positive territory.

Losers

Guggenheim Shipping ETF (SEA) -2.3%

The global shipping industry is taking a heavy hit as investors express doubts about global growth prospects. SEA has descended to the all-time lows last seen in early October.

SEA is not a fund I would encourage investors to try their luck with. In the past, the fund has struggled to gather interest. Its average daily trading volume is just barely more than 50,000.

iPath Dow Jones UBS Sugar Subindex Total Return ETN (SGG) -3.2%

The sugar futures-tracking SGG is tumbling for a fifth day, returning to levels seen last December. Other agriculture exchange traded products including the Teucrium Corn ETF (CORN) are also in the red.

In the face of crop price weakness, agriculture equities have been resilient. The Market Vectors Agribusiness ETF (MOO) is up over 0.5%.
