Dion's Monday 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

SPDR S&P Oil & Gas Exploration & Production ETF (XOP) 6.4%

Oil producers are enjoying a strong bounce as sweeping market strength reignites investor confidence and eases growth concerns.

Strength from energy producers is helping to lift energy heavy international ETFs like the Market Vectors Russia ETF (RSX) as well. In this single session, the fund has managed to recover all of the ground lost over the past week.

iShares MSCI France Index Fund (EWQ) 6.5%

EWQ is enjoying an impressive bounce as we approach the end of November. The fund is currently trading at levels above those seen prior to last week's four-day slide.

Other Europe-linked ETFs are surging as well, with the iShares MSCI Germany Index Fund (EWG) and SPDR EURO STOXX 50 ETF (FEZ) among the biggest movers.

iShares MSCI South Africa Index Fund (EZA) 5.9%

The South Africa ETF is scoring industry-leading gains at the start of the week, helped higher by its ample exposure to materials producers. In the past, I have pointed to EZA as an attractive alternative play on the precious metals industry. Companies including AngloGold Ashanti (AU), Impala Platinum, and Gold Fields (GFI) can be found among the fund's top 10 positions.

The SPDR S&P Metals & Mining ETF (XME) and the Global X Silver Miners ETF (SIL) are heading higher as well.

First Trust Dow Jones Internet Index Fund (FDN) 4.1%

The Internet-linked ETF is seeing gains as consumers continue their holiday shopping from the comfort of their office desks and living room sofas. Strong holiday retail expectations are one of the driving forces behind the market's rally. Looking to the near term, it will be interesting to see this strength continues.

Losers

iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures ETN (VXX) -5.5%

Although stomachs may still be full following Thanksgiving, investors are showing an appetite for risk. As markets surge higher, the fear-tracking VIX index is taking a shot across the bow.

Yet again, the 50-day moving average has proven to be a resilient point of resistance for this closely-watched index.

iPath Dow Jones UBS Natural Gas Subindex Total Return ETN (GAZ) -2.7%

Futures-tracking natural gas exchange traded products are taking hits, snapping two-day winning streaks.
