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

Teucrium Corn ETF (CORN) 2.6%

The markets are witnessing choppy action at the start of the week, driving many sectors lower. One industry that is outperforming, however, is agriculture. Exchange traded products linked to crop futures, including CORN, iPath Dow Jones UBS Grains Subindex Total Return ETN (JJG) and iPath Dow Jones UBS Livestock Subindex Total Return ETN (COW) are among the biggest movers.

iShares MSCI Spain Index Fund (EWP) 1.0%

Despite widespread market jitters, the Spain ETF is managing to power higher. Meanwhile, ETFs linked to other corners of the EU monetary bloc are seeing tepid action; iShares MSCI Germany Index Fund (EWG) and iShares MSCI France Index Fund (EWQ) are relatively unchanged.

Losers

iShares MSCI South Korea Index Fund (EWY) -4.1%

The death of North Korean leader, Kim Jong-Il has dominated headlines and sparked jitters around the globe. Concerns about instability have weighed heavily on South Korea's marketplace, leading EWY to industry-leading losses.

In the coming days, conservative investors will want to monitor EWY from the sidelines. Rockiness will likely ensue as more is learned about this event.

iShares Silver Trust (SLV) -2.7%

Silver prices managed to stage a slight comeback late last week. These gains, however, have been dashed as lingering economic concerns drive investors out of growth-linked asset classes.

SLV has broken below the lows of late September, returning all of the gains seen during its dramatic early-2011 rally.

Palladium is taking a hit as well. The ETFS Physical Palladium Shares (PALL) is off more than 1%.

iShares MSCI Turkey Investable Market Index Fund (TUR) -2.7%

TUR has suffered a steep unrelenting decline as European economic concerns continue to weigh heavily on sentiment. Early-week losses have pushed the fund to its lowest levels since mid-2009.

India is another emerging market player running toward substantial hurdles. Shares of WisdomTree India Earning ETF (EPI) have also retreated to mid-2009 levels.

iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures ETN (VXX) -2.6%

For a third day, the VXX ETN is heading lower. This descent has pushed the product closer to the lows it witnessed during late October.

At the same time that VXX is struggling to find footing, the VIX index is heading higher. The fear benchmark is still stuck below its 200-day moving average, however. This remains a level of interest.

All prices as of 2:15 pm EST
