Dion's Tuesday ETF Winners and Losers

Stocks in this article: GDXJ TAN IEZ SLX VXX TLT

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

Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (GDXJ) 6.9%

After tumbling during Monday's market weakness, junior gold miners are staging an impressive comeback.

The bullion-backed iShares Gold Trust (IAU) is heading higher as well. With these gains, the fund has managed to recover to its 200-day moving average. Looking to the days ahead, it will be interesting to see if this point proves to be one of resistance.

Guggenheim Solar ETF (TAN) 6.8%

As the markets head higher, some of the most battered industries are catching a break. For example, after six consecutive days of declines, the solar energy industry-tracking TAN is finding some footing and powering off of all-time lows.

Despite these gains, investors should continue to steer clear of TAN and other solar energy-linked ETFs.

iShares Dow Jones U.S. Oil Equipment & Services Index Fund (IEZ) 5.7%

Oil and gas companies are gaining ground, helping IEZ recover the losses suffered during Monday's weakness. Other producer-focused ETFs heading higher include SPDR S&P Oil & Gas Exploration & Production ETF (XOP) and First Trust ISE Revere Natural Gas Index Fund (FCG).

Meanwhile, choppy action is taking place within the realm of futures-linked energy ETFs. While the United States Oil Fund (USO) and United States Gasoline Fund (UGA) witness impressive gains, the troubled United States Natural Gas Fund (UNG) is seeing slight losses, pushing the fund to its fifth day of losses.

Market Vectors Steel ETF (SLX) 5.0%

The relentless barrage of concerning economic news caused the steel producer ETF to give back nearly all of the gains witnessed during its late-November run up. As investors regain confidence, however, this fund is catching a break.

Use caution here. SLX will likely face continued pressure in the event that market fears make a comeback.

Losers

iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures ETN (VXX) -5.4%

For a fifth day, the fear-tracking VXX is locked in negative territory. With these losses, the ETN has retreated to its October lows.

The VIX index is heading south as well. The benchmark is currently trading at levels last seen in early August. This marks the fund's fourth consecutive day trading below its 200-day moving average.
