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.


iPath Dow Jones UBS Natural Gas Subindex Total Return ETN (GAZ) 6.6%

Natural gas has spent most the month showing investors how far it can fall. Heading into the final full week of January trading, however, futures-backed funds like GAZ and the United States Natural Gas Fund (UNG) at last appear to be finding some footing.

This upward action is boding well for gas producers as well. The First Trust ISE Revere Natural Gas Index Fund (FCG) is up over 4% in early afternoon trading.

iShares MSCI Austria Investable Market Index Fund (EWO) 2.8%

Europe-related fears have been cast to the sidelines over the past week, helping some of the most troubled members of this region push higher. Austria, for example, has had a welcomed rally, helping EWO to five consecutive days of upward action. The fund has not traded at this level since the first half of November.

Global X Uranium ETF (URA) 2.5%

After stumbling into the weekend, uranium miners appear to have shaken off the jitters, helping URA get back to its positive trajectory.

The fund has broken above its October highs and appears on track to test its 200-day moving average. This will be the first time that the young fund has visited this level.

Meanwhile, fellow uranium-tracker, the Market Vectors Uranium+Nuclear Energy ETF (NLR), has yet to revisit its autumn highs.

SPDR S&P Oil & Gas Exploration & Production Index ETF (XOP) 2.5%

XOP and a number of other ETFs linked to energy producers are powering higher as strong market conditions drive investors back into growth-correlated sectors.

The SPDR S&P Oil & Gas Equipment & Services Index Fund (XES) and the iShares Dow Jones U.S. Oil Equipment & Services Index Fund (IEZ) are taking hits. Losses from industry giants like Halliburton (HAL) and Baker Hughes (BHI) have caused the fund to remain in unchanged territory.

Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (GDXJ) 0.88%

The junior gold miner ETF spent the past few days trading along its 50-day moving average. At the start of the week, however, the fund appears to have broken higher. Looking to the near term, investors should continue to monitor this level; since dipping below in September, it has proven to be a point of resistance.
