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.
Market Vectors Solar Energy ETF (KWT) 7.9%
Solar energy ETFs are gaining ground, helping KWT and the Guggenheim Solar ETF (TAN) punch through its highs in October. Today's action extends TAN's winning streak to seven days.
LosersiShares MSCI Turkey Investable Market Index Fund (TUR) -1.1% The emerging nations comprising Eastern Europe are struggling, pushing funds like TUR and the Market Vectors Russia ETF (RSX) into negative territory. Meanwhile, nations to the west are seeing limited action to the upside. The iShares MSCI Germany Index Fund (EWG), the iShares MSCI France Index Fund (EWQ) and the iShares MSCI Spain Index Fund (EWP) have gained less than 0.5%. Teucrium Corn ETF (CORN) -1.1% While the base metal-tracking DBB is heading higher, the same can not be said for other futures-backed ETFs. For example, funds like CORN and the iPath Dow Jones UBS Grains Subindex Total Return ETN (JJG) are heading lower. The weakness in grains is weighing on broader agriculture ETFs as well. The PowerShares DB Agriculture Fund (DBA) is off nearly 1%.
