Dion's Friday ETF Winners and Losers

ProShares UltraShort 20+ Year Treasury Bond Fund (TBT) -1.8%

As U.S. stock market indices slide into the close, investors are regaining an appetite for safe haven asset classes. As TBT heads into negative territory, the iShares Barclays 20+ Year Treasury Bond Fund (TLT) is enjoying approximately 1% gains. The U.S. dollar is gaining ground as well. The PowerShares DB U.S. Dollar Index Bullish Fund (UUP) is up over 0.5%.

iShares MSCI Sweden Index Fund (EWD) -1.5%

After Thursday's climb, ETFs linked to the troubled European Union are again heading lower. The losses are not exclusive to the monetary bloc, however. On the contrary, EWD and the iShares MSCI Switzerland Index Fund (EWL) (EWL) are following the iShares MSCI Italy Index Fund and iShares MSCI Germany Index Fund (EWG) into the red.

All prices as of 2:11 PM EST.
