Dion 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.


Teucrium Corn ETF (CORN) 1.6%

Corn futures are heading higher, pushing CORN and the iPath Dow Jones UBS Grains Subindex Total Return ETN (JJG) to solid gains. The same strength cannot be seen across the broad agriculture industry, as the PowerShares DB Agriculture Fund (DBA) trades in relatively unchanged territory.

Utilities Select Sector SPDR (XLU) 1.2%

Utilities are enjoying some glimmers of life as shaky market action drives investors into safer sectors. XLU is headed to its fourth consecutive day of gains, pushing to its highest levels since the start of the year. This action is encouraging; throughout the opening months of 2012, the fund has struggled to break away from its 50-day moving average. It will be interesting to see if this move is a sign of a larger breakout.


Market Vectors Solar Energy ETF (KWT) -3.7%

As the U.S. markets exhibit rocky action, some of the most inherently-volatile industries are taking the biggest hits. Solar, for example, has struggled in this choppy environment, locking in its first losses in four trading sessions. The Guggenheim Solar ETF (TAN), meanwhile, is witnessing the end to a two-day winning streak.

Continue to watch the solar energy industry from the sidelines. It will continue to waver as global macroeconomic concerns weigh on confidence.

iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures ETN (VXX) -2.8%

After kicking off the week on a shaky note, some U.S. stock market indices have managed to move into positive territory. Despite the mixed action, fear-tracking VIX ETNs like VXX have struggled to break out of the red.

With Monday's losses, VXX has broken to new 2012 lows.

United States Natural Gas Fund (UNG) -2.7%

Futures-linked natural gas exchange-traded products are heading into negative territory as shaky market action drives investors out of market-correlated asset classes. With these losses, UNG has broken to an all-time low.

The iPath Dow Jones UBS Natural Gas Subindex Total Return ETN (GAZ) is taking a hit as well but its losses are contained, thanks to its staggering premium.
