Dion's Tuesday ETF Winners and Losers

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Here are today's ETF Winners and Losers.

Winners

iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures ETN (VXX) 6.7%

Tuesday marks the S&P 500's fifth consecutive day of declines -- its longest streak of losses in 2012. This downward action has pushed the S&P 500 ETF (SPY) back to its 50-day moving average.

As stocks work to regain footing, the fear-tracking VIX index has enjoyed a welcomed resurgence. The benchmark is trading at its highest level since the beginning of March. The VXX, meanwhile, continues to enjoy a bounce off all-time lows.

Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (GDXJ) 1.8%

After four consecutive losing sessions, the junior gold miner ETF is at last finding some solid ground. The fund's recent descent has pushed it to levels last seen during the summer months of 2010. Coming up will be interesting to see if more strength is in store for this battered corner of the precious metals industry.

Bullion strength is helping to push GDXJ to strength. The iShares Gold Trust (IAU) is up over 1% in afternoon trading.

iShares Barclays 20+ Year Treasury Bond Fund (TLT) 0.9%

With equities heading south, investors are shunning risk and heading back into safe havens. A four day string of gains has helped TLT recover to levels seen prior to its mid-March downturn. The fund has managed to recapture its 50-day moving average; it will be interesting to see if these heights can be maintained.

The risk off attitude can be felt in the currency realm with investors piling back into the Japanese yen. The CurrencyShares Japanese Yen Trust (FXY) has staged an impressive rally in recent weeks, surging to March highs. If market turmoil persists, this forex player could be in for some additional gains. As with any currency holding, however, investors should use caution.

Losers

iPath Dow Jones UBS Natural Gas Subindex Total Return ETN (GAZ) -3.9%

Once again, the premium laden, futures-tracking natural gas ETN is topping the losers list. The fund's decline isn't entirely attributable to its substantial disconnect, however. The United States Natural Gas Fund (UNG) is also taking a lump as downward action drives investors out of risky market corners.

iShares MSCI Italy Index Fund (EWI) -3.8%

Rekindled EU fears are taking their toll on Europe-linked exchange traded products. The brunt of the pain can be seen from EWI, though the iShares MSCI Spain Index Fund (EWP), the iShares MSCI France Index Fund (EWQ) and the iShares MSCI Netherlands Investable Market Index Fund (EWN) are also heading south.

iShares MSCI Turkey Investable Market Index Fund (TUR) -3.3%

As markets slide to another day of losses, a wide collection of emerging market ETFs are finding themselves facing noteworthy pressure. The pain can be felt across the globe as TUR, the iShares MSCI Mexico Investable Market Index Fund (EWW), and the iShares MSCI Thailand Investable Market Index Fund (THD) drop over 1%.

A five-day stumble has caused TUR to give back nearly all of the gains it witnessed during March.
