NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Here are today's ETF winners and losers.
iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures ETN (VXX) 2.1%The market's mood continues to waver as investors digest macroeconomic news abroad and corporate earnings data here at home. This, in turn, has caused the fear-tracking VIX benchmark and ETNs like VXX to exhibit some rollercoaster action.
VXX has struggled in the days since its six-day winning streak was broken. In the days ahead, it will be interesting to see what's next here.
United States Natural Gas Fund (UNG) 0.4%Yesterday's selling action pushed UNG to brand-new lifetime lows. During mid-week trading, the troubled futures-tracking fund has managed to stage a slight comeback.
The premium-plagued iPath Dow Jones UBS Natural Gas Subindex ETN (GAZ) is not as fortunate; it is currently suffering a notable loss.
iShares MSCI Spain Index Fund (EWP) -3.8%After taking a backseat during yesterday's positive trading action, Spain's macroeconomic woes have again entered discussion. This has made for a choppy trading session. EWP's weakness has caused it to give back all of the gains it witnessed yesterday. The same can be said for the iShares MSCI Italy Index Fund (EWI).
Continue to steer clear of Europe-linked ETFs. Their back and forth day to day action will likely linger on.
