Meanwhile, poor earnings news from Altera (ALTR) is playing a part in driving the iShares PHLX SOX Semiconductor Sector Index Fund (XSD) lower.
Teucrium Corn ETF (CORN) -0.9%The futures-tracking corn ETF managed to push higher during yesterday's trading action, capping a steep, three-day sell off. As the weekend approached, however, selling pressure has picked back up and the fund has given back a large chunk of its gains.
CORN's recent bout of weakness pushed it to brand new 2012 lows. In the coming days, it will be interesting to see if the fund can find some stable footing.
