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.


Market Vectors India Small Cap Index ETF

(SCIF) - Get VanEck Vectors India Growth Leaders ETF Report


After a string of steep losses, the small cap India ETF is at last finding some footing, benefiting as markets head higher. These gains are impressive, helping the volatile product recover just about all of the ground lost during Monday's downturn.

Other India-related ETFs are reveling in the strength. The

WisdomTree India Earnings Fund

(EPI) - Get WisdomTree India Earnings Fund Report

is up over 2% during early afternoon trading.

iShares Silver Trust

(SLV) - Get iShares Silver Trust Report


Silver and other industry-linked precious metals are benefiting as investors remain resilient in their bullishness. In addition, the ETFS

Physical Palladium Shares

(PALL) - Get Aberdeen Standard Physical Palladium Shares ETF Report

is sitting in solid positive territory.

Even gold is heading higher. The

iShares Gold Trust

(IAU) - Get iShares Gold Trust Report

is up less than 1%.

Market Vectors Indonesia ETF



While India is leading the way, a variety of other emerging market-related ETFs are also pushing higher. The Indonesia-tracking IDX is jumping, putting an end to its five-day string of losses. Meanwhile, funds linked to Eastern Europe, like the

iShares MSCI Turkey Investable Market Index Fund

(TUR) - Get iShares MSCI Turkey ETF Report

and the

iShares MSCI Poland Investable Market Index Fund

(EPOL) - Get iShares MSCI Poland ETF Report

have quickly shaken off the Greece downgrade news.


Market Vectors Vietnam ETF

(VNM) - Get VanEck Vietnam ETF Report


After seven consecutive days of gains, the Vietnam ETF appears to be taking a breather. As I've explained in recent weeks when talking about SCIF, high-flying funds must be approached with extreme caution. Steep gains can be alluring, but these products tend to swing wildly in both directions.

United States Natural Gas Fund

(UNG) - Get United States Natural Gas Fund LP Report


The premium underlying the

iPath Dow Jones UBS Natural Gas Subindex Total Return ETN

(GAZ) - Get iPath Series B Bloomberg Natural Gas Subindex Total Return ETN Report

has breached 65%. This disconnect is causing the fund to trade out of line with other ETFs linked to natural gas futures contracts. While UNG is suffering over 3% losses, GAZ is down less than 1%.

iShares Dow Jones U.S. Home Construction Index Fund

(ITB) - Get iShares U.S. Home Construction ETF Report


The homebuilder ETF has volleyed between wins and losses for more than a week as the market determines where next this battered industry will head. Interestingly, while ITB is topping the losers list; its nearest competitor, the

SPDR S&P Homebuilder ETF

(XHB) - Get SPDR S&P Homebuilders ETF Report

is off less than 1%.
