NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Welcome to Don Dion's Daily ETF Winners and Losers. Be sure to stop by each day to get a feel of who's winning and who's losing when it comes to ETFs.

Winners

iPath Dow Jones-UBS Sugar Total Return Subindex ETN ( SGG) 5.1%

Sugar is sweet today with SGG scoring some of the biggest gains across the ETF realm. The gains mark the largest rise for the commodity in three weeks as buyers return to the market.

SGG may be in for additional gains in the near future thanks to the Phillipines, which according to BusinessWeek, is expected to halt exports due to weak production.

iPath S&P VIX Short Term Futures ETN ( VXX) 1.5%

Fraud allegations against Goldman Sachs ( GS) (GS) continued to strike fear in the hearts of investors, driving them out of the market. In response to a shaky trading day, the VIX has seen gains, driving the futures-backed VXX higher.

Losers

SPDR Emerging Europe ETF ( GUR) -3.1%

Although the fund saw a nice pop after hitting its 50-day moving average during the latter half of March, GUR's performance throughout the start of April has been choppy. On Monday, the fund tacked on its third consecutive day of losses.

GUR tracks a basket of companies hailing from five nations: Russia, Turkey, Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic. Russia accounts for the fund's largest geographic slice, commanding over 60% of the fund's total index.

Claymore/MAC Global Solar Energy ETF ( TAN) -3.1%

Solar and alternative energy ETFs took a heavy hit on Monday. Over the past few weeks, TAN has managed to break through its 50-day moving average and approach the higher 200-day levels. Unfortunately, on Friday the fund reversed and losses continued into Monday.

iShares Dow Jones Taiwan Index Fund ( EWT) -2.7%

The impact of Goldman Sachs' situation could be felt around the globe on Monday. In Taiwan, negative sentiment stemming from troubles facing the bank holding company was blamed for a rocky trading day. Taiwanese financial firms were not the only companies to take a hit, however. AU Optronics ( AUO), a LCD maker which accounts for 2.3% of EWT, also fell during Monday's trading.

United States Natural Gas Fund ( UNG) -2.4%

On Monday, supply issues continued to weigh on natural gas prices and UNG. Aside from the supply issues, a mild weather report didn't bode well for forecasted demand.

Throughout April, UNG has been trading sideways. Though I wouldn't recommend playing the fund, it may be interesting to check out which direction it takes in the near future, as it is holding just above all-time lows.
