NEW YORK (TheStreet) - Here are this week's winners and losers.
United States Natural Gas Fund ( UNG) -8.1% Natural gas prices fell hard this week as the fuel remains weighed down by oversupply concerns. This weakness led UNG and iPath Dow Jones UBS Natural Gas Total Return Subindex ETN ( GAZ) to break below their 50-day moving averages. This fuel remains a popular corner of the energy market to watch but I urge investors to avoid UNG and GAZ in favor of an equity based fund such as First Trust ISE Revere Natural Gas Index Fund ( FCG). Market Vectors India Small Cap Index Fund ( SCIF) -6.2% The Indian market place got battered this week as inflation concerns weighed heavily on the minds of investors. These fears causing funds such as the PowerShares India Portfolio ( PIN) and the WisdomTree India Earnings Fund ( EPI) to tumble lower, revisiting levels last seen prior to their fall 2010 rallies. The biggest decliner of the week, however, was the SCIF, which retreated to brand new all time lows. Other corners of the small-cap emerging market ETF universe struggled as well. The Market Vectors Brazil Small Cap Index ETF ( BRF) suffered a heavy loss. Written by Don Dion in Williamstown, Mass.
